Dietitian's Tip: The half your plate message applies to a power bowl, soup, stir fry, curry and casserole. Load on the veggies and you'll be healthier for it!

*Kids Cook: I love the idea of putting school-age kids in charge of keeping the fridge stocked with homemade salad dressing.
  1. Follow our 3 simple steps:
  2. (ingredients are in bold)

  3. Step One
  4. Make basil vinaigrette. In bowl or jar, mix together 2 tbsp canola oil, 1 tbsp red wine vinegar, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, ½ tsp dried basil and pinch of salt and pepper. You can double or even triple this recipe to make more, if you wish.

  5. Step Two
  6. In a medium-size bowl, combine 2 cups of your favourite salad greens and some sliced cherry tomatoes, about 1 cup EACH shredded spaghetti squash and canned chickpeas (rinsed).

  7. Step Three
  8. Top with a few slices of avocado and dig in!
Lunch from leftovers
• Try this in a mason jar for a meal on the go. Start with basil vinaigrette on the bottom and layer up ingredients ending with salad greens. Give it all a good shake when you are ready to dig in.
