Download a grocery list & get cooking faster than ever
I was just thinking the other day it would be nice to have someone other than me create my family meal plans and grocery list. Having someone do the shopping and put it away would be nice. Maybe they will prepare, serve and clean-up, too? Hmmm! Sounds like a plan. But, where to find such assistance?
Book Review: The Six O’Clock Scramble Meal Planner, Quick, Healthy, and Delicious Dinner Recipes for Busy Families
Author: Aviva Goldfarb
Then I read Aviva Goldfarb’s new book, The Six O’Clock Scramble Meal Planner and at least some of my wishes came true. From the title I thought this could be the end-all collection of ways to use eggs. But, this scramble is the verb, not the noun. It’s that ofttimes frantic dance we home cooks do most everyday to feed ourselves and families especially if we also spend time generating income, taking care of others, exercising volunteering, studying — all the things we do to thrive and survive.
Aviva has creatively organized recipes with shopping lists by season and includes a “Flavor Booster” suggestion with “Tips,” plus each main dish includes a side-dish recommendation, nutritional information and a photo of the completed dish. Everything you need plus easy instructions with “Do Ahead or Delegate” suggestions (I like the delegate part!). All-in-all you have in this one book a collection of quick, delicious weeknight meals with the added bonus that these recipes give you meals to “help prevent and manage Diabetes.” Win-Win! I’m guessing you’ll be having your favorites again on the weekends, and did I mention the shopping lists can be printed from the internet? Pretty cool, right?
Get these healthy recipes for yourself or gift to your friends, especially those who are concerned with the potential or reality of Diabetes. Think “Spaghetti with Creamy Avocado Pesto and Roasted Tomatoes” or “Roasted Indian Cauliflower Tossed with Chickpeas and Cashews” — YUM! These are easy recipes and with the shopping lists and website resources it’s easy to get started cooking at home. For just over $20 you get way more help than a one-time visit to that drive-thru.
