MAKING A DIFFERENCE
people and organizations that are changing the way we eatmore
YUM-O! empowers kids and their families to develop healthy relationships with food and cooking.
To celebrate Thanksgiving and help bring more nutritious options to the table, Rachael wrote this mashed sweet potato recipe for the President's Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition (Rach was named a Council member in 2014!) that your friends and family will love!
Share this nutritious, delicious chili with family, friends or a neighbor in need. This dollar-stretcher recipe will feed a crowd and was created by Rach to kick off the 9 Million Meals challenge!
This zesty, good-for-you recipe is perfect for a family dinner. "Pickling" the meat with citrus makes for a quicker prep time.
The launch of Yum-o! as an organization was announced on my daytime television show. I taught a hard working mom this meal. For years, she and her husband had felt disappointment in their ability to get their daughters to eat a well-balanced diet. We cooked this rollover supper together: plenty of lean meat and vegetables in a rich pasta sauce over whole grain pasta, the leftovers of which became a simple soup and a spicy healthy chili. The mom felt so empowered that she cried – then I joined in.
Good food can be good for your soul, too.
Cook this recipe one night and serve with a green salad. Use the leftover sauce to make Turkey Tomato Soup and then Turkey Vegetable Chili the third night.
Serves 4, plus makes 5-6 cups leftover sauce
