Yesterday the awesome folks over at WGN Midday news invited me to be a guest on their Lunchbreak segment (if you missed it live, you can catch the replay here) and I had so much fun transforming holiday leftovers, like mashed potatoes and stuffing, into veggie-loaded snacks that kids (and adults) will go crazy for! You can get all of the “remixed” recipes here too.

FYI…I’m addicted to the mashed potato tots!

Mashed Potato Tots

They’re the perfect snack to whip up after the holidays!

Speaking of the holidays, I’ll be taking a few weeks off from writing blogs and emails, filming Nourished and updating social media to spend time some much needed downtime with my family and friends.

I won’t be back until 2017, but I couldn’t leave 2016 without wishing you and your loved ones the most wonderful holiday season and the happiest New Year!

Enjoy every moment, have so much fun, take good care of yourself and I’ll “see you” again in January.

With all my love,



P.S. If you’re still looking for a decadent and delicious sweet treat (that’s healthy too) to bring to your holiday celebration, BRING THESE!
