Dr. Kurt Strecker stirs up the pot and give us a new outlook on healthy foods.  He declares “Fat is not the enemy!” and talks about ways to get started in changing up your food routine. Dr. Kurt also claims that by denying yourself and feeling deprived you can actually eat more.

Then we sizzle with Terry Walters  in the kitchen with her delicious and “cleaner” recipes. Terry debuts her yummy new Blueberry Tart and talks about other tasty recipes which are more sustainable.

“We do ourselves the biggest service by going closer to the source  and recognizing how food grows…. and foods that are nutritionally void fall by the wayside. This supports our good health and the health of our environment. “

    Hi Barb!

    Everyone thinks I’m the pro because I’ve written CLEAN FOOD and CLEAN START, but I’m no different than anyone else when it comes to wanting new motivation and support to eat clean! So, I’m making a clean start myself this year. We all tend to by the same things at the grocery store week in and week out, and I’m no different in that regard. But this year, I’m going to try to purchase one new locally grown item from the produce section each week in effort to jump start my creativity in the kitchen and amp up the nutritional profile of my diet! I hope your readers will join me. Of course, they can find lots of great recipe options in my books, but even if they add one new piece of fresh produce to something they’re already making - whether its a sauce, a stew or even a can of soup - they’ll sure to benefit from the increased nutritional value of eating clean.
