St. Louis Rams Wellness Week

What does a cookbook have to do with an NFL football team?

A lot, when the cookbook is filled with recipes that promote better health, strength & endurance, a more stable glycemic level & lots of nutrition-boosting energy derived from lean proteins, complex carbs & the important, good fats. 

I wouldn't have guessed that I would have the opportunity to present my cookbook, Delightfully Free, to the staff & coaches' wives of the St. Louis Rams, but that is exactly what happened! I was invited to Rams Park to be a part of the Rams' Health Fair being put on by Jody in HR last week. The goal was to promote healthy eating. In the process I met lots of great people & made so many new friends.


My first day at the Health Fair I met lots of really nice Rams' employees as I offered samples of my Cafe Nuts (page 125), Crunchy Snack Mix (page 125), Hummus, both plain & peperoncini, with my Gluten-Free, Corn Free Baked Tortilla Chips (page 123) & my Black Bean Brownies (p. 135).  It was rewarding to see their enthusiasm for the recipes they were tasting. I never get tired of seeing people's responses to delicious food that is surprisingly clean, healthy & guilt free! Many happy people went home with signed copies of my cookbook.

My husband Bri (who denies he was envious of my visit), said I should have been given the game ball, which I should have then had signed extensively & given to him. Oops. But what I did get was some great memories and a tour of the Rams Camp. I will tell you about what happened in day 2 (the Lunch & Learn) & day 3 (the luncheon we threw for the coach's wives) in future posts, but here are a few photos from my first day:

 I borrowed some equipment from All-Pro Robert Quinn. When I got home, I got to see how it fits him, as he wore it on Monday night football!

Wishing you health and Joy,
