Today marks a new chapter in the life of DinnerDivide. We are growing. Aside from being an awesome destination for food inspiration, gardening, cooking education and more, we are beginning the journey toward a self-sustaining business. A real bona fide biz-ness!
This fall, we will be launching (with the help of a small team) a new brand. We are calling it Vie. Vie stands for “life” in French and encapsulates everything that I’m about in my approach to food, family, fitness…life as I know it.
The first phase of Vie’s birth will be the launch of our amazing Meal Planning Service. We will be selling customized meal plans complete with shopping lists, healthy weekly meal suggestions along with recipes in many different subscriptions to suit the needs of just about everyone in Charlottesville. From Student to Single to Couple to Family plans, we’ve got you covered, and for as little as $1/meal, we’re also a steal!
There’s much more to come on that later, but for now we’re setting up temporary shop at the Whole Foods Demo Desk, where we will be periodically visiting, making food and sampling it out.
Our hope is to meet any and all of you interested in our Meal Planning Service, so we’ll be as social as possible and make sure you know when we will be at the Demo Desk next. Until then, please enjoy these recipes from today’s demo.
What’s not to like? It’s healthy, easy to make and so budget friendly. In fact, a serving will cost you $3! I like to make this salad at home and serve it both for dinner and lunches throughout the week. It’s the perfect picnic food, so bring it to your next vineyard outing and share with friends on crackers or over salad. You can find the recipe here!
Cherry Beet Salad…
Inspired by my ever-amazing husband who continues to challenge me both in life and in the kitchen. Who knew that cherries & beets went so well together?? Throw in some perfectly toasted walnuts, basil and balsamic? Heaven. I love that this recipe takes no time, is also inexpensive at $2/serving and is so kid-friendly with that perfect balance of sweet & tart, soft and crunchy. And we don’t even need to begin to mention the antioxidant overload happening here! Find this recipe here.0
