I’m Shannon Traphagen, Magazine Associate Publisher, Food Writer/Cook/Reviewer, and Public Speaker. I’ve been cooking all my life, and through my work, and travel, I have learned how to take simple and complicated recipes from my favorite TV Chefs and turn them into healthier recipes that suit my lifestyle. Understanding how to spot unhealthy ingredients make a world of difference in shopping for food and cooking. My passion for food and trying to live a healthier lifestyle have led me to helping others do the same through my website www.smtraphagen.com Food for Thought. My hope is to show you how to take your favorite recipes and turn them into your own healthy creations. I'm just getting started, but as I go along, I hope to make these fun and useful for all of you! Subscribe to my channel SM Traphagen Food for Thought.
