Pampered chef has improved recipes!

Pampered Chef has really changed it's recipes!

I've always liked the cookware.  It's easy to use, lasts forever (I have had my original stone pizza round and deep baker for 20 years now!)  and it's a great reason to get friends together.

But now, their recipes are a lot healthier!  I purchased the appetizer book which is filled with great whole food recipes.  They still use a little mayo, cheese and sour cream, but many of the recipes are dairy and gluten free or are easily modified.  Long gone are the whole sticks of butter and the constant use of crescent roll dough.

Today we did an organic roasted red pepper dip with organic blue corn chips.  The dip was made from scratch!...using of course the PC cooking utensils.   I did buy the chips.   We also sliced up and made dried apples with cinnamon.  Lastly we had a great lime, avocado salsa appetizers.

Also in the new recipe books, you will find a vegan cookbook!   So yay for Pampered Chef!

JJ's Smoothie

Here is a recipe for my mom's favorite smoothie.
She's in her 80s and loves to start her day with this recipe.

1 banana
1 apple, cored (if you buy organic, then you don't have to peel it!)
1 cup nut milk (almond)
1 small handful of baby spinach
1/4 tsp of spirulina
1 tsp fish oil
2 tsp nutritional yeast
1 scoop (24g) powdered whey protein (unsweetened, non-GMO, rBGH free)
(I've started using a 1/2 cup of oatmeal.  Costs less, fresher and makes and thicker smoothie!)

Put all ingredients in the blender for about 45 seconds to blend it really well.
