101 Optimal Life Foods - Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes

Ok. This requires SOME words! :) YES! That is one of my GreenLiteBite recipes on a page of a BOOK! Not my book but Dave Grotto’s 101 Optimal Life Foods. I met Dave at the Quaker Weekend back in 2008 where I annoyed the crap out of him asking question after question. Some how, even after that, he agreed to be the keynote at FitBloggin’10.

Seven of my ideas are featured in the book…

I have to admit. This is giving me some CookBook Confidence! :~D

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I’m so honored to have your delicious recipes in my book, Roni. My kids love them ALL!!

    You most certainly should put together your own cookbook – I’d buy it (and of course promote it) in a heartbeat! You are awesome!

    A cookbook by you would be awesome Roni, you have so many ways you could go, healthy cooking with kids/for kids, low fat etc. You really should do it and I say do your own photography you do great with that too!
