I love this time of year. It has a change of pace that feels good. I know many of you are going to be busy even if you’re not working. But it is my wish that you will find sometime for you and do some things you really want to do.

I also hope you’ll rest and recharge your batteries. And I wish that your time with friends and family is all that you want it to be.

This is a time to eat so my gift to you is three recipes that are simple, delicious and, of course, made with ingredients that are good for the gut.

They are perfect for entertaining or use any time throughout the year.

So, enjoy.

I am filled with gratitude that I have been able to work with so many of you and get to know you. It makes me proud to be in the profession and gives me hope about the future and the wellbeing of others.

Stay strong and let’s welcome the new decade with joy and optimism.
