Happy Labor Day Weekend!  I hope this weekend will be an easy transition to fall.  I will be back to making early morning breakfasts, school lunches and trying to keep everyone’s immune systems strong (we’ll start popping Wellness Formula daily.)  I also get back to teaching regular classes next week.  My online classes are not interrupted during the summer.  I like to think of Labor Day almost like New Years Day – a time to start fresh, with a clean slate, and optimism for the year ahead.  Or at least until June when summer starts again 😉

Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Labor Day:  Charred corn salad with tomatoes and avocados, Farro with golden beets, cucumber and feta, Grilled vegetable platter with romesco or basil vinaigrette, + any protein you like such as Tasty Turkey Burgers, Grilled Shrimp from my book, Grilled Herbed Lemon Chicken with Mint Drizzle

Tuesday: Grilled chicken, tomato, and artichoke skewers from How Sweet Eats, Mediterranean quinoa salad

Wednesday: Broiled fillet of sole with lemon and white wine from my book, spaghetti squash with herbs and pecorino, green salad with everyday salad dressing #1

Thursday: Smoked braised lentils with or without turkey sausages, roasted broccolini – use this method

Friday: Slow cooker BBQ chicken sandwiches, coleslaw, and sweet potato fries

Saturday Lunch: Kale, mushroom and brown rice bake  (or use whatever leftover cooked vegetables you have)

Sunday: Shrimp with white beans and tomatoes, rice, and grilled zucchini


Here’s what you can do ahead if you need to:


Wash vegetables and herbs

Cook farro and beets

Make salad dressings

Make romesco or basil vinaigrette


Marinate chicken for skewers
