Dear Sneaky Chef,

So I am always on the look for new flavored drinks.  Are there any other sneaky drinks that you know of?  I should also mention that I am lactose intolerant.  I can take a dariy aid pill that contains the lactase enzyme so that I can digest the dairy in my foods or drinks. 

I am that forty something guy who has osteoporosis.  That means absolutely zero alcohol or carbonation in my drinks, since both of those things rob the body of calcium.  I am now seriously into good nutrition. 

Thanks, Brian

Missy,
    Well I got everything pureed and ready to go and we had a first supper lastnight and went well.  I did the pizza bagels and the homemade corn chips with nacho dip and no one noticed or complained.  I already made the choc. milk up for breakfast and tried it before my son got up and and you can’t even tell the chery juice is in there.  WELL DONE!!!!  My son really needs this as he east no fruits or vegetables!!!
    I have 3 quick ?’s for you.  First as far as the cherry juice I know we’ll use it a lot b/c he loves choc. milk, but instead of making it Juicy Juice has a cherry juice would that be the same thing??
    Second I have a homemade bread recipe we like it calls for 2c. white flour and 3/1/2 c. whole wheat flour, can I use 5/1/2 c. of the flour blend instead???  Also what are the benifits of the flour blend??
    Thanks so much, as I know we’ll use these recipes everyday, not only is my 4 yr. old picky my brother in law who helps us farm is also and he don’t eat and fruits or vegs. either so I’m helping 2 people and they don’t even know it 🙂 🙂  AWSOME WORK!!!  Melissa

Hi Missy,

Thanks for your great recipies, which I use nearly every
day! My question is: Do you know if any nutritional value of the
veggies in the purees is lost through cooking and/or freezing?
Also, you said you want to know if we use your ideas in any other
recipies, and I have gotten great success with beef stroganoff! I put
one of the darker purees in the ground turkey when browning, and then
I add white or white bean puree to the sauce when mixing. My family
loves it and is none the wiser!

Missy– I just made my first sneaky recipe (the brainy
brownies) and so far, they smell great (and the batter tasted pretty
good, too!) I can’t wait for my husband and toddler to taste them!
My question is: Can I use whole wheat flour instead of the mix of
whole and white?: What about natural sugar cane instead of the white
sugar? WHERE O WHERE can I find a few nutritional information about
the recipes?
Tomorrow I am going to try the mac & Cheese! Thank you for this great
cooking experiment I will have this summer!

I love both of your books- and I would love to share hint based on
your green juice- I 3x’s the recipe in a big soup pot
( Ioften include 3 cups of Swiss Chard or Kale)freeze the juice in
icecube trays that measure about 1TB1/2size cubes) I then put 2 green
juice cubes into my 3 1/2 year olds favorite watered down no sugar
added organic fruit juice – I often defrost the cubes in microwave
slighty and adjust how much I water down the juice based on how green
it may or may not taste but I figure based on your calculations he
gets about 1/2cupto3/4cup of green nutirents in his favorite daily
drink-My child is none the wiser! I often do this for myself as well !
Thank you for your wonderful books – We were already a very healthy
food conscious family but you have contributed some new great ideas
and recipes. –Melissa C.

Missy — thanks for all your insight!!!  How would I get
permission to host a "learn how to cook healthy" night at my son’s
grade school?  We would love to use your recipes and knowledge to
improve on the eating habits of our children.

Hi! My husband and twin boys love the grab and go granola bars. I was wondering if you had the nutritional information listed somewhere? I didn’t see it in the book- which by the way I have absolutely loved using! Thanks for your help Kathy

First I have to say I love your cookbook!!!  I love how your puree’s are a blend of veggies.  I made my first sneaky dinner last night and it was delish!  I am not a big veggie eater but it helps me by having purees in the meal instead of whole veggies.

I just needed to find out how to figure out the caloric value and break down..my husband and I need to watch our calorie intake.

Thank you for the cookbooks!
