The latest happenings at Nutritioulicious, plus this week’s Link Love and Menu Plan Monday!
Happy Monday and October everyone! And to all who celebrate Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, Shana Tova u’Metukah – a good and sweet year!
In case you missed me last week, I was out west in Aspen as a guest and paid speaker for the National Cattleman’s Beef Association’s sponsored Live Well Conference where I joined my RDN colleagues and fellow healthy food bloggers to learn the latest research on beef nutrition, cuts of beef and the science of flavor as it pertains to beef. I also presented to the group on – what else – menu planning and meal planning! I loved sharing my top tips, including how to build beef into your family’s meals. Stay tuned for some of that info coming soon to the blog and hopefully some Facebook Live videos too!
It’s been pretty hectic since I returned home as I have been cooking up a storm of our Rosh Hashana celebration. If you’ve visited me on Facebook and Instagram you’ve probably seen some of what I’ve been cooking! And since I made so much for the dinner I hosted last night, we’re having leftovers tonight (just check out the menu below) and maybe even for lunch Tuesday! This week’s menu doesn’t include the girls’ lunch for Monday and Tuesday since they are off from school, but we resume packing on Wednesday.
Before we get to some Link Love from the past two weeks and this week’s Menu Plan Monday, I also wanted to mention that if you haven’t signed up yet for my newsletter, don’t forget to do so here. In last week’s newsletter I shared some of my favorite recipes using all our fresh-picked apples from last weekend’s apple picking adventures.
⇒ I mean who doesn’t need this?! I sure do! So appreciate Liz & Janice including my Orange Maple Salmon! And don’t forget about my school lunch ideas – between the two posts you’ll be covered for feeding the kids during the busy weeks ahead!
⇒ I love Stephanie’s seasonal produce and recipe guides. In addition to providing you with recipes to make with the seasonal fruits and vegetables, Steph also includes flavor pairings and cooking techniques for each ingredient.
⇒ As soon as I saw this recipe I knew I was making it. And I did. And it was delicious. My husband didn’t even believe me when I told him what was in it! For awhile I had been wanting to make black bean brownies and bake with avocado, and this recipe killed two birds with one stone and with 100% success!
