Last week I spent a day at Avalon, an outdoor entertainment, dining and shopping experience that is so well planted right off the freeway that it doesn’t feel like you are a shopping center in the city. It’s like a sweet neighborhood with beautifully manicured lawns, landscaping and curved sidewalks with smiling faces and neighborly conversation it as a place we visit frequently.
Although every day for me is meatless “Monday” I like to challenge my friends and family who eat meat every day to one meatless or meat free day of the week. It just so happens that Meatless Monday has a nice, catchy ring to it. An example of what our most recent dinners are looking like and so quick and easy to pull together.
If you visit and stay for dinner which I would love it is highly probable that you will have something in a bowl. In some form or fashion balanced bowls frequently make their way to our dinner table. Could it be that they are chalk full of protein, vitamins and minerals or that they are so fun to eat. I say D – all of the above! These bowls go by many names balanced bowls, buddha bowls, pixie bowls, veggie bowls, rainbow bowls and my favorite as named by my daughter, unicorn food.
