Lighter Ideas for Holiday Sides!

As much as I like a traditional holiday dinner, I also love to mix things up with new flavors and presentations.  I find that new twists on old staples makes the dinner not only more interesting, but also leaves me feeling a little lighter (and not so weighed down by all of the heavy starches).  Try one of these new dishes into your repertoire this year and let me know what you think!

Additionally, our team wishes to let you know that we are here for you during the holidays!  Envisioning a holiday party without all of the stress?  An intimate dinner for you and your friends?  How about preparing some of your holiday meal ahead of time, so all you have to do is reheat and enjoy?  We can help!  Of course, we are also available for our usual chef services as well, as it’s important to eat well during all of the busy holiday bustle.

Lastly, I recently met a wonderful couple who are breaking boundaries in fitness.  Tony Montgomery and Kaylie Klitzing own Strength Union, a weightlifting gym on Pershing St in SE Portland.  They are passionate about fitness and about health.  Not only do they train serious competitors in weightlifting but also help novice lifters meet their goals as well.  They are offering a Bodybuilding Education Camp on Dec 1st, and Ready, Set, Eat! is happy to partner with them in serving their clients.  If you are curious about how weightlifting can help you get back on track with your fitness goals, check out their website or contact them directly:
