When it comes time to cook, all you need to do is add liquids, heat, stir and serve! Perfect for time-crunched people who consume way too many cheeseburgers and shakes every week. Skip the drive-thru and just drive home where you can whip up your own fast food that you’ll never feel guilty about eating!
The Nutrition Kitchen also collects recipes from days gone by. The older they are, the more likely they will be made with all-natural ingredients. This is especially true of pre-World War II books published before the advent of processed food. But be careful with these too because they often include things like pure lard or bacon fat, ‘enriched’ white flour, and white sugar. Our recipe book gives you substitutes that can turn not-so-good-for-you recipes into healthy ones.
You’re also invited to share your favorite healthy recipes with us. If it’s an old family recipe or something from a vintage cookbook, and you know something about the cook or the origin of the recipe, share the story. We love hearing about the grandma who made the most awesome soups or the local church lady who always brought the best dishes to the pot luck dinners. There’s nothing like adding the flavor of a story to a recipe!
Speaking of pot luck dinners–are you wondering what that is? It goes by many different names depending on where you live. Some people call them “carry-ins” and some call them “bring-a-dish”. We’ve also heard of “casserole dinners” and “church basement dinners” and “booyah feeds”. Drop us a comment below and let us know what you call them in your neighborhood–we’d like to add to our collection of terms and see what are the most popular.

The best recipes and stories could be published in The Nutrition Kitchen Recipe Book so if yours is chosen, we’ll contact you for your permission before publishing.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
