Menu Plan Monday–Winter Veggies

I can’t believe how fast the weekend has flown!  And yet, I spent much of the weekend snuggling and relaxing with my favorite furry beasts, so it was time well spent.  I’m not as quite as flexible as they are, though, so I didn’t nap in pike position.

My only post last week was on gluten free and healthy foods, which is always a great way to start the New Year.  And Nicola’s Detox January is still underway, so if you haven’t taken a peek, you’ll be delighted!

Our lovely hostess this week is Wendy of Celiacs in the House and her ingredient is winter veggies.  That’s a perfect one!  Usually I have something living this time of year, but alas, even my carrots and kale are mostly dead, and only the rosemary is alive and kicking.  There’s cilantro, kaffir lime, stevia and curry leaves inside, but not much else going on.

I decided to go with kale for the winter theme, and will be making kale pesto because, seriously, why not?  Ideally, I’ll find some way to work in sweet potatoes, too.

Onto the menu!


Chicken and broccoli in a red pepper sauce

Kalamata hummus on baby greens

Sauteed celery with turkey

Quinoa with kale pesto


Sweet fun:
I really don’t know. Vegan and sugar free Thai Iced Tea with macadamia cream is a must, but I’ll probably bake something, too. DH has been scrounging for snacks, poor dude, because I haven’t felt much like baking.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    Your “furry beasts” look an awful like my tiny furry beasts! In fact, I had to do a double take when I looked at that picture. They look adorable, I’m glad that you had some time to cuddle with them. I’ve been doing the same with mine this past week. I hope you have a great week!

  2. The furry beast on the right looks just like mine. So cute. Thanks for mentioning D-tox January! Thanks again for the great post. Inspired to make the kale pesto -looks amazing!
