Here’s what’s weird to me – we’re all stuck at home all day and you would think the days would go so slowly. But just the opposite is true. The days fly by and I can’t explain it. I am still continuing my daily Instagram Lives at noon PT, although I just started to take a Sunday family day break. Honestly, these lives have been the highlight of my day. It is my social hour and I feel like I am getting to know the people in my community in a way I never could have. #SilverLining
Oh, and MY NEW BOOK CAME OUT THIS WEEK!!!! I cried. I did. I worked so hard to write a book that you would find useful and helpful, one that would make you feel like I’m in the kitchen with you. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for your responses, and when I started seeing everyone’s DM’s, Instagram and Facebook photos, emails, comments, I sat down and cried tears of joy and relief. Plus, I also re-read the dedication I wrote to my father who passed away suddenly during my last round of edits and just had a moment. It has been an emotional week and I am grateful for your support in carrying me through. Thank you! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Wednesday: Broccoli, Celery Root, and Spinach Soup from my book, I’m going to add cooked quinoa and white beans or chickpeas to make this a hearty meal.
Saturday brunch: Spinach Pizza Quesadillas with a fresh side salad using your favorite organic greens
Sunday: Chopped Grilled Vegetable Salad (I’ll see what comes in my produce box but I just did it on IG live with zucchini, green onions, eggplant, and asparagus), grilled shrimp (I do a quick spice rub on these with my fish taco seasoning)
Here’s what you can do ahead if it helps you:
Wash and all greens and vegetables
Make salad dressings
