She has made countless television appearances demonstrating for hosts and viewers alike how to sneak nutrition into kid’s meals at home.
In 2007, her cookbook The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals rocketed onto the New York Times Best-Seller list as parents across the country snuck hidden vegetables into breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Missy has, however, set here sights on the adults with her latest book: Sneaky Blends: Supercharge Your Health with More Than 100 Recipes Using the Power of Purees.

Sneaky Blends is filled with recipes that will transform your health and body as well as tantalize the palate! A sampling of the recipes include a Super-Greens Detox Shake, Berry Crunchy Smoothie Bowl, Cheesy Kale-Basil Souffle, Skinny Sweet Potato Donut Bites, Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, and several base blends like the Black Bean, Blueberry, and Baby Kale Base Blend; Beet Base Blend, Butternut Squash + Apple Base Blend, and Carrot + Sweet Potato Base Blend.
