I had a great day in Minneapolis on Thursday speaking about health and wellness at the Beauty Counter Leadership Summit and then an equally wonderful time Friday speaking at the Galveston Chamber of Commerce annual women’s conference. Of course, it’s always nice to be home and after speaking nonstop about the importance of cooking from scratch with whole, unprocessed foods, I got right to it and planned this week’s dinners:
Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday: Braised lentils with brussels sprouts and creamy cashew drizzle from my cookbook
Tuesday: Lemon kale salad and seared salmon from The Sprouted Kitchen
Wednesday: No-fail roast chicken, fennel salad with citrus, avocado and ricotta salata(I’m going to skip the cheese)
Saturday Lunch: 7-layer salad with blue cheese dressing (add in any extra salmon or roast chicken you have leftover)
Sunday: Mother’s Day! Here are some great options that would be perfect for breakfast-in-bed to all of those deserving moms!:
Pancakes: Grain-free sweet potato pancakes, fluffy whole grain lemon poppy seed ricotta pancakes, buttermilk pancakes, multigrain pancakes from my cookbook
Here’s what you can do ahead if you need to:
Make the lentils and store in the fridge, or buy pre-cooked
Wash/dry greens/lettuce and herbs
Make salad dressings and peanut dipping sauce for summer rolls
Trim tough ends of asparagus and place cut ends in a small amount of water in the fridge
Shave ricotta salata, store in airtight container in the fridge
Slice and prep veggies for summer rolls and store in the fridge (cut extra for the salad)
Here’s a link to my previous dinner planners.
