Nutrition News You Can Use

As we round the corner of celebratory fun through the holiday season and end of year, what prevents you from sprawling the cookie table like there will be no tomorrow?

Prior to finding health and nutrition and the answers to cravings, I was a full blown addict. I literally fell apart with habitual binging only to make yet another resolution that would lead me to that constant yo-yo diet behavior with the beginning of every new year.

How do you plan to stick with your healthy eating plan? Of course, being well prepared with plenty of nutrient dense options is the best answer and I have some exciting news!

I have co-authored my first cookbook! This special read will delight you with easy to obtain ingredients for nutrient dense holiday entertaining and each and every one of these recipes will have your guests requesting the recipe! Of course, if you direct them to the cookbook, I am eternally grateful...

What sets these innovative low-carb and gluten-free recipes apart is not only the fact that they are truly delicious; but that they are all pleasing to the eye—something that’s really critical to providing the wow factor while entertaining for the holidays.

The book doesn’t stop at recipes, though. It provides many cooking and entertaining tips as well so that even novice home chefs can feel confident in their offerings. Full menus are also available for specific holidays or occasions, such as a formal buffet, Thanksgiving dinner and sweethearts dinner for Valentine’s Day.

“I made the mistake of reviewing this book without eating breakfast. Just reading the table of contents is making me ravenous! Bleu Cheese Bacon Bites? Cauliflower, Sausage and Gruyère Soup? Mixed Baby Greens with Strawberry Champagne Vinaigrette? Sautéed Chicken with Olives, Capers, and Roasted Lemons? Are you kidding me?!

Incredible! Tracey and Misty have come up with a dazzling variety of recipes just in time for the holiday party season. If you want to serve your guests dishes that will cement your reputation as a brilliant hostess while staying on track nutritionally, you need this book. You need it badly.
