remember when i told you about the thinkfood cookbook?

i was honored to be asked to submit a recipe for a new cookbook called thinkfood, recipes for brain health.  i wrote about it last year and conducted a cookbook giveaway contest. (congratulations connie!)

Thinkfood is a cookbook sponsored and published by posit science ...the leader in brain training interactive software programs which help people think faster, focus better and remember more. (i am so signing up!!) posit science takes an integrated approach to brain health that includes brain training and now brain healthy eating...check them out, they are doing some really cool things. so the company decided to create a cookbook, Thinkfood, which features 50 brain-healthy recipes from bloggers around the globe. the cookbook has snacks, appetizers, sides and salads, main courses and desserts all featuring a "brain healthy" ingredient.

for me...the coolest part of the project is the "recipe of the week" component, which is an email campaign that runs for 50 consecutive weeks. if you sign up you get one recipe from the ThinkFood cookbook emailed to you each wednesday...and, best of all, the recipes are free!

well it is the 32nd week of the "recipe of the week" and it is my week.  they published my recipe for "beans & greens"...full of pinto beans, kale & other vegetables and a ton of spices.  the beautiful photograph from the cookbook of the finished dish is courtesy of posit science...thank you!

you can view the recipe by clicking just need to sign up (this is free) and you will receive a recipe from the book emailed to you each wednesday... you can also go back and view the ones you have missed (it is week 32 after all).  the cookbook is for sale on the site...i have a copy, it is beautiful and full of delicious recipes.

check it out and please let me know what you think of the beans and greens recipe.  i'm thinking it may be perfect for superbowl sunday...thoughts?
