2019 marked a significant change to the longstanding Canadian Food Guide, condensing the four main food groups that many of us had become accustomed to (milk products, meat & alternatives, bread and cereals, and fruits & vegetables) into the three categories that exist today (vegetables & fruits, protein foods, and whole grain food).

Don’t fret, because we are here to tell you that adhering to the new food guide doesn’t have to mean forgoing your enjoyment of food—below, we’ve compiled a mouthwatering list of three of our favourite new Canada Food Guide recipes to build out your cookbook this summer
