Hello, dear friends. In these confusing and uncertain times, there are bright spots. For me, I am enjoying the quality time with my family, especially meal time where we are connecting in such a special way. I am also blown away by the community that I have between my social media channels, online and in-person cooking classes. I am inspired by how resilient you are; how supportive you have been with each other; how much you are willing to share ideas, suggestions, resources. I am proud of all the healthy cooking you are doing for your families and loved ones, and how you are showing your communities that cooking healthy food is not as hard as it seems; and that it’s worth it. You are leaders in this space whether you know it or not and I am so encouraged by your words and actions. Thank you for being a positive force in my life right now.
This week I posted more of a round up of recipes categorized by food group. You can check that out here. I am still going LIVE every day at 12 pm PST on Instagram. All the live videos since March 16th are posted on my Facebook page if you want to watch them there. Stay healthy and strong. Sending you all my love. Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday: Spaghetti squash with kale and chickpeas
Tuesday: Sweet potato and black bean tacos served with slaw or salad
Wednesday: Black rice salad with edamame, simple chicken paillard or steak
Thursday: Hearty vegetable soup with kale pesto (p. 96) from my cookbook, quesadillas
Saturday brunch: Savory dutch baby pancake with spinach and gruyere
Here’s what you can do ahead if you need to:
Wash and dry all vegetables and herbs
Make salad dressings
Roast spaghetti squash
