Fundraiser and Book Signing Will Feature Local Food Guru

Are you fed up with your family’s mealtime routine? Starved for peaceful, pleasant evenings with your kids after a hard day’s work? Hungry for some new nutritious, but delicious easy recipes? Don’t miss the local debut of Simple Food for Busy Families at Womrath’s Tenafly Book Shop, 12 Washington Street on Thursday, March 4 at 7PM.

Written by nutrition educators Jeannette Bessinger and Tracee Yablon-Brenner, AKA the Real Food Moms, this one-stop shopping resource and cookbook provides convenient cooking solutions based on fresh, healthful ingredients and sound nutritional science. Filled with quick tips for preparing wholesome meals on a workaday schedule, Simple Food For Busy Families serves up 65 versatile recipes—palate-pleasing meals, snacks, and sweets that are easy to prepare any day of the week—as well as everything parents need to know to make smart, healthy choices for themselves and their families.

As working moms, the authors have spent years developing real strategies that work in the real world, for their own families and for others. Part lifestyle-balancing guide, part innovative cooking tool, Simple Food For Busy Families shows how to make simple, healthy cooking part of everyday life.

Special guests will be Tracee Yablon-Brenner and Dr. Julie Taw, director of Englewood Hospital’s Center for Integrative Healing. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the book that evening will go to the center.
