It is easy to make something that is delicious to eat. The downfall of that could be all the added fat and calories. Growing up, I used to take pride in the fact that my best friend, Jessica, and I were “customer of the month” at Taco Bell. This story still keeps me laughing and makes Ellen cringe. Ellen’s passion for healthier options is so confidently presented that I can admit to turning over a new leaf where nutrition is concerned.
Most importantly, she is providing my three children with the proper tools and information needed to make those appropriate choices. My friends are in awe when they witness the interest my children take in food, the diversity of foods they consume, and the fact that they actually like it. Ellen finds yummy ways to introduce and keep my children interested in the better choices. They actually want to eat what is healthier. They are genuinely interested in the process. She takes pride in preparing meals that are delicious and nutritious. You almost forget the fact that you are eating meals that are healthier until she reminds you. She enjoys doing that; however, it is nice to see and be reminded of the benefits you reap from a healthier lifestyle.
We are truly excited about this book. It is a must have and an invaluable tool for anyone wanting to eat better.
