Food Friday: Bake It, Don’t Fake It by Heather Bertinetti

Food Friday: Bake It, Don’t Fake It by Heather Bertinetti

The other day I was reading the Hidden Order Bonus Chapter author Brad Thor gifted to his fans (see our post about it here) and saw that his publisher also had an excerpt available for Bake It, Don’t Fake It with a cover featuring beautiful red velvet macarons. I love to bake and have been wanting to learn how to make macarons for a while now, so I clicked on the excerpt and was impressed with what I read.

An estimated 3 million Americans have Celiac Disease. Celiac Disease is an autoimmune condition that damages the villi of the small intestine which inhibits nutrient absorption that can cause a myriad of problems, not limited to migraines, thyroid disease and more. The Celiac Disease Foundation reports 95% of CD is misdiagnosed or undiagnosed. A strict gluten free diet is the main treatment. Finding the right resources is extremely important in maintaining health.

Cookbook Review: Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld

Cookbook Review: Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld

I’m excited to introduce our guest host today, Betsy Ramirez, M.Ed., R.D., from Supermarket Nutrition 411. Betsy is a registered dietitian and my go-to expert for healthy food choices. Today she’s testing a pizza recipe from Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld.

Deceptively Delicious Pizza:
I love cookbooks! In fact, you might say I have a cookbook problem. My shelves are overflowing, so I am so grateful to have Lazy Day Books to keep me organized with their enormous selection of e-cookbooks. What fuels my cookbook hoarding? I am a registered dietitian, so I always look for recipes that focus on wholesome, nutritious food. I am also a mom of 2 preschoolers, one of which is a picky eater. While his palate is expanding, he usually doesn’t get enough veggies in his day. This is why I gravitated toward Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld.

I chose to make her Pita Pizzas (with spinach puree). Why did I choose this recipe? My family loves pizza, and my picky eating son is hard to trick. I also think this is an easy, go to recipe anyone can do and feel good about giving their kids some extra nutrition.
