Happy New Year one and all!  I am rounding out 2021 in Utah and hope to make it back to Manhattan Beach quickety quick.  I have lots of plans for this community in 2022 including new bootcamps, new cooking classes and more.  I appreciate each and every one of you and your interest in health, good food, cooking from scratch and living your best life.  I am here for it and humbled to be part of your journey.  Here’s to more goodness in the kitchen in the new year!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: Shirataki noodle stir fry – try this recipe. You can treat them like pasta and add whatever you want.

Tuesday: Weeknight cassoulet, roasted cabbage

Wednesday: Curried lentil, tomato and coconut soup

Thursday: Mediterranean skillet chicken and rice, add a salad or a sauteed vegetable on the side, like kale or spinach.

Friday: One Pan Pizza Broccoli in the Washington Post, by Dawn Perry, add some roasted shrimp or some meatballs if you want more protein or some toasted baguette to act like a pizza crust!

Saturday brunch: chickpea “tuna salad” served with butter lettuce leaves, sprouts and avocado

Sunday: Chicken enchiladas rojas, Mexican sauteed greens


Here’s what you can do in advance if it helps you: 


Wash greens and vegetables

Make stock

Measure spice mixture for chicken skillet and rice

Cook white beans if making from scratch

Make breadcrumb topping for cassoulet


Chop onion and carrots for cassoulet


Season chicken for skillet dish


Cook chickpeas if making from scratch


Make enchilada sauce if making from scratch
