Welcome to the ﬁrst “printing” of my new cookbook!
ﬁrst of all want to welcome you to my ﬁrst oﬃcial cookbook. While in pdf format, I’m still very excited I get to share this with you. The inspiration for this cookbook came from a growth spurt my eldest son had. I just knew there had to be other people out there who wanted healthy/hearty meals and snacks just as much as we did. I did not however want to sacriﬁce taste. I have contacted several family members and friends to contribute recipes to this cause. It is my hope that while this is the ﬁrst copy, I’ll have many revisions in the future when new and scrumptious recipes come to our home. My views on health. Everyone has their own view of what true health is. I have found there will always be extremists. I too tried to be an extremist, however the ﬁnancial cost and the well being of my marriage got me out of that rut quicker than I realized it would. My goal now is to eat as many foods as possible in their natural state. If my family wants a treat, I try to make it homemade with as few reﬁned ingredients as possible. I did however try to keep the focus of this cookbook away from reﬁned foods
My wonderful husband and myself just after he had ﬁnished up bike camp for the year. I was so very excited to have him back in my arms after about a week of him being gone and myself alone with the kids.
which means it is my goal for you to not be able to ﬁnd a recipe that has reﬁned sugar or cream of soup in it. As funny as it may seem, those two ingredients are found in so many of the recipes you ﬁnd today in many homes. I have also tried to keep things as simple as possible while providing you with little tips I’ve learned along the way. I have truly learned to take advice
from people who have been there, tried that. It saves me a lot of time and heartache. I hope you ﬁnd the recipes here-in to be as great in taste as what our family does. Here’s to a new year and a healthier you!
Eating Local and Organic
I am astounded at the organic/healthy products that have come to market since I was a little girl. I remember my great aunt eating and serving “health food” and to be honest, it did not taste all that wonderful. We now have so many options available and more budget friendly than they used to be. Can I recommend that you always eat organic and local foods? If you can ﬁt it into your budget and you have not made this an idol in your life; that’s great! However, for the average american family, this is just not feasible on the budget. I would encourage you to try to purchase organics that are on the dirty dozen list (to your left). I would also encourage you to grow your own produce and purchase locally when possible. If you cannot purchase local produce, make sure to at least use a veggie wash. There are so many co-ops and other ways to save money. You’d be surprised. Please feel free to contact me for more ways on saving money on this journey of your life. email@example.com

Party Planning Tips
- Make dips ahead of time. - Pre-slice or chop and veggies,meats and fruits you possibly can. - Decorate the party area as soon as you can. - Set out all serving dishes and utensils the night before. - Have some music playing in the background - I love beautiful instrumental. It’s great for setting a mood. - If possible, make beverages ahead of time. - Using disposable dishes makes for fast and easy clean up. - Balance out the number of dishes that need to be in the oven or refrigerated. Having all hot/baked appetizers will send you into a frenzy when guests arrive. - Try to have an assortment of ﬂavors and colors. This not only makes the look of the party food exciting, but it also gives you varied vitamins and minerals in the food you’re eating. - Label items that have possible allergens in them. - Label items that may be unknown to the guests.
MANGO SALSAo u t . c o m /
The ﬁrst time I had mango salsa I fell in love. I just couldn’t get my mind around fruit in salsa - then I tried it.
appe tizers - l e t ’ s g e t s t art e d
lanning a party can be so much fun! I just love having company over but sometimes get bogged down in all the ideals of preparation. One thing that has helped me tremendously is making a list of foods we want to eat, the groceries needed for them and last but not least, a scheduled list of what needs to be done and when.
My idea of appetizers has deﬁnitely changed in the past 10 years or so. I used to think it was all fatty, cheese ﬁlled, fried foods. I’ve since discovered so many wonderful recipes that are used for appetizers and most of them are not even hot!
Simple is almost always better. Of course there’s the occasional recipe that takes lots of time, eﬀort and $$ that tastes amazing. However, by and large it’s the simple recipes that pack a great ﬂavor. Just remember, higher quality ingredients really do taste better and can make a good dish great by just making sure you have high quality ingredients.
