Something I hear a lot... “but isn’t pasta bad for you?” Not if...
- you don’t eat it every day
- you cover it with good stuff (like broccoli, tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, chilli, oregano, nutritional yeast and nigella seeds, as pictured)
- you do enough exercise to burn off the energy
- it makes you feel good
- if you aren’t gluten intolerant... but if you are you just get a gluten free version (I’m not gluten intolerant but often enjoy brown rice pasta, it’s good to mix it up!)
Here’s some tips to help with meal planning:
1. Spend time each week looking for recipes.This may feel like an indulgence, but just let yourself do it. Browse blogs and websites for recipes that look delicious. Hang out on Tasteologie. Pile up some cookbooks and reach for the sticky notes. Get inspired!
2. Create a place to save recipes, and keep it SIMPLE. Do whatever works for you. Don't get caught up in a system, just use whatever works best and most easily. Personally, I like Pinterest because it's easy to visually browse what I've saved.
3. Ask your partner, family, and roommates what they like to eat.This might sound obvious, but it's easy to get caught up in our weeks and forget to ask our households what they would like to eat.
4. Check the weather. Again, you may say, duh, but seriously. Right now, the weather is changeable in many parts of the country. Look at the weather forecast, and try to predict if you're going to be in the mood for soup or salad.
If all of this is too much for you, you can always have a custom meal plan designed around your body, health and fitness goals by Candace at BodymetRx.
When you think of Fall foods, what comes to mind?! For me it’s 🍎 , 🎃 , and squash. I’ve already shared 🍏 and 🎃 recipes, so onto butternut squash! Butternut squash is a type of winter squash and a nutritional powerhouse, rich in many vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, C, B vitamins, and potassium. It’s creamy texture makes it a star in soups, and a great vegan alternative in dishes that call for creamy sauces such as Mac n 🧀. .
Tonight I tried @ohsheglows recipe for #vegan Mac and “cheeze” with a few modifications and it was grate (get it, cheesy I know 🤣)! I subbed the vegan butter for @chosenfoods #avooil , used less salt (1/4 tsp) and omitted the miso paste because I didn’t have it. I’m not a vegan but I’ve been making a more conscious effort to eat more #plantbased , and I think it’s fascinating when you can combine butternut squash, nutritional yeast, #dairyfree 🥛 and a few other ingredients and get a “cheesy” sauce without the 🧀! This #recipe is great for those with nut allergies, or digestive issues like IBS or diverticulitis and have to avoid nuts, because many of the vegan cheese sauces used soaked cashews as the base. I used @eatbanza penne #glutenfree#chickpea based pasta and added roasted 🥦, Brussels sprouts, and roasted butternut squash I meal prepped earlier in the week, because you can never have enough #veggies , and sprinkled it with a little more #nutritionalyeast ! .

Hoy de colación me llevé algo que en la foto no luce mucho pero estaba delicioso 🍃🥑 ensalada de kale con quinoa, aguacate y levadura nutricional.
☝️Paso 1: rocía la col rizada o kale con pam o aceite en spray (poquito), paprika, sal de mar y levadura nutricional, pon a dorar en el hornito de los chiquitos por 15 min (puedes agregar una pizca de sazonador vegetal) ☝️Paso 2: Agrega la quinoa cocía, 1/4 de aguacate en cubitos y levadura nutricional..
Les juro que el tupper no le ayuda mucho pero es muy rica y diferente por el crunchi de la col rizada doradita y las diferentes texturas 🥑
I packed lots of nutritional yeast when I moved to Stockholm because this is my #1 go-to late night snack 🙌 If you’ve had homemade popcorn w nutritional yeast before then you know...🤤 Have you tried this combo?!
