Share your healthy recipes

Every Monday, Steamboat Today publishes simple, healthy recipes in the Yampa Valley Health section through a partnership with the Colorado State University Extension office. Those who have a recipe that is easy-to-prepare and made from commonly found ingredients are encouraged to share. Forget the fussy soufflé or the dish requiring fenugreek seeds; we're looking for basic recipes that will inspire more to cook. Email healthy recipes to Karen Massey at karen.massey@colostate.edu or send them to Massey at the Routt County Extension Office, P.O. Box 772830, Steamboat Springs, CO 80477.
