Meg grew up in Connecticut and when she wasn’t busy pretending to be a mom, she was in the kitchen learning family recipes. She won over her husband, Alan, whom she met her freshman year at Stanford, with some very fancy homecooked meals. After working in finance and strategy for Gap and NBC-Universal, Meg returned to Stanford where she earned her MBA. Now with three kids of her own (Avery, 5; Brooks, 4 and Ryder 1), Meg’s husband doesn’t see too many of those fancy meals. But her kids eat very well! She believes good food is all it takes to make a friend, and she is grateful for all the friends she has made through her videos.

  1. I dont get why people think that getting "enough" protein should be their first priority concern. First of all the needed protein for an average woman is less than 50 g a day. So not that much at all. which means that if you eat an abundant diet you dont have to worry about your protein at all. You dont even need to eat meat, fish, dairy or eggs at all. veggies like kale, spinach and broccoli as well as grains are a great source of protein (and those are just some quick examples as ALL fruit and veggies contain protein).
    But much more important for the human body is to get enough fibre dense food which fruit an veggie do supply in great amounts!
    So throw out all this yoghurt, meat and fish and just get some fresh produce, whole wheat pasta and rice in :)

  2. Wet your hands with some olive oil instead of water before rolling the meatballs. Your hands might feel weird, but it will give the meatballs a bit of extra crisp and golden color, and prevents them from sticking!
