Goals and Decisions

Yesterday I made an amazing vegan pasta sauce that I wanted to share with all of you.

Serves 1
1/3 of a jar of your favorite pasta sauce ( I look for no sugar added and organic)
1/4 cup of sweet yellow onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/3 cup kalamata olives, pitted and sliced in half
2 teaspoons EVOO
fresh or dried basil
salt and pepper
Add the oil into a medium sauté pan and place on medium heat. Add onion and a pinch of salt. Once the onions are soft, about 5 minutes, add garlic, olives and basil. Turn heat to medium low and cook for 2-3 minutes, making sure the garlic doesn’t burn. Then add your pasta sauce to the skillet and let simmer for 8-10 minutes. halfway through make sure to taste the sauce to see if it needs more seasoning – salt, pepper, basil, etc.

I made some whole wheat pasta then topped it with some steamed organic peas and  sauce. It was a wonderful dish! The olives give it a hearty taste and texture, while the sweet peas add a fresh pop. Yum.
Breakfast this morning was another bowl of oats.

Oats cooked in water, cinnamon, flax meal, maple syrup, banana, toasted coconut and a dollop of almond butter. Super filling and very tasty!
I even made J a small bowl of his own oats: oats, maple syrup, almond butter, cinnamon, flax meal, raisins and toasted coconut. He gobbled them up!
