Starting things out, I find a great way to begin a big meal is with a soup. I make a similar version for my clients pretty regularly and this soup is a nice little nod to this season's flavors, not to mention, it's easy to make.

Moving on to a healthy little side dish, this Pomegranate Quinoa Salad gets its texture from all of its different components. The quinoa has a naturally satisfying little "pop" to it and the Pomegranate seeds only echo that, as well as add a sweet and tangy note to the dish.
