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. 😋

I love outdoing myself every time I create a new recipe. I have been preparing a lot of vegan cheeses lately. This time, I found something a bit different. I am so proud of myself for meal planning again. I’ve been writing weekly meal logs and holding myself accountable for my meals. I’m really excited to be doing this as well in my upcoming challenge I’m holding in the next upcoming weeks. I’ve found all these awesome meals over the past few years and I am finally using them. Now, I’m bringing them to life!

Winter is near in Chicago, which means lots of pizza, pasta, soups, and stews are eaten.

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?!
