Oh Shit! Pasta

Oh Shit! Pasta

Sometimes, we have those days where we are like "Oh shit! I don't know what to make for dinner!" 🙈

Who does this resonate with? 

For a lot of people that means going out to eat, but as a cook, I tend to keep more than enough food in the house.

If you are like that too and have had enough takeout food, take the time to see what ingredients lay around the kitchen.

You might find some yummy food laying around your freezer or a bunch of random ingredients in the fridge.

This is a great opportunity to experiment and use your creative side to make a spontaneous, impromptu meal. 😋

Winter is near in Chicago, which means lots of pizza, pasta, soups, and stews are eaten. This is when a lot of people tend to gain weight because it’s cold out, dark earlier, and with the holidays coming up, it’s easy to lose sight of a healthy diet. People start going outside less, so they aren’t getting as much physical activity. Instead, it gets to be an opportunity for exploration and creativity of cooking healthier options. The good thing is that all pizza, pasta, soups, and stews don’t have to be heavy. Why not try lightening up your pasta dish with this Easy Cheezy Vegan Zoodles?!

I can’t talk enough about how awesome the holiday weekend was! It was such a magical experience getting to be with my second family. My heart and my body are filled with joy! While all of that was lovely, I will definitely say that my eating has been a bit off since my trip. My chocolate and carb cravings have gone through the roof! But that’s okay because I know that a few bad days are not going to derail me from my lifestyle. Thankfully, I took this weekend to recharge and cook a ton because cooking delicious, healthy food brings my body and my mind joy! I feel so much lighter when I am eating better and I can feel more at ease with life.
