Happy Thursday!

Happy Thursday from The Green Kitchen!

Wow, four back-to-back days of cooking and I think I’ll take myself out for lunch. Oh wait, I have some fabulous leftovers in the frig. Do you choose to eat out for convenience? Shouldn’t eating out be a real treat? A restaurant that makes the best ___________? A special occasion or reason to celebrate? Isn’t that how it used to be?

I think I am a fairly decent cook, else I wouldn’t have chosen to be a chef as a career. So when I am out and about and tempted to stop for fast food or something convenient, I first think about what is in my frig at home. 9 times out of 10, there is something there not only more delicious than fast food, but certainly more healthy.

It always comes down to choices. What tastes better? What’s healthier?

Choosing to eat healthier should be a no-brainer. And here at The Green Kitchen, we can help you with that.

This is just a sampling of what my clients have in their refrigerators this week: Chicken Cacciatore over Fresh Spinach and Roasted Spaghetti Squash, Pomegranate Turkey with Fresh Steamed Broccoli, Chicken and Arugula Quesadillas, Oven-Roasted Salmon with Butternut Squash Puree and Grilled Asparagus, Local Cerdito Sausage with Grilled Carrots and Steamed Peas, Grilled Boneless Pork Chops with Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes, Butternut Squash and White Bean Soup with Salad.

Why not let The Green Kitchen help you with those choices? Give us a call. We’d love to help.
