Sneaky Chef Top Pick: Cerastone® CeraComm 10 and 12 inch Fry Pans

byMissy Chase-Lapine

Healthy Cooking isn’t just about Healthy Recipes

Heathy Cooking Starts in the Pan

Why I like Ceramic non-stick skillets like Cerastone®?—healthy cooking really does start in the pan! Regular non-stick cookware contains chemicals (PTFE and PFOA) that release when heated. My goal is to get toxins out of your life. So do your body a favor and invest in a ceramic-coated pan—like Cerastone®—which don’t contain any of these potentially harmful chemicals.

The CeraComm 10 and 12 inch fry pan has a steel handle and UltraCoat 22 Titanium ceramic interior that makes it safe for high oven temperatures; so you can go straight from the stove top to the oven in the same pan! I love less clean-up. You also get a removable silicone sleeve making it heat resistant and comfortable to hold.

When cooking is YOU can be confidant that you are feeding your family not just nutritionally healthy recipes, but chemically healthy as well.

Try some of my favorite recipes in your new Cerastone® non-stick pan including my:
Crunchy Kale Crust Pizza – you read it correctly, kale crust pizza, pizza doesn’t get any more guilt-free than that. Get the thin perfectly crisp pizza at home every time.
Speedy Stovetop Lasagna – perfect for a busy weeknight dinner or lunch idea for the whole family, and with 8 hidden veggies no one will believe it’s actually good for them.
Protein Pancakes – these protein packed pancakes are a healthy alternative to breakfasts on the go; make ahead and then heat for just 30 seconds in the microwave for a grab-n-go breakfast you and your family can feel good about
Zucchini Pasta Piccata – eliminate the carbs and the carb crash with this delicious zucchini noodle substitute. With all of the flavor and none of the guilt, this will be your go-to dinner.
Seared Salmon with Dill Sauce – Seared salmon paired with my veggie packed dill sauce will have even the best chefs impressed. This meal is not only easy but has all of the good fats and none of the bad. Go for it, dip your toe in the sea.

The CeraStone CeraComm cookware line is Sneaky Chef tested and approved. I love it so much I’ve even given it as a gift. You could say, it’s one of those gifts that keep on giving.

Skinny Sweet Potato Donut Bites

Healthy Donuts…What?

One summer, I visited Portland, Maine, where they’re famous for potato donuts—which are great, but weigh about 2 pounds each! I came home inspired to make them, only waaay lighter and healthier. Mine use sweet potatoes and carrots and I bake them instead of frying them. OMG are they delish.

Sneak Peek into my new book, Sneaky Blends

byMissy

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!

This past week my two daughters were at home on Spring Vacation. The weather wasn’t so great, so one day my husband Rick and I decided to take them on a picnic–right here in our living room. Talk about instant excitement! We spread out our picnic blanket and decked it with paper plates, Sneaky Chef favorites, and a bowl of crunchy carrots, celery and dip. Everyone clambered onto the now limited blanket space including Princess, our stout retriever. Before I knew it, my youngest had rocked on her back in a burst of giggles as "Prinny" persistently wriggled toward her plate of goodies. Then she rocked back up, and PLOP! one cute but way too dirty foot went straight into the bowl of baked beans! Only my daughter Sammy could end up with her foot in a bowl of baked beans : )

Food can be fun together, and eating can be one of the most relaxing things we do as a family. When I don’t have to worry about whether or not my daughters are getting their quota of nutrients, or nag my husband to eat smart, I’m free to focus more on just having fun. I encourage everyone to boost your family favorites the Sneaky Chef way. Or if you have a favorite I haven’t yet "sneakified" in my two books, let me know and I’ll get straight to work so that you can enjoy more at the table, too!

With healthiest regards,

Missy
