     Transitioning to healthy, real whole foods can be overwhelming,  especially if your family says "NO" to change.

     Sue Gregg introduces you to some of the easiest, most convenient, and least expensive ways to improve the quality  and appetite appeal of the foods you serve your family.

    Nine months of attempting to impose "you ought to eat it because it is good for you" fare upon her family from healthy foods cookbooks evoked too many "yuck" responses. So she set a failed experiment aside. 

years later an idea came to her. "Isn't the fear of the unknown the biggest obstacle to change?  Why don't I take familiar, favorite recipes and begin by substituting part of the ingredients with healthier fare?" 

   Now after creating over 900 recipes using wholesome nutrient dense ingredients as whole grains instead of refined flour, honey instead of white sugar, olive oil, coconut oil, and butter instead of hydrogenated fats along with fresh wholesome fruits and vegetables, Sue Gregg is ready to let you in on her secret. 

    Tested, tasty, appetite appealing whole foods recipes with allergy and gluten free alternatives are her specialty. These recipes will help you ease your family into healthier whole foods fare.  Sue says, "
can succeed. One recipe at a time."  
Sue Gregg's nine month "health foody" experiment failure led to the discovery of a way to turn Yucks into Yums with real food.

                  The New Year Season is The Time for Soups
Cheesy Cauliflower Soup exudes a smooth creaminess even more appealing with coconut milk in place of dairy. This recipe reflects the latest in Sue's recipe experimentation.
   Rosie's Hot Chicken Chowder always satisfies those who appreciate spicy flavors to warm the stomach and the heart. When the creamed corn accidentally burned on the bottom of the pan one discerning guest said he detected a "mesquite" flavor--a compliment?
Turkey Barley Soup from the stock that the Thanksgiving Turkey afforded. Rich umami flavor from the broth creates gastronomic memories that bring pleasure not only to the stomach but the soul as well.    
    We take opportunity to share the pleasure of the season by inviting neighbors to share a soup meal in our home and by taking some freshly made soups to their homes. Great way to connect.

  One online reviewer was congratulating herself on the great price savings she discovered by purchasing used SueGreggCookbooks from and Ebay.

#10 Black Bean Chowder a universal favorite

Hospitality Tip 
When we have guests we often model a conversation starter by sharing a blessing. Then we invite guests to join in the blessing sharing, too. We've learned to be prepared for a few surprises when they share from the heart
. Sometimes we pause to thank the giver of all blessings, too. That moves the table talk to a deeper level.
