Potatoes are very versatile and accessible. They are more energy-packed than any other popular vegetable and provide carbohydrates, potassium, and fiber.

National Homemade Soup Day (2/4)
Soup is one of the most comforting dishes you can make during the cold, winter months. Aside from all of the wonderful aromas that will fill your house as it’s simmering on the stove, soups are a great way to deliver more servings of vegetables in your day for both you and your family.
National Pizza Day (2/9)
Whether you choose to make your own, buy frozen, or order out, I don’t think many people will argue against celebrating National Pizza Day. Here’s a quick recipe to make your own whole wheat pizza dough at home!
The Big Game (2/12)
Regardless of who is playing in the “Big Game” this year, you will most likely be partaking in the popular game day foods and festivities including things like wings, chili, dips, pizza, and more.
Valentine’s Day (2/14)
It’s not just about the chocolate and roses. Valentine’s Day is so much more than that. And by more than that, I mean it’s about the meals, too. While many people enjoy eating a special meal out for Valentine’s Day, it’s equally as nice to make dinner at home. Here are some Valentine’s Day meal ideas if you’re staying in this year.
National Almond Day (2/16)
On this day, you get the opportunity to celebrate all the delicious and versatile ways you can enjoy almonds.
National Chili Day (2/23)
Chili is one of my favorite winter dishes. I love pulling out the slow cooker and getting all the ingredients to simmer together for hours on end. Slow and low is the way to go.
National Pistachio Day (2/26)
Pistachios are such a fun snack. Whether you enjoy them in the shell or shelf, lightly salted or not, these nuts are packed with nutrition. Add them to salads, oatmeal, or enjoy as a snack all on its own.
National Strawberry Day (2/27)
Enjoy a bowl of fresh strawberries on National Strawberry Day! No access to fresh strawberries? No problem. You can enjoy frozen strawberries as well. When you choose frozen strawberries for making a smoothie, it makes the drink frothier, resembling more of a delicious, milkshake texture.
