Iâ€™m bracing myself for the many feasts and treats of the holiday season.
I decided that maybe a bit of healthy(ier) eating these few weeks leading up to Christmas would ease the guilt of my impending over-indulgences.
This week has been particularly torturous; hardly a day goes by without someone showing up with a tray or basket of goodies at the office â€“ â€˜tis the season, after all!
Iâ€™m trying to do better at home; something Iâ€™ve been doing lately is roasting vegetablesâ€¦ lots of vegetables.
Itâ€™s amazing for quick weeknight meals, especially during these cold grey nights, dinner is not only a breeze, itâ€™s healthy(ish) and delicious as well.
This whole wheat roasted vegetables pizza is an easy one to make; I use homemade whole-wheat pizza dough.
I make the dough ahead of time and divide them in portion sizes, it freezes for up to three months.
I let the dough thaw in the fridge over night, and when I get home, stretch it out, add a bit of pesto and the roasted vegetables and then bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
So this is what Iâ€™ve been eating most nights for the past few days, sometimes itâ€™s quinoa and lentils, or roasted purple potatoes or bulgur wheatâ€¦ but always with roasted veggies.
Last weekend I made a huge pot of coconut carrot soup, that with a side of roasted veggies is the ultimate comfort food; rustic and warming.
Like I said, Iâ€™m bracing myself for the many feasts or treats of the holiday season.
