Weekend Special – Staying Resolute

books_coffeeAfter the hustle and bustle of holidays, are you ready for a deep breath and a cup of tea on the couch? Perhaps taking better care of yourself is on your list of resolutions. If it isn’t, maybe you’d like to consider it.

Taking care of you means a good night’s sleep, exercise to stay fit and de-stress and a healthy diet. It also means having fun with family and friends.

Here are few dishes to help you entertain and keep your resolutions.

Start with light and bright veggies. Think dips with Caponata, Roasted Red Pepper Dip or Tapenade.

At the table or by the fire, start the main event with cozy cup of soup. For a bit of spice, try my Curried Eggplant Soup or Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup.

Not sure about an all veggie diner? How about some adding some of my Roasted Salmon (skip the Beurre Blanc this time) or Roast a Chicken. Either one will be delicious with the lentils, cauliflower and greens.

Now, do you blow it all on dessert or stay strong. How about a compromise with fresh fruit and a decadent Chocolate Truffle. After all, chocolate is an antioxidant!

Have a great weekend and bon appétit!
