In the past, my cookbooks and recipes have been centered around children with allergies and ways to get picky eaters to eat healthy with hidden veggie recipes. As you and I both know, getting the whole family to eat healthy and enjoy the same things is a challenge for us all. Moms sometimes feed the family what they know their family will eat, even at the expense of their own health. It is time for moms to consider themselves and their health as well as their family's.
I am very excited to introduce my newest cook book, Sneaky Blends. It is focused on moms and ways to eat heathy that are so delicious your family will enjoy them too. I call it my "undiet" becuase these recipes are so satisfying and sneakily nutritous you won't even know you are dieting. This book gives you all the tips and tools you need to get started, plus a Reboot plan to jump-start weight loss and detailed information on how to incorporate blends into not just the recipes in my book but your own favorite dishes, from soups to pastas to brownies.
If you are familiar with my other books, you have probably tried my orange base blend with sweet potatoes and carrots or maybe my white bean base blend with white beans or chick peas. Now you can kick these base blends up a notch and turn them into Detox Blends or Detox Shakes for a nutrious and delicious undiet that is sure to help you drop some of those unwanted pounds.
Here's a sneak peak into one of my favorite recipes from the new book coming out September 27th, 2016...Want more? You can pre-order your copy of Sneaky Blends cook book on Amazon today!
