From the moment you open this book, you will become entranced at just how easy it really is to raise healthier kids rather than those burdened with too much excess weight afflicting their bodies and health. Yet this is not a diet book, or how to raise thin and fit kids cookbook! Instead the author walks you along a path toward first accepting that your child has an overweight issue and then how to make moderate changes in your family s eating and behavioral habits with ease and memorable, affordable flavors and activities. This path is not difficult to maneuver, but it does take a lot of love, dedication and a smidgen of effort to ensure your child s health. Straying away from the author s reputed high altitude recipe formulas, this cookbook bursts with tips, hints and recipe variations to meet your family s preferences at any altitude. The pages are filled with mouth-watering delights, to replace those sugared, salty and fat infused prepackaged, previously prepared and fast food temptations. How could you resist serving you family Oodles of Noodles and Zuchles, O Cucumion Salad or a bowl of Shanky Soup instead of something that costs more and was previously prepared with excess grease, salt and/or sugar? Miss Maple A. Squash sure look pretty and she tastes so sweet and warm too, much better than that stuff that has been stuck on a can or bag for an unknown period of time. And let s not forget Homemade Chocolate Bars at a third of the price of those prepackaged. While the supportive recipes are scrumptious the author uses years of experience helping children and families overcome obstacles to guide you toward raising healthier kids without excess cost. She offers various ways to get your kids more physically active, even if they are not athletic, and how to instill the security of rules, of course with the kids input. She instructs you in adjusting serving sizes for inducing and maintaining weight loss, and overcoming the addiction of overeating just because there s more food to be devoured. She even offers a win-win response for when your kids and family members begin to whine, complain and comically threaten that they are starving. Overall moms and dads, she knows that often it is hard to ask for help, thus she guides you with an experienced hand toward avoiding raising severely overweight and obese kids with ease, flavor and affordability.

About the Author:

Raised in Philadelphia, Randi s appreciation for preparing good foods began before she could read and write. In her home and grandmothers kitchens, she would watch, learn and taste as her family members created, served and shared a fine variety of diverse foods. As she grew, she was often requested to bake for family and friends. Although her passion for good food remained strong she was drawn to the career for helping others, and began studying psychology in high school, moved to Colorado for college, and acquired graduate degrees in psychology and education. She enjoyed many years helping children and families overcome obstacles related to learning disabilities, behavioral disorders, eating disorders, emotional traumas or just common childhood confusions related to growing up healthy and wise. Unfortunately, in 1991 life tossed her an unexpected hardball, and her career with kids came to an abrupt halt due to a life threatening diagnosis. However, just as she wouldn t allow her students and clients to give in, she refused to give in to a disease; and upon advise of a kind neighbor, began baking and delivering her homemade treats locally around Evergreen, Colorado. Her customers reveled in the scrumptious flavors, and would ask if she could bake this or that, while a local postal employee dubbed her The Muffin Lady. Needless to say, her reputation for producing succulent treats grew and customers began requesting her recipes and her high altitude adjustment tips. Hence, it was another friend who suggested that she write her cookbook Baking at High Altitude; which has been honored to receive a Best First Cookbook in the World Award from Gourmand World Cookbook Awards and a 1st Place EVVY Award from Colorado Independent Publishers Association. While her customers were thrilled with her Baking cookbook, they persistently requested more recipes. So with a passion for sharing, she wrote Sharing Mountain Recipes. Both of her books continue to sell well and she consistently receives feedback from her customers and readers filled with Yums . Today, her heart for helping children and sharing delicious foods remain strong. Thus in her new cookbook Love More Feed Less, she offers support, new and affordable recipes, and positive suggestions for helping parents overcome and avoid the physical, emotional, mental and financial devastations related to childhood obesity.

Review:

The book, in one word is AMAZING. I've never read one other person who so wonderfully communicates the power of a well-prepared, home-cooked meal into the power of the heart!!!!!!!!!! CLEARLY, your love and knowledge of kids comes straight across; and the way you write to parents comes across as an intimate conversation packed with personal narratives that bring your messages 'home'; especially with the helpful hints, tips and variations that come across as if you were a close friend chatting over a cup tea. --Suzanne McGarry, Apple Epics Marketing Network
