Use It Or Lose It – Day 2

Today’s blog post will be a pretty short one. I drove out to California to visit my mom today and I am pretty tired. I am happy to be out here and tomorrow I will post about being vegan on the road.

Yesterday was a pretty standard day. I went back to work after the holidays and went back to my roll of putting out fires. I work in a school and grades were due, so some drama!

For dinner last night I decided that I should use a lot of the veggies in the fridge that would go bad before I got back from California. I found a yellow pepper, purple cabbage, celery, cucumber, and arugula. I chopped all that up and dressed it with lime juice and balsamic vinegar. I added salt, pepper, basil, and garlic. I also made pasta noodles and threw it all togehter in a bowl!

I was going to make spagetti but realized we did not have any sauce or anything to make sauce so the chopped veggie pasta it was.

It was a super fast and easy mean but it tasted amazing!

This year one of the ways that I am practicing compassion is through self-compassion. I have been allowing myself to really enjoy my meals and eat until I am full. I will write a post about this more later, but I just want to say that it has been great eating and just enjoying my food!

That is all I have for today! I am going to hit the hay and hope to wake up a bit more recharged!

Thanks for reading!
