I grew up always hearing the argument of whether it was “sauce” or “gravy” – One being without meat (sauce), and the other with meat (gravy). As an adult, I have slowly been moving toward being 100% vegetarian. Don’t get me wrong, I do love a good cheeseburger, but it is healthier to cut most meat from your diet. I also find it hard to find fresh quality meats anymore. It’s a shame really. This week I wanted to feature what could be a hearty sauce to go along with your favorite kind of pasta, or eaten alone as an entree.
Now that we are getting back into the swing of things after a three day weekend, I’m sure some of us are feeling that post BBQ bloat. All the burgers, hot dogs, potato salad, booze, desserts, and steak in some cases made for a tasty weekend for most of us. What are we supposed to do when that indigestion creeps in, and we feel a bit sick this week? A healthy alternative to get you back on track is increasing your vegetable intake. There are numerous benefits to eating veggies healthily (not loaded with butter & salt). I know the trend is to make some kind of shake with the trendy veggie (kale at the moment) but I invite you to actually cook your vegetables, season them then eat them. You may end up enjoying them more.
