Real Food Menu for Week of 9.28.2020

This week’s chocolate chip cookie dough dip might be one of my shining moments in real food trickery. You see, Mr. Arthur doesn’t care for chickpeas. Or so he thought. As it turns out, if you whirl them up in the food processor with a few accompaniments and a zhoosh of stevia sweetened chocolate chips, they become his new favorite food group!

Here’s our weekly nosh:

Mark’s Breakfast:
Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal – Few things are more comforting than the flavor combo of apples and cinnamon. If you’re in the ‘Noke and looking for star anise, Fresh Market has it.

Mark’s Lunch:
Mediterranean Green Lentil Soup – My late mother-in-law was one heck of a cook. Everything that came out of her kitchen was amazing, not the least of which was her lentil soup. This veggie-packed version comes close. We love a warm bowl of this nourishing goodness.


Mediterranean Chickpea Quinoa Bowls – New Recipe! Here’s another solid keeper for weekly meal prep. Make extra red pepper sauce, it’s so good!

Keto White Chicken Chili – We’re not keto, so I leave out the cream cheese and substitute coconut milk for the heavy cream. It’s still creamy and delicious!

Cod with Tomato Cream Sauce – New Recipe! Every now and then we take a break from salmon and sample a whitefish. We like this with a side of brown rice.

Keto Meatballs and Sauce with Zoodles – This one is so tasty! The cream in the sauce cuts the acidity of the tomatoes. I’m loving the wide zoodles, To make them, just slice a little off the side of the zucchini so that it lays flat on the cutting board. Use a vegetable peeler to slice thin, wide noodles. I saute them in coconut oil for a few minutes, just until tender. Very few things in life are worse than a mushy zoodle.

We’re bidding a fond farewell to our nightly slice of watermelon, and welcoming other seasonal offerings. I’m excited to see dragon fruit back on the shelves in the grocery store! It tastes somewhat like a cross between a pear and an apple. Slice it, peel back the magenta skin and eat the white flesh.

No Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip – This is a favorite recipe and very kid friendly! Take this to your next party, but don’t tell your friends it’s good for them. They’ll think it’s conventional cookie dough dip. Your secret is safe with me!

Have a fantastic week, everyone!
