Recently, the MyPlate program launched a recipe index on Pinterest, a popular social media site.  MyPlate is the food guidance system developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that helps Americans to achieve and maintain a healthy weight through diet and exercise.  If you’re trying to lose weight, MyPlate will help you develop an eating plan to reach your goals.    The new MyPlate Pinterest site offers recipes arranged by food group that are easy to find and easy to prepare.

Try a few of these for Easter or visit the MyPlate Pinterest page to see all the recipes.  While you’re there, check out the new Healthy Weight Loss Pinterest boards.
