Inducting a New Veggie Lovin Friend

Hello Ladies,

I write to you tonight to tell you I am hereby inducting a new member into our society. Her name is ShaylaBaylaBillingsBott but most people just call her Shayla or Shay. Shayla has been my friend ever since I had a memory. We danced together growing up and I am pretty sure you have all met her at one time or another. Em, she is the friend we went and saw perform that one night... remember? And if you haven't met her in person I know for a FACT that I have mentioned her to you.

Besides being a sensational dancer, she is a loving and conscientious mother, a caring and devoted wifey, and one of the best friends a gal could ever ask for.

I admire Shayla for her work ethic, her love and concern for her family and friends, and her constant efforts to improve herself. She is Christlike and beautiful!

I recently told Shay about Eat to Live and she read Dr. F's book "How to disease proof your child." She also read "The China Project," - so she is one step ahead of me!

Shayla, I will leave the rest of the introduction up to you- where you are food wise etc. if you want to (no pressure you're not in an audition).

I hope you will all join me in welcoming Shayla. I have added her to the list of blog authors and also to receive comments. If you don't want that Shayla let me know!

Welcome Shay! I am so glad to have just one more thing that helps me connect with you more regularly!


  1. Oh, and Shay... one thing I forgot to mention... always check the comments on posts if you make the recipe. We do a lot of suggesting and asking questions etc. in there. In fact we do a lot of communicating in those comments in general. Oh... and you may notice that we talk about non-foody things sometimes too. Welcome to the conversations!

  2. Wow, I definitely do not deserve that introduction! But I'm glad to be a part of what you gals have going on here. I have heard so much about each of you and can't wait to get to know you better. I have tried a lot of new recipes in the last 2 months, so I'll definitely post the successes here for you all to try to, and I can't wait to go through all of what you've already posted. It's so nice to have a "support group" as I am transitioning our family over to this lifestyle. I think it's incredibly important, but it feels hard when there's no one around you doing what you are doing. So, needless to say, I am sooo excited to be involved! Thanks for letting me be a part of this goodness!

  3. Welcome Shayla! And congrats on the baby on the way. ;)

    I'm certainly not an expert on any of these things, or even the best at living them.....but as to your question about kosher salt....I'll tell you we use it because it tastes way better, than if you've been using say regular iodized table salt. A more subtle gourmet flavor. It's also recommended for baking. As to whether it's any better/worse than sea salt I have no idea. I don't worry about that a lot as we try not to use salt very much at all. I omit or decrease it in most recipes and NEVER add at the table.
