A Veggie Venture

Alanna Kellogg is the second-generation author of Kitchen Parade, a food and recipe column that features seasonal recipes for every-day healthful eating and occasional indulgences where Quick Supper recipes go easy on the clock, the budget, the waistline and the dishwasher. Weight Watchers love the Weight Watchers recipes too. 

Alanna is also the Veggie Evangelist at A Veggie Venture, where for an entire year, Alanna cooked a vegetable in a new way every single day and now writes Asparagus to Zucchini veggie inspiration. Weight Watchers love A Veggie Venture too, because all the zero-point, one-point and two-point recipes are collected in the Weight Watchers recipes.
