    Meghan,
    I love this! You don’t happen to have this in a rack-card type style that you sell, do you? This would be so great to hand to clients who are looking to make changes.
    Thanks for all your inspiration!

    I would add any Swiss chard, especially Rainbow, my FAV to your iceberg lettuce swaps. And I make this dairy free butter that practically tastes like the real thing. It consists of refined coconut oil, liquid sunflower lecithin and salt. It is terrific, especially dropped into hot soup! I just gave up dairy recently, but couldn’t part with that lovely mouth feel and taste of the real thing. This vegan butter has exceeded my expectations.

Let us know what you think!
