A weekly dinner schedule takes the guesswork out of meal planning, streamlines weekly food shopping, and expedites cooking because you’ll get skilled and efficient with these meals. Win-win all around!

Golden beets are packed with fiber and nutrients such as folate, beta-carotene, magnesium, iron, and fiber.  Beets can be eaten raw or cooked, but they add a wonderful crunch when grated raw. And while they can be coarsely chopped into a salad, their sweetness really shines when they are grated.
