Cook More, Weigh Less

Dear LocalHarvest Community,

Many of us reach a time in our busy lives where losing a few pounds or simplifying our diet becomes a priority. Although the task can be daunting, the good news is, there is a fun and simple method for eating healthy to lose weight and enjoying your food. This month our friends at Craftsy shared with me wellness coach Allison Task's new class, "Cook More, Weigh Less". In this upbeat class you’ll find recipes and lifestyle techniques to help you achieve your natural, healthy weight without feeling deprived or bored with your meals.

Allison offers up quick and easy breakfast ideas, along with an abundance of pantry staples, vegetable and whole grain dishes, and fabulous main course recipes like slow roasted salmon, a lovely light yet rich shrimp risotto, and golden sage turkey breast. One of my favorite lessons is Allison's "Flavor Boosters", where she introduces romesco, a versatile, delicious sauce made from a base of red peppers and toasted almonds. Also included in this lesson are a number of satisfying savory dips, sauces and spreads that can be enjoyed with crudite, pasta, meats, in sandwiches as a spread - the possibilities are endless!

We all know the feeling: busy, full days often trigger eating on-the-go, and it's easy to fall into food habits that aren’t really satisfying. Allison's method of beating this common pitfall is to stock your pantry with homemade, naturally nutrient dense foods that you look forward to eating. Her recipes include prep time and ingredients that can be extended into your next day’s meal. She'll show you how to prepare simple dishes that bring out the natural, delicious flavors of vegetables - a key part of creating a satisfying, well rounded diet.

When you purchase a Craftsy class, you have lifetime access to watch whenever and wherever you like: it's your personal video library for cooking and crafting. As always, recipes are included in your class materials for printing or downloading. This month, Craftsy is offering Cook More, Weigh Less to LocalHarvest users at the special price of $24.99.
