Once again, it’s time for Menu Monday here on Life With Dee. Don’t these weeks roll around quickly? You may notice a bit of a change in our menus from this point forward. Of course, there will be more of a focus on the fresh fruits and vegetables coming into season. I love farmers market season! But beyond that we will be trying to eat more of a Mediterranean-style diet.
David had a bit of a health scare and his cardiologist has recommended some dietary changes. My research indicates that a Mediterranean diet is an excellent choice and it’s something we can live with. There’s no point in adopting a strict diet and then giving it all up in frustration. Better to choose a healthy, yet tasty and livable eating plan, don’t you think?

WHAT’S COOKING AT YOUR HOUSE THIS WEEK?
If you have any recipes that are compatible with a Mediterranean diet would you share them with me, please? I’m especially interested in fish or seafood recipes that might appeal to someone who isn’t a big fan of fish (that would be David – I love seafood!).
If you’re looking for some resources to help you in the kitchen, I highly recommend the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle. I buy it myself every year. This year’s bundle contains 129 products worth $3,687.47 all for only $29.97. There are resources covering everything from cleaning, to budgeting, to home organization, to intentional living, to self care and more.
Here are some of the kitchen and recipe resources I’m most excited about:
