Teen’s survival guide to the kitchen

Keeping you healthy safe and stylish

Aprons can be fashionable Buns are in style now, so put that hair up! Those $100 sneakers were meant to be ties up. Baggy shirts are totally cool; just not in the kitchen, roll those sleeves up.

No necklaces in the kitchen, I know it hurts me too.

Could you imagine if one of your brackets fell into you food, gross!

Mexican Tostadas that will spice up your meal time! Why does this recipe fit the Canadian food guide? 4 easy reasons. This recipe has 3 of the 4 categories in the Canadian food guide; meat and alternatives, vegetables and fruits and grain products. Another reason is that the sour cream in this recipe is low fat instead of a regular or higher percentage. My third reason is that the tortillas in this recipe are whole grain instead of white, which is healthier substitution. The final reason this recipe fits the food guide, is because the chicken in this recipe is baked instead of being fried which again is a healthier substitution. This meal is great for teens! It does take time to make, but the ingredients needed for this recipe are already in most peoples kitchens. You don’t need to know a special way of cutting vegetables, or have big fancy equipment. All you need is a little bit of extra time, and a few spices to make this recipe a success. All the FACTTS (flavour, aroma, colour, texture, temperature and smell) with the easy skills needed to make this recipe make it an amazing meal for teens.
