Two of my absolute favorite bootcamps ARE BACK THIS WEEK!! Entertaining with Ease starts Wednesday and Plant-Based 2.0 starts Thursday! I would love to teach you everything you need to know to effortlessly have friends over as often as you want and/or advance your knowledge of plant-based eating and cooking. Both of these courses received rave reviews and I know you will learn so much. It’s fun to take my bootcamps live so you can ask me anything you want in real time and have the support of other students, but all classes are available to watch on your own time as often as you like!
May I entice you with discount codes to sweeten the deal?
Use EWE100 for $100 off the Entertaining course and YESPB2 for $100 off the Plant-Based 2.0 course. I also have payment plans available! Click the links with the codes to learn more. They’d be great Mother’s Day gifts!! Here’s your dinner planner for the week:
Meatless Monday: Roasted bell peppers with Greek tomato salad p. 158 from QTQ, naan pizza
Tuesday: Gluten-free pasta with 5-minute cherry tomato sauce and shrimp (add the shrimp to the tomatoes just as the tomatoes are done and sauté until the shrimp is cooked through – about 3-4 minutes), grilled broccolini
Wednesday is Cinco de Mayo: Here are just a few fun and delicious ideas for a cinco do mayo dinner:
