Main Dishes

Meal planning doesn't have to be as hard as we make it.
What is dinner?
It's a cooked vegetable (or meat if you are still a carnivore) + whole grain + raw vegetable.
These often become lunch the next day, or go into the freezer in single serving size containers for a future quick meal.

I serve this with a large lettuce salad and pita triangles. Sometimes I make spread for the pita - hummus or avocado/garlic and some roasted kale.

This is Jimmy's favorite. When he moved to Albuquerque I made this for them when I visited. He was outside playing with a friend and said, "it smells like my Grandma's house when we used to go there for dinner on Sunday!"

Quick, easy and just as delicious the next day when heated up for lunch! I serve this with smashed cauliflower (cauliflower cooked in chicken bouillon, then smashed with a potato masher, topped with parsley and broiled in the oven) and a warmed zucchini, tomato, garlic side dish (2 zucchini, 2 tomatoes, 2 cloves of garlic and 1 T. basil warmed in a saucepan). Nutritious, Delicious and Pretty on the Plate!

So, most people may not recognize this as Shepherd Pie, but it is amazing how great this low-fat, high nutrition version tastes! I welcome your suggestions on how to replace the meat with a vegan choice and keep the great taste.
