Menu Plan Monday – October 15

When clients ask me how they can eat healthier, one of the first tips I give them is to plan ahead. The biggest challenges to heathy eating tend to come when we’re busy and don’t have time to cook or we just grab whatever is most convenient, which isn’t always the best option for our health and waistline. Over the past few months I have come to take my own advice. Planning a weekly menu is the most important task I do in order to put healthy dinners on the table most nights of the week.

Poached Salmon Revisited {Recipe}

Rosh Hashana Recap For Foodies

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashana. In the past, I have been a guest at Rosh Hashana dinners, but this year I hosted the second night for some friends and family. My family and I moved into our new house just a few days before the holiday, so it was my first time cooking in my brand new kitchen, which I love! Traditional foods for Rosh Hashana include apples, pomegranates, honey, and of course brisket. I wanted to change things up a little bit and not just stick with the typica… read more »
