Some of you have noticed that I've started to add nutritional analysis to the free recipes offered on my website, prompted by your requests. While I intentionally designed all of my recipes to be lower in calories and fat and high in fiber, I was also concerned with slipping in the superfoods that can change our health for the better. It wasn't until I saw the numbers myself that I realized the final Sneaky Chef recipes often have only a fraction of the calories and fat of their traditional counterparts, and usually many times the fiber. It's no wonder my husband is losing weight and his cholesterol is down!
One group of firemen I interviewed for the Sneaky Chef Men's Book told me that it would be one thing to hide what they called "super veggies" in their favorite foods, but that it would be quite another to have their favorite comfort foods remade to be lower in calories and fat. They didn't believe I could do it while still having their favorite meals turn out tasting as good as the original. That was what they wanted: to have it taste like the original, but be healthy.
So the challenge was laid out before me. I'd been able to do it with kid's meals, but these were grown men. They were ready to detect anything even slightly different, and I took this as a challenge.
Their desires resulted in sneakily enhanced versions of many of their favorites, including Boosted Buffalo Wings, Major Leek Soup, Hobo Hash and Stacked Pancakes (click here to go to The Sneaky Chef: How to Cheat on Your Man in the Kitchen).
I say, if you can make it taste just as good, why not make every recipe as healthy as it can be? If you'd like to see your favorite fattening recipe remade The Sneaky Chef way and made way healthier, please send it to me in this blog or to my email at Missy@TheSneakyChef.com. I'll work on as many recipes as I can, and post the results and the before and after nutritional comparisons on this site.
Thanks for all your great comments and support!
With healthiest regards,
