Healthy Chicken and Vegetable Quesadillas

Having enjoyed pie along with all the other Thanksgiving goodies for three days running, I’m ready for a dose of brighter, lighter meals. I’m also jonesing for some ease in my cooking routine. I figure some of you might be looking for the same, so that’s what this meal plan is all about!

Red Lentil Coconut Curry Soup

Definitely one of my top soups of all time, this is both filling and incredibly nourishing. If you’ve made turkey broth from leftover bones, pull it out. There is nothing like homemade stock for making a terrific pot of soup!

Reset Button Salad

Eating this salad feels like you’re giving your insides a deep cleaning, it’s so good and crunchy. The Carrot Miso Dressing is all done in the blender and darn tasty. Make a double batch and enjoy the leftovers as a dip or spooned over cooked grains and steamed veggies.

The Perfect Omelet

If you have cooking fatigue following Thanksgiving, this is a good fix for dinner. Add a green salad tossed with a simple vinaigrette on the side and you have perfectly suitable supper.

Loaded Chicken Quesadillas with Avocado Salsa

These quesadillas are ideal for a quick dinner using up some of your leftover turkey (or shredded rotisserie chicken from the market). Pair quesadilla wedges with a plate of crunchy veggies and black beans on the side.

Oven-Baked Vegetarian Tofu Parmigiana

Oven Baked Tofu Parmesan

This is one of my family’s favorite ways to eat tofu. It’s breaded and baked until crispy and then layered with sauce and cheese. Simple stuff, really. Add steamed or roasted broccoli and dinner is done. Leftovers are tasty a day or two later.

Overnight Banana Almond Butter Oats

Overnight Oats in jars with spoons and with Banana and Almond Butter

Start your day off with a bit of breakfast self-care in the form of overnight oats. My daughter recommends topping these tasty jars with ripe persimmon, which I’m going to try this week!

Stove Top Popcorn with Sriracha and Lime

Sriracha Lime Popcorn

It feels like the season to cozy up with a movie, which calls for popcorn. I love this stove-top method, and whether you make it with the sriracha/lime combo or a butter/salt classic, you can’t go wrong.
