Catherine McCord is basically super mom to three adorable kids, Kenya (9), Chloe (7) and Gemma (1). She is the creator of Weelicious, an inspiring resource for parents to see how easy it is to expose children to wholesome, delicious homemade food and author of two gorgeous cookbooks. In 2015, Catherine launched One Potato, the first organic home meal delivery kit service focused specifically on the dinnertime needs of families. Using Weelicious users' most favorite recipes as well as many new ones, the company’s mission is keeping meals delicious and simple, so that every dinner appeals to both adults and kids. One Potato sends all of the ingredients pre-prepped so that every meal gets on the table in 30 minutes or less and so kids can actually help their parents make the meals… it is the best of both worlds, organic, healthy home cooking without any of the hard work or stress, can we get a “YES, PLEASE”?!
To top it all off, One Potato provides a meal to a family in need for every box the company sells, sourcing produce and proteins from farmers dedicated to respecting the land and animals they raise, and packaging and shipping the meals in and with fully recyclable, biodegradable and/or reusable materials. So not only can you feel good about feeding your own family, you can be proud to know you are helping to feed someone else’s as well. One Potato currently deliver to all of California, Nevada and Arizona, and soon New York, with plans to expand nationwide. We have included two of Catherine’s healthy delicious recipes for you to whip up at home: And don’t miss her glow profile down below!
CATHERINE’S RECIPES ::
Coco Blue Nice Cream
2 cups frozen blueberries
3 frozen bananas
1/2 cup frozen coconut
2-4 tablespoons non-dairy milk
1. Place all ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor, and blend until smooth and creamy.
Note: Start with 2 tablespoons of milk, and add more if your Nice Cream is too thick.
salmon sheet pan dinner
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
1 large fennel bulb, sliced lengthwise into steaks
1 zucchini, cut into coins
2 lemons, halved
1 1/2 pounds salmon filet, whole or cut into filets
kosher salt, to taste
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. Place the first 5 ingredients on a sheet pan and toss with olive oil to coat and salt to taste. Distribute the vegetables around the pan in a single layer and bake for 10 minutes.
3. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and push some of the vegetables to the side to make space for the salmon fillets. Season the salmon with salt and bake for 12-15 additional minutes (depending on the thickness of your salmon fillets).
4. Turn the broiler on for 2 minutes or until the vegetables are golden.
5. Place salmon and vegetables on a plate and offer a lemon half for squeezing over fish and vegetables.

I wash my face with She Ueumura face oil and use a variety of creams and serums from True Botanicals and AnneMarie. I’ve started getting facials at HeyDay and Skin Thesis. The first time I came out of one a few months ago my husband said “wow, you look amazing”. That’s all it took for me to start going once a month or so.

what is your most valuable glow tip/secret?
Take your favorite eye lash curler (I use she uemura), take a blow dryer and warm it up (touching it to make sure it’s not too hot) and curl your eyelashes. They stay like this till you wash your face and if you put on mascara it makes it look like you’re have extentions.
