BLEND (blend) NOUN: a combination of different tastes made from superfoods, like blueberries, kale, and broccoli that are packed with disease fighting phytonutrients, fiber, and low in calories. When the New York Times bestselling Sneaky Chef took off, Missy Chase Lapine knew parents were finally getting their kids to eat healthy with hidden veggie purees (a.k.a. Blends). What surprised her, though, was that those same parents were using Blends in their own recipes and feeling more energized. Taking her cue from those parents, Missy is on a mission with Sneaky Blends to show how anyone can eat healthy without sacrificing taste. Starting off with fifteen signature Base Blends, such as Butternut Squash-Apple, Black Bean-Blueberry-Baby Kale, and Carrot-Sweet Potato, Missy shows you how these nutrient packed blends can kick start your healthy lifestyle. When these blends are added to your favorite recipes or one of Missy’s delicious recipes like Zucchini Pasta Piccata, Chai Tea Smoothie Bowl, Cheesy Kale-Basil Soufflé, Meaty Mushroom Bolognese, or 45-Calorie Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, they instantly become healthy. This is healthy eating without deprivation! Missy also has created the Blends Cleanse™, a 3-day Body Reboot that you can tailor to your own lifestyle, giving you a diet do-over and setting you on the path to weight loss. Full of gorgeous color photos and tips and tricks to start blending, this is the only cookbook you will need to detox and transform your overall health while still enjoying delicious meals.

I have a real problem with this book. Promoted as a book in "healthy eating", EVERY single recipe, recipe introduction and the main book introduction talked about weight loss as the point of book.. "These recipes will take weight off, and keep it off!" The front notes about the "three day cleanse" bangs on and on about the cleanse taking weight off. One quote noted happily "This cleanse got that last five pounds off!" The author goes on about how some of the blends were so low calorie that she had to "add some carbs" to make them healthy. The author has a total confusion between healthy eating and weight loss. They are not the same! This is a very UN-healthy viewpoint. If the author wanted to write a weight-loss diet book, she should have been honest and labeled it as such.
