For January, my “What Do I Eat Today" menu starts with warm lemon water, then Green Drink. For breakfast, Warm Cinnamon Quinoa, a hearty treat for cold weather. For lunch, my Mediterranean Stew, and for dinner, Chicken Pot Pie, a gluten-free recipe with a vegan option, demonstrated in this month's Chef V Cooking School video.
I have lemon water in the morning and then I wait until I'm hungry to have my Green Drink.
For Breakfast – Warm Cinnamon Quinoa
For breakfast, Warm Cinnamon Quinoa fills the belly and tastes so good on a cold winter morning. I use quinoa, my own recipe for raw almond milk, raw coconut nectar, and ground cinnamon. You can top it with berries and/or nuts.
For Lunch – Mediterranean Butternut Squash + Carrot Stew with Quinoa
For lunch this month you have my Mediterranean stew, made with mellow spices for a flavorful and healthy mid-day meal.
This stew can be prepared a day ahead. It's great to take to work or enjoy for dinner the next day, or for a warm and healthy meal for the kids to come home to and easily reheat.

Dinner – Chef V's Chicken Pot Pie
For dinner, you are having my Chicken Pot Pie, made with healthier ingredients that will taste great and make you feel good. There is a vegan option as well!
This recipe is featured in my Cooking series on YouTube and you can watch me prepare the recipe here.
