Cookbook Author Katie Workman And Sam's Club Introduce Vitamin-Packed Meal Solutions

Stocks in this article: WMT

BENTONVILLE, Ark., Jan. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Many Americans are resolving to try healthier foods during this annual 'resolution season,' but following through can be tough. In fact, of the 45 percent of U.S. consumers who report setting a goal for the year ahead, only eight percent will be successful in achieving it.[1]  To help families highlight health and great flavor in the weekly meal menu, Sam's Club enlisted Katie Workman, mom and author of The Mom 100 Cookbook, to join the Sam's Club Simply Delicious Chef Brigade. Recommending simple, vitamin-enriched food swaps and flavorful accents sourced from Sam's Club, Workman makes healthy eating a tasty treat.

Even the pickiest of palates will embrace the fresh quality ingredients in Workman's three recipes exclusive to SamsClub.com/meals. Mix Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Mustard Vinaigrette to turn the often-snubbed green into a sought-after side. Workman's Citrus Marinated Salmon with Tangy Sauce and Sweet Potato Pie recipes are comforting, flavorful and deceptively nutritious. Members can find Workman's easy-to-follow instructions on the SamsClub.com/meals "Tips & Videos" tab or view photos and printable recipes on the "Easy Recipes" tab.

"As a mom, I'm familiar with the wrinkled noses and protests that come with serving traditionally healthy recipes," said Katie Workman . "Fish and vegetables aren't always at the top of everyone's list but with a few extra flavors you can turn these staples from 'yuck' to 'yes, please.' The key is to start with fresh, quality ingredients as the base of your meal and to be open-minded about how flavors can work together to create something delicious."

"The start of a new year brings renewed consideration for healthy eating habits and healthy spending habits," says Shawn Baldwin, senior vice president of fresh food for Sam's Club. "Sam's Club provides members with premium quality along with great savings in the grocery aisles, from staples like Daily Chef Extra Virgin Olive Oil to sustainable salmon and fresh, great-tasting produce. With the promise of a 200 percent fresh department guarantee[2], Sam's Club shoppers can realize both resolutions all year long."

Simply Delicious and Nutritious: Katie Workman's Sweet Potato Pie (RECIPE)Taste buds are in for a surprise with this sweet but vitamin-rich dessert or breakfast treat. Sweet potatoes are a nutritional powerhouse, packed with vitamins A, C and E. Ground cinnamon enhances the sweetness in this delectable dessert while also providing a dose of fiber and calcium. All ingredients listed are sourced from Sam's Club (while supplies last).
