Happy Spring! This is a wonderful time of year. It is Nature’s New Year, a fresh start, a rebirth, a time to clean the slate (and everything else.) If 2019 didn’t get off to a good start, now’s the time to set new intentions. The universe is listening. 🙂
For my friends in Orange County and Los Angeles, I will be returning to Roger’s Gardens this Sunday, March 24th from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm for a book signing since there were not enough books last week when I was there. Hubs is coming with me, so if you’ve always wanted to meet the mister, now’s your chance! You can also call Rogers Gardens and pre-order a book and tell them how you want me to sign it and pick it up another time.
Here’s your transition-to-spring menu for the week:
Meatless Monday: Turmeric Rice Bowls
Tuesday: Wild Halibut with Thai Coconut Sauce served with cooked rice and sautéed greens
Wednesday: Moroccan Vegetable Soup ,the chickpeas and sweet potato offer plenty of protein and fiber but if you want to sub grains (brown rice, millet, freekeh or quinoa would all work) for the cauliflower rice, you absolutely can. The easiest thing to do would be to cook the grains separately and add them at the end or to each individual bowl, otherwise you will have to adjust the liquid measurement for the soup (grains absorb liquid).
Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you:
Cook all grains
Make all dressings, sauces, marinades
Make stock for soup
Make Moroccan soup or prep all veggies for soup
marinate lamb chops
make yogurt sauce
