Trisha Yearwood is nearly as well known for her cooking as she is her singing. On her Food Network show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, she shows off some of her favorite recipes, including healthy meals for her family. She graces the cover of the new issue of Woman’s Day to discuss how she and husband Garth Brooks manage a healthy routine with their busy schedule and raising three daughters.
“First of all, we’re musicians, so there’s no ‘routine,’” she told the magazine. “All those years of three girls and their activities? Even with only one still at home, there are a million things going on every night. Taylor and August are in college now, but they live nearby, and if I send out a text that says, ‘Hey, it’s veggie night,’ they’ll show up. They know it means I’m roasting all their favorite vegetables and probably serving a meat loaf, too.”
Despite their hectic lifestyle, she strongly believes in sitting down to dinner as a family. “I’m always fighting hard to make sure family meals don’t get lost in the shuffle, because cooking for the kids means I have one more dinner at home with them,” she said. “We’re all so busy these days that sometimes the family meal gets shortchanged. But food is what brings us together. These girls are growing up, and who knows where we’re all going to land? So we need to make that time now. Having all of us under one roof? That’s like heaven.”
Yearwood will join Brooks on his comeback tour, which kicks off September 4 in Chicago. Full Story >>
