The Weekly Menu is a must-have gluten-free cookbook! The Weekly Menu I is a curated collection of yummy comfort foods from favorite cookbooks, the Food Network or popular food blogs. The recipes were converted into gluten-free and dairy-light versions of the original. And they simply taste delicious! Over 50+ recipes include favorites like: Chicken Andouille Gumbo Sloppy Joes White Chicken Enchiladas Oven Baked Chicken Tenders with Buffalo Sauce Spicy Turkey Meatball Sandwiches Italian Veggie Popover Pizza Teriyaki Chicken Tenders No Cheese Mini Quiches Mini Pepperoni Pizzas Carrot Cake Muffins Sweet Potato Brownies Chocolate Zucchini Muffins The Weekly Menu makes planning gluten-free dinners simple and convenient. It is organized into six weekly menu plans with kitchen tips and beautiful color pictures. Most weeknight recipes are quick and easy to prepare with simple ingredients in the pantry, fresh produce and lean protein. Once a week, you will find a vegetarian or meatless dish as well. There are delish breakfast muffins and cookies, as well as finger foods or appetizers that are perfect for entertaining diet-restricted friends. Since most of the original recipes made enough food for 4-8 people, portions were reduced to an appropriate meal for two adults in order to save money and reduce food waste. If you have a larger family, simply double the ingredients or check out the link to the original recipes (it’s much easier to multiply than divide). Bon Appétit!

Motivation durch Sinn Jeder dritte Arbeitnehmer hat innerlich bereits gekündigt: Konflikte, Frust und mangelnde Motivation sind die Folge. Die Ursachen sind nicht nur im falschen Führungsverhalten des Top-Managements zu suchen, sondern auch bei jedem Einzelnen: Das Fehlen von Sinn führt zu Leistungseinbußen, psychosomatischen Beschwerden und allgemeiner Unzufriedenheit. Viktor Frankl, der Begründer der Dritten Wiener Richtung der Psychotherapie bzw. Logotherapie stellte die Suche nach dem Sinn in den Mittelpunkt seines Lebenswerkes. Alex Pattakos überträgt Frankls Gedankengut auf die Arbeitswelt und lädt den Leser ein, ihm auf der Suche nach dem Sinn zu folgen. Er zeigt, wie es gelingt, nicht mehr Gefangener negativer Gedanken zu sein, sondern eingefahrene Muster zu überdenken, eigene Widerstände gegen Veränderungen zu überwinden und damit die Tür zu einem tieferen Sinn aufzustoßen. Die zweite überarbeitet Auflage enthält einige neue Fallbeispiele. Außerdem wurde ein weiteres Kapitel hinzugefügt: „The Meaning Difference“, das Forschungsergebnisse darüber beinhaltet, wie sehr das Vorhandensein von Sinn das Leben von Menschen verbessern kann.
