    Great list of tasty suggestions. I will print this out and use as a

    Since publishing our book, I have found many great products at Trader Joe’s which happen to be house brand items, including their nuts, jams (especially seedless blackberry), pork and vegetable pot-stickers, blueberry soda, their cookies and much, much more.
    Be sure to read labels, wherever you purchase!

      Met Bruno Luccarelli and his wife at Allenhurst beachclub over the weekend, and they told me you had a book signing! I’m SO proud of you, BUT I really need to get on your mailing/email list. Guess it’s in the blood, but I gravitate to and buy cookbooks all the time. I would be a great suporter and word spreader.
      Get in touch when you’re able–
      Love ya!

    A lot of things on that list have LOTS of soduim. Too much for kids in my opinion. That is especially true for the frozen foods. It is a good list as far as packaged food goes but dont think that just because its on this list its something to eat all the time. I would only use in case of emergencies.

      I hear you! We like convenience foods only on occasion, when you can’t do it yourself, knowing how crazy life can get sometimes. It is best to rely on fresh ingredients whenever possible. Thanks for your comment! You can see how important it is to read labels and make it yourself.

    The recipes I have tried so far have been great but I wish time frames were given for both the prep time and cook time. Since they are not given I suggest you completely read all the directions for a recipe you are thinking about before starting so that you don’t run out of time or end up eating at a late hour. There is also an extensive amount of information about eating healthy and what to look for when shopping. It’s a lot to remember and will take some time getting used to. I live in a small town so it is not always easy finding the healthier substitutes suggested but what I have found has made a difference.
