Cooking with the Moms
When was the last time you attended a bridal shower or baby shower? For us, it's been a long, long time. Janice was married in 1988 and Liz tied the knot in 1992, so graduation parties are more our speed these days! But regardless of where you're at in your life, May is notorious for all sorts of celebrations...and all those celebrations require a lot of great food. On this week's show, we chat about two beautiful springtime salads, perfect for taking along to parties and celebrations. First up is our Cauliflower Farro Salad followed by a recipe for Lemony Couscous with Lots of Veggies. Tune in to hear all about them...and for our latest fitness adventures.

There is no shortage of new cookbooks on the market, but most don't address the dos and don'ts of feeding kids a healthy diet. According to Jill Castle, mother of four and a dietitian who writes the blog, Just the Right Byte, "Raising children to be healthy eaters is an 18-year process." (We couldn't agree more!) So together with Maryann Jacobsen—who founded another popular nutrition blog called Raise Healthy Eaters—she's cooked up the new book, Fearless Feeding: How to Raise Healthy Eaters from High Chair to High School. In our humble opinions, this book is the definitive guide on feeding kids. We're thrilled because Jill joins us on this week's show to share insight into mealtime challenges for moms as well as tip upon tip for being successful at the table. Tune in for invaluable advice and for two recipes from the book: a vegetarian-style Mexican Lasagna and Greek Chopped Salad.
