In the Kitchen with Vera: Healthy options for 2022

Author

Date

Goal setting has been part of my planning process for years and years. As a matter of fact, I have collected all of my day planners since 1982 and can tell you what day I made cheese straws for a wedding in 1986 to a speaking engagement in 2001. 

I consider many factors when determining my goal for each year, and sometimes I’m influenced by a mentor or good friend. For 2022, my GOAL is to DO GOOD

My guest on the show this week is a friend, author and ambassador of Good Deeds. Kathy Izard, of Charlotte, N.C. has written three books, has shown great leadership and kindness in her city and has touched the lives of many people. Her father coined, DREAM BIG – DO GOOD, and she has stood by those principles in great ways.

We share the DREAM theory, and I hope that I have always tried to do good, but in our meeting surrounding preparing for this show, I realized that I needed to incorporate that profoundly into my plans.

Kathy shares her story of leadership and vision, as well as a near death experience for her husband in the folds of her new book, “The Last Ordinary Hour.”

In this week’s show, you get to learn more about Kathy and also the fact that she can cook a mean Vegetable Tian.

It’s amazing how substituting flavorful ingredients can enhance a dish, making it basically unnecessary to throw in highly caloric ingredients.


I jumped in (literally) to share my delicious Oat & Nut Energy Bites to the mix, and between sticky gooey hands and the smell of fresh basil, we had an amazing time together and hope you will plan to join us.
