Dinner Planner: Week of September 18th 2017

Dinner Planner: Week of September 18th 2017

Football season has started which is very exciting!  And coincidentally so has soccer season and for some reason Mr. Picky’s soccer games are often scheduled at the same time as the game I want to watch LOL!

Also, I have received a lot of emails from people in Florida who are still without power who want to sign up for the Clean Eating Batch Cooking online course I developed.  Week 1 started on September 11th and the cart was going to close this weekend, but Clean Eating will keep the cart open one more week through September 24!  Click here for the 7-week version and here for the 6-week Vegetarian Times version.  And, Week 1 will be available even if you have missed it.  Hoping all of you that have been affected by Hurricane Harvey or Irma are back on your feet as soon as possible!

Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Monday: Lentil and grilled eggplant salad

Tuesday: Chicken adobo, turmeric rice with peas, sautéed zucchini

Wednesday: Garlic shrimp from Food & Wine, cauliflower-rice, parmesan peppers

Thursday: Lemony chickpea soup, avocado or tomato toast

Friday: smoky braised lentils with turkey sausage, sautéed cabbage

Saturday lunch: Greek pasta salad

Sunday: Slow cooker chicken tacos with toppings


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


Cook the lentils ahead of time and re-heat before adding dressing

Make the dressing for the lentil salad

Rice your cauliflower

Wash herbs

Cook chickpeas from scratch if you don’t want to use canned, see this post for how to cook beans from scratch

Make chicken or vegetable stock


Marinate the chicken in the evening

Prep zucchini

Prep peppers


Prep cabbage

Make dressing for pasta salad, refrigerate
