Meatless Monday: Naan pizza (spread your favorite topping on fresh naan bread from the store and roast in the oven until ingredients are warmed and cheese is melted), green salad with Everyday Salad Dressing #1

Tuesday: Slow cooker chicken tacos served bowl-style with rice, black or pinto beans, freshly shredded cabbage, thinly sliced radish rounds and fresh avocado

Wednesday: Tuna pattiesWinter Vegetable Slaw with Ginger and Lime from Kitchen Matters mixed with quinoa and any leftover avocado.

Thursday: Happy Thanksgiving! If you’re still searching for recipes and tips, my new Thanksgiving E-Book is here

Friday: Leftovers!  Check out these recipes for Spinach and Turkey Quesadillas with Cranberry Sauce, Stuffing Egg Bake, Mashed Potato Croquettes, use this Chicken Pot Pie recipe and sub turkey for chicken and gravy for the flour/stock combo + whatever leftover vegetables are left.  Or take any recipe that uses cooked chicken and swap in cooked turkey.

Saturday brunch: Turkey Barley Soup with Lemon

Sunday: Giant salad with leftover turkey and roasted vegetables tossed with cranberry vinaigrette




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


Wash and dry all greens and veggies

Make all dressings, marinades and sauces

Make rice and quinoa


Prep slaw ingredients


Make turkey stock with your leftover turkey carcass.  (Or use chicken stock and make the soup with that.)
