THE RECIPES
Maple Chicken with Mashed Spaghetti Squash and Almond Green Beans by @thedaleyplate

We love the idea of mashed spaghetti squash as a low-carb side but feel free to swap in potatoes or another form of winter squash.

Feedfeed Tip Adding maple syrup to the chicken before searing helps to develop a delicious and slightly caramelized crust. 
Salmon Vegetable Bowl by @cookathomemom

Stressed about making salmon at home? Roasting it is pretty much full-proof. Plus, you can customize these bowls with whatever vegetables you happen to have on hand.

Feedfeed Tip  We prefer the taste of wild salmon. This time of year your best bet is to buy the wild salmon frozen from your grocer or fishmonger.

Spicy Sausage Pasta with Rapini by @thelifejolie

Midweek comfort food at it's finest.  We love the bitter rapini (broccoli rabe) paired with the sweet and spicy tomato sauce.

Feedfeed Tip Save a little of the pasta water during the cooking process to help round out your sauce.
