Recently, we unveiled a redesigned SparkRecipes.com to make it even easier for you to find and share healthful meal ideas. We've also been hard at work on a few more improvements to the site that we think you'll love.
One of the biggest problems people face when they embark on a journey to healthy living is cooking. Whether you never learned how to cook or just don't know how to lighten up your favorite foods, many people fear the kitchen.
With SparkRecipes.com, you can overcome that fear and cook healthful, affordable meals at home.
Introducing "Healthy Home Cooking with Chef Meg"
We have joined forces with Chef Meg Galvin of the Midwest Culinary Institute. (Visit her "Healthy Home Cooking with Chef Meg" page here
!) Chef Meg is a World Master Chef and full-time chef instructor; a wife and mother of three preteen boys; and an avid runner. With a passion for healthy living that was sparked during childhood, Chef Meg knows how important it is to find time for fitness and healthful meals with her family.
Chef Meg grew up on a farm in Kentucky, eating food that went straight from the field or the pasture to the table. Today, she continues to provide fresh and healthy meals for her own family--and now yours, too.
She took some of your
recipes and gave them a makeover and shared plenty of original, healthful recipes, too. To help you feel more comfortable in the kitchen, Chef Meg did a handful of how-to videos, with plenty more to come. She'll teach you basic cooking techniques and show you how to make healthful meals for your family.
