What is new to this Kickstart?
Posted Monday, September 3, 2012 at 9:12 AM

I signed up for the last Kickstart and am eager for more help as I backslid bigtime. I was just curious about what was new in the Kickstart from this time and what was the same. (For example, I noticed the bio for Persia White seems to have been written a while ago, since it states she will star in a movie in 2010.)

Oh, by the way, when I clicked on the arrow in today's email to get to the Kickstart quiz, I got taken to Persia White's bio instead of today's celebrity, Alicia Silverstone celebrity message.

Hi! Some celebrity pages do not get updated until right before his or her day. Persia is Day 20. Just the same, that should have been updated with a new year or the past tense previously. We'll check in with her and see what the new information should say.

Our Kickstarts remain pretty similar each time. This go around, for example, we have a couple of new celebrities, new cooking videos, and updates from our regular celebrities, but otherwise, the same.

Hopefully, you can find some new nuggets in all of the information or can benefit from review. I know I learn something new every time, especially from the forum!

Are any of the recipes new?

New recipes with the new celebrities and in the new cooking videos. But the 21-day menu is the same as the April 2012 Kickstart.

I was thinking it would be nice if a couple of the more summery recipes and snacks were swapped out for something more autumn-y. Snacking on fresh berries isn't going to happen much longer. Also the fresh fruit compote isn't really feasible right now. I've found some other snacks online that are vegan and healthy, but I just think this would be a good change.

apples, pears, raisins and/or dried cranberries, a little cider, a little cinnamon makes a wonderful fresh fruit compote

we keep frozen strawberries and blueberries handy year round for smoothies and such (we'll go to the local pick your own place and stock up on blueberries particularly for year round use; strawberries are too much bending for me Wink )

Use squashes (butternut, acorn, etc) along with sweet potato in chili.

Given that this is a somewhat global group - folks in Australia and the UK as well as Asia, the US and Canada - it's kinda hard to figure out "seasonal" recipes. For that matter, it's hard to figure out 'seasonal' recipes within the US - are we talking New England or New Mexico or North Dakota or North Carolina? There are some areas where certain foods are year-round and other places where it's not grown locally/seasonally and is shipped in from elsewhere all the time.

That apples, raisins, and cider compote sounds awesome! I will for sure give that a try very soon. Thanks! I did freeze some berries for smoothies and to put on top of foods. Good points about Australia. I'm just thinking of little ol' me in the northern hemisphere Rolling Eyes
