For those who enjoy a libation or two, choosing to abstain from alcohol for any more than a week might be a courageous thing, but a month?! [insert profanity here] After the festive season, giving up alcohol might not seem like a such a bad thing considering that you overdid it during the holiday season in all forms of treats - Eggnog, Blood Orange Mimosas, Winter Sangria ... you name it! So why give up such a good thing? For health reasons ofcourse!
This year I will be spending more time in the kitchen and sharing with you all some delicious and healthy recipes that will be quick and easy to make - for the most part! The first recipe to start off this kitchen/recipe series is Lemon Chicken on Spaghetti Squash. It is a light and nutritious meal which is fantastic, and the best part is ... it's not pasta! When you are craving some pasta, spaghetti squash is a great alternative!
Spaghetti squash can be baked, boiled, steamed, and/or microwaved. For this recipe, I baked it and used it as a pasta replacement for a healthy lemon chicken dish.
Did you know?
The new year is a time to reset - and I think we can all agree that when January 1st came - it was time to "start afresh". That's an interesting concept of time because why do we have to wait until January 1st to get real about the work we need to do to be a better version of ourselves? I pose this question to you, but I had to ask myself that same question in order to write this piece. As a result of my question, I summed it down to this: Self-improvement is never a bad thing, but it shouldn't be something that has to wait until January.
