Learn how to cook many recipes from Stephanie Howard's new cookbook, "Give Them Something Better."
Stephanie Howard grew up in a small Missouri town where meat and potatoes were served at just about every meal. But after learning about the health principles and diet advocated by her new church, she decided to give something better to her family—a diet rich in whole grains and abundant in plant-based foods. The change was hard but rewarding as she observed the health and good appetites of her active children. As the years passed, she began providing cooking schools in her community. Soon after that she met Sarah Frain, who had recently decided to make the switch to a healthy lifestyle. They quickly became close friends because of their similar backgrounds and love for cooking. Both were surprised to learn that their church and the lifestyle it promoted were featured in an article in National Geographic and later in a best-selling book, The Blue Zones. They discovered that they were part of the longest living culture in America, the ONLY American Blue Zone. It turned out that they had “stumbled upon” one of the best-kept secrets ever! So they decided to share the secret in their new cookbook, Give Them Something Better. They are committed to helping families make the switch to a healthy whole-foods, plant-based diet they can stick with.
