Aviva Goldfarb is a family dinner expert and founder of The Six O’Clock Scramble, an online dinner planning solution for busy parents, a Today Show contributor, author of the acclaimed Six O’Clock Scramble cookbooks, and frequently appears in media such as The Katie Show, The Washington Post, O Magazine, Real Simple, Working Mother, Prevention and more.

 

Aviva is currently working on a meal planning cookbook for people with diabetes and pre-diabetes to be published by the American Diabetes Association.

 

Aviva treasures dinner time with her family but was fed up with the stress of having so little time to decide what to make and cook healthy meals that everyone would like. So she created an online family dinner planner for busy parents like her that takes the Scramble out of 6:00 with a weekly dinner plan and grocery list delivered right to their email inbox or phone.

Stir-Fried Fish with Greens

October 1, 2014

Here is a fantastic healthy Chinese recipe. I know it’s a little odd to think of fish in a stir-fry but with a very mild white fish, it can easily be interchangeable with chicken breast. I’m not even sure my son Solomon realized it wasn’t chicken. Scramble recipe tester Bobbi Woods said, “My whole family loved it. I used cod for the white fish, probably because it is a bit thicker. It still broke up quite a bit but really had a great flavor. The entire dish was eaten and there were no leftovers!!” Serve it with brown or white rice and seedless grapes. Prep + Cook Time: 20 minutes Makes 4 servings, about 1 1/2 cups [...]

Crispy Quinoa Cakes

September 30, 2014

I’ve been intrigued by quinoa cakes ever since I first devoured them at Le Pain Quotidian, a Belgian-based café and bakery that has a great selection of innovative and healthy food. This version, also inspired by a recipe from http://eatingwelllivingthin.wordpress.com/, is mild enough for picky eaters but interesting enough for adventurous eaters. If time allows, cook the quinoa up to a day in advance and refrigerate it, because it will be easier to work with when cool. Serve them with a green salad with avocado, walnuts and Parmesan cheese. [...]

This vegetarian gluten free salad has a wonderful sweetness. You might also like it topped with a little sour cream or plain yogurt. [...]
