All in Healthy Lifestyle
Switching over to a healthier lifestyle should be fun and full of experimentation. Which I encourage in my healthy lifestyle group. If you like cooking; try and discover interesting, yummy and new ways to cook things that are good for you like vegetables. Growing up I was not a big fan of veggies but as I get older I became an advocate for fruits and veggies and try to find different ways to cook them and make them tasty. I have a yummy and nutritious butternut squash smoothie and easy peasy butternut squash soup for you guys.
You know the feeling when you go to the supermarket, and you really want a healthy snack but every time you pull off a box from the grocery-store shelf, you look at the ingredients on the snack box, and they all include sugar and/or sodium?
Pasta is in my top 5 favorite meals. My husband is always excited when I make pasta because he loves the way I make it. I know what you're wondering what's so exciting about some noodles and some sauce lol. I always try to make mine easy but full of flavor. I've been trying more healthy plant-based/vegan meals lately so why not start with my favorite. So I'm doing a two-part pasta series on my blog. A vegan-friendly quickie pasta dish and a slow simmering spaghetti and meatballs, stay tuned!
I grew up on the beautiful island of Aruba. And my grandmother, she passed away a few years ago, made the best fried fish recipe for dinner, especially during Lent. Its common to pair your fish with what we call Funchi (yellow cornmeal) in Aruba. She made her fish three ways; fried, salted and boiled. I don't know what took me so long but recently I attempted to make her fried fish recipe and it came out great. The family really enjoyed it. The crispy fried fish paired with the soft Funchi accompanied by some fried plantains makes for a delicious Caribbean inspired dinner.
