So I’ve heard from enough people that they’d be interested in my weekly meal plans, that I’ve decided to start sharing them again. I’m starting with this one here, but I’ll be sending a weekly newsletter, available for FREE if you’d like to receive it every weekend, in time for shopping and planning for the week ahead. Just provide your information below, and you will receive next week’s meal plan via email.
I am a believer in a 5 dinner plan for the week. I have a list of typical breakfasts, lunches and snacks that I almost always eat from, and that just leaves dinners. I have found that we really only need FIVE dinner plans, leaving room for one night of leftovers and one night that is a flex night – either a date night, dinner out, dinner at a friend’s house, etc. There is almost always SOMETHING that comes up like that. So plan for 5 meals, and I think you’ll find that will be enough for the whole week!
Do some weekend meal prepping, for quick and easy breakfast, lunches and snacks that you can grab and GO!
I was in the mood for a Mediterranean salad the other night, and didn’t really feel like looking for recipes on-line, so I just made this one up! And oh MAN was it delicious! My husband and I gobbled this up and fought for the left-overs. (Slight exaggerations occur on this blog from time to time). Oh! And this is super easy, too! And I’m all about easy!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Greek Quinoa Kale Salad
Makes 8 servings
1 c. Quinoa (I used red and brown – for fun!)
2 c. water
3 c. chopped kale (I used curly leaf for this recipe)
*1/4 t. kosher salt (optional)
1 long cucumber (or 2 regular)
6-7 roma tomatoes (or whatever tomatoes you like!)
1/4 C. chopped red onion
2-3 T. chopped fresh parsley (or 1 T. dry)
*Optional add-ins: kalamata (or black olives), light feta cheese
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
2 T. red wine vinegar
juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
1-2 cloves garlic – minced
1 t. Mrs. Dash, Spike or any other all-purpose seasoning
salt & pepper (to taste)
Prepare quinoa according to package instructions. Set aside to cool. While the quinoa is cooking, place the chopped kale in a large bowl. *Sprinkle with kosher salt. IMPORTANT STEP: Massage the kale! WHAT?! Yep…I promise, it makes ALL the difference! Simply rub together, smash, toss and smash for a few minutes and the texture becomes much softer and better for salads! Chop the cucumbers, tomatoes, onion and parsley. When the quinoa is cooled, transfer to a big bowl. Add kale and chopped veggies. Whisk the dressing ingredients together and pour over everything. Toss gently. Add optional mix-ins like olives and feta cheese.
Tell me that’s not delicious!

“Here’s something you thought I’d never say . . .
Hardcore workouts aren’t for everybody. I mean, what if you just want to lose 20 pounds? Or get back some of the muscle tone you had in college. Maybe you just want to get out of bed in the morning without a backache. For that all you need is something straightforward. Fundamental. Doable.
That’s why I created the NEW P90 workout.
Whether you used to be in shape and feel fitness has now passed you by, or you’ve never worked out a day in your life, my P90 workout is your easy-to-follow way to lose substantial weight, have the energy to run and play with your kids, and feel better in everything you do—without the agony of high-intensity exercise.
P90 is the result of everything I’ve learned in 20 years.
Here’s the key . . . In as little as 25 minutes a day, P90 will help you completely change your body—not by working you harder—but by keeping it simple. Simple cardio. Simple resistance training. A simple approach to portion control. I won’t say these new workouts are easy . . . but they’re a whole lot easier to get done now. And that’s how P90 will help you finally get the body you want.”
