Create better-for-you Brown Bag Lunches

(NC) If your meals for work are starting to feel bland, try a Canadian secret for zipping up sandwiches – mustard. Homemade meals come to life with just a dash of the condiment.

Mustard is a staple crop for Canadian farmers. We export it all around the world – to Europe, the United States and Asia.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada researchers are also working with mustard growers and processors to find new uses for this hearty plant. For example, mustard is used in environmentally friendly pesticides, added to bio-diesel additives, and makes a great natural fertilizer. In the kitchen, try making a tasty dip to pair with omega-3 rich salmon wraps.
