My herbed ricotta and lentil penne pasta is oh so creamy and delicious! It’s a recipe that’s not only healthy and good for your gut health but also one of my favourite vegetarian meal prep recipes. It’s packed with protein, fibre and wholegrain, healthy carbs to keep you nourished and full all afternoon long. Comment below if you make it and let me know what you think!
We were originally supposed to do a trip to Europe but couldn’t find the 3-4 weeks we wanted to travel there so we chose to do a quick Hawaii trip instead (Europe is still on the list for May/June next year!). We explored 3 islands in the 13 days we were there (Kauai (5 days), Maui (2 days) and Oahu (6 days)).
This year’s adventure was to Japan. David and I were lucky enough to go with my two best friends and their husbands and enjoy everything that Japan has to offer on our 10 days there. Our friends only went for 5-7 days so we went first and saw Kyoto & Osaka then travelled back to meet them in Tokyo. We recommend seeing both Tokyo and Kyoto/Oskaka if time permits (minimum 8 days to see both we would say).
Emotional eating is when someone responds to stress or difficult feelings by eating, even when they don’t have true physical hunger. The foods that one consumes are often high in carbohydrates and calories and have low nutritional value (ie. are ultra processed foods). Emotional eating can interfere with maintaining a healthy and balanced diet/lifestyle and can lead to a poor relationship with food long term.
