We've got a set of all new delicious meals this week. There's an awesome mix of vegetarian and animal proteins: fish, chicken, quinoa, beans, and tofu. We're also introducing some new ways to bake vegetables: crunchy and healthy kale chips on Wednesday and an Asian-inspired baked eggplant dish on Thursday. Best of all though, we're always looking for ways to make more of your time. The sauces you make on Monday and Thursday serve double duty in their respective meals. You'll also be making quinoa once and eating it twice: as a part of our veggie burger filling and as a side to our chicken dish. We know that saved time in the kitchen = a happier you.

If you've been loving this newsletter, please pass it forward to your friends and family that could also live a bit happier, simpler, smart in the kitchen. I promise you they'll thank you for it.
A little heads-up: We'll be taking two weeks off over the Thanksgiving holidays to travel to Asia (Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Singapore!). We're guessing you might be taking some time away from your regular cooking schedule over the holidays as well? You'll still get an email with a link to our favorite Thanksgiving side dishes and our archives just in case you're looking for a meal plan.
Your cooking coach, sidekick, and motivator,
