so this week is pretty insane for me–one of those where everything is happening at once.
for me, stress = tummy issues.
i’m not going to go into detail (you’re welcome) but when i’m having tummy dramz i crave carbs, carbs and more carbs. and maybe an egg sandwich every once in a while. also i’m pretty sure it’s a scientifically proven fact that stress makes you crave comfort food. on the other hand, i know continuing to eat healthy foods that agree with me will keep me functioning at my best.
SO in the interest of honoring my cravings, and giving my tummy what it wants and actually consuming a plant based item every once in a while, i concocted this dinner.
1. frozen veggies…which i did not take a picture of.
what can i say, i had just gotten home from class and i was too lazy. but i used a combo of frozen corn and whole foods’ 365 “california blend” which is cauliflower, carrots and broccoli. i mixed these two together in a bowl, covered with plastic wrap and popped them in the microwave for 4-5 minutes, added sea salt and let sit.
2. amy’s lactose free frozen mac and cheese. aka my new favorite thing. it tastes like real mac and cheese, i promise you.
i cooked it in the microwave according to package instructions and added sea salt when it was done.
3. i poured the mac and cheese on top of the veggies. and sat on the couch watching criminal minds.
4. i ate it.
does this even count as a recipe?!?
p.s. i’m adding “get better at food photography” to my long term to do list.
