Sneaky Blends: Supercharge Health with the Power of Purees
Want to turn your favorite comfort foods from forbidden to healthy in seconds?

In her new book, Sneaky Blends, Missy Chase Lapine offers 10 quick and easy ways to slip blends into everyday meals, including:

  • Add them to the morning omelet, stir them into soups to create creaminess without the dairy.
  • Use them to replace more than 50% of the fat and sugar in baked goods.
  • Take tuna and chicken salads to a whole new level by cutting the mayo and replacing with blends.
Missy gives you tools you need to use the same blend technique she pioneered in her kids-focused book, The Sneaky Chef, to round out your own meals with healthful, hidden nutrients tucked inside.

With recipes such as Seared Salmon with Dill Sauce using the Broccoli-Pea-Spinach Base Blend, Meaty Mushroom Bolognese using the Carrot-Sweet Potato Base Blend, and the Skinny Chocolate Cake using the Black Bean-Blueberry-Baby Kale Base Blend, Sneaky Blends is packed with delicious, simple recipes whipped up with nutrient-dense purees to create leaner, cleaner yet ridiculously tasty meals.

Listen in as Missy joins host Lisa Davis to share examples from the book and how you can get started with your own sneaky blends.
