Day 2 with the St. Louis Rams

Before telling about my second day at Rams Park, I'd like to congratulate the Rams on showing such heart and character during a challenging season for them. Despite all their injuries this year, they have two very nice wins recently over the 49ers and an exciting 28-26 victory over the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. Congrats to them!

On my second day at Rams Park in St. Louis, I met even more very nice people. I was honored to be their speaker for the "Lunch & Learn" that week of the health fair.  Everyone enjoyed a healthy salad bar for lunch with a choice of 3 of the 8 natural, homemade salad dressings from Delightfully Free. We featured my "Buttermilk" Ranch, Balsamic Vinaigrette, & Italian Dressings (pages 102-103). It was fun to talk about the creative, surprisingly healthy substitutes used in my cookbook to re-create naughty bad-for-you dishes into clean, healthy ones :).  & I think everyone was pretty amazed when we demoed my Creamy Garlic Sauce (page 44). They all watched as Matt, our volunteer, spooned the steaming hot cauliflower, coconut milk & white beans into the blender. A minute of whirring & we had rich, delicious cream sauce which everyone sampled. Tasting is believing!!

As you might expect, everywhere you turn at Rams Park is a reminder of some of the great players and teams over the years. Here is just a small sampling of what I saw:
