Laura and her quick dinner idea

When queried about her quick family dinner idea for a weeknight, Laura answered:

I prep ahead a bunch of basic ingredients. I always have chicken in my fridge, rice or some kind of grain and vegetables so I can throw together something quickly. I’m more of a flexitarian, there’s time where we’re fully plant-based and there’s other times where we’re meat eaters.”

And she added:

“It depends on the season and what’s at the farmer’s market. Now that we’re going into winter, we have a lot of heavier ingredients like squashes and more protein whereas in the summer we’re more plant-based. Finding really great plant-based cheese is not easy, so when I come across it, I’m very happy about it. I recently found out that my daughter is sensitive to dairy, and not being able to use cheese in toddler’s meals is not easy. So using something like Vitalite is great.”

Laura’s favorite plant based protein and eating philosophy

Laura loves chickpeas in plant based protein because they are so versatile. One can eat whole or mashed or use it as a spread. And they are hearty.

In kitchen appliances, her staples are 4-Piece Tool Set, the cutting board, and her Santoku Knife. The cutting board is her own patent. The patented cutting board comes with an attached bag to put the cut pieces in.

Laura prefers advance meal preparing due to her work load at home and on sets. She adds:

The most important thing is getting delicious homemade food on the table quicker so that I have more time to spend with my family. And that to me is eating well, it’s about getting the food on the table, sitting down to eat with my family and enjoying it.”
