The Six O’Clock Scramble Helps Busy Families Plan Healthy Meals #Giveaway

Thr Six OClock Scramble

 

Family meals are very important. Studies show that kids that eat dinner every evening with their family do better in school.  This is a special time for families to connect and communicate.   Sometimes we get so busy, that we forget to take time for a family meal.  Aviva Goldfarb, a Today Show and Washington Post contributor and founder of the dinner planning service, The Six O’Clock Scramble, has made planning healthy meals simple and fast in her new cookbook endorsed by the American Diabetes Association, “The Six O’Clock Scramble Meal Planner: A Year of Quick, Delicious Meals to Help You Prevent and Manage Diabetes
.”

Aviva Goldfarb shares the key to making healthy meals a reality by planning several meals in advance and grocery shopping once a week with your list.  Aviva has helped thousands of people enjoy healthier home-made meals, save money and waste less.

Some of the recipes found in the book include:

 

  • Carpool Chicken with Whole Wheat Cous-cous
  • North African Shakshuka (Love Shack-shuka)
  • Light and Fluffy Spinach and Cheese Strata
  • Smoky Beans and Greens over Quick Grits
  • Grilled Trout with Fresh Herbs and Lemon
  • Spaghetti with Creamy Avocado Pesto and Roasted Tomatoes
  • Fresh Corn, Tomato and Avocado Salad with Shrimp
  • Spicy Szechuan Green Beans and Ground Turkey
  • Roasted Indian Cauliflower Tossed with Chickpeas and Cashews

The Six O’Clock Scramble is a great cook book and meal planner for not only people with diabetes, but for busy families that want to eat healthier home cooked meals too.

Aviva Goldfarb is a Today Show and Washington Post contributor, founder of the dinner planning service, The Six O’Clock Scramble (thescramble.com), and author of the cookbooks The Six O’Clock Scramble and SOS! The Six O’Clock Scramble to the Rescue (St. Martin’s Press, 2006 and 2010). Both the cookbooks and online meal-planning service have won praise and awards from reviewers at O: The Oprah Magazine, Working Mother, USA Today, Real Simple, The Washington Post, and many others.
