Doing things with your hands like gardening or making pasta has an almost therapeutic effect - for an hour or so you forget about everything else going on in life, plus it's easier than you think.
Whether you make your own or buy some (no judgement), definitely try this wild mushroom pasta.
COMFORT FOOD FOR THE SOUL
Because you probably don't want a cold, crunchy salad on a freezing winter night - I feel you. Turmeric chicken soup for something healthy, fried chicken for something a bit more naughty or hit up Uber Eats if you can't be bothered with cooking.
COOK IT UP
January is right around the corner, so why not indulge a little? All the rich, traditional Christmas food has left me craving something different. Pretend like it isn't winter with these fish tacos, or test your skills and have a dim sum night. Just feeling like a good old bowl of paste? This caramelized shallot one seriously delicious.
NOURISH DON’T PUNISH
I’ve definitely been enjoying that extra glass of wine and the Christmas chocolates. But rather than punishing myself, I’m flipping the script on January dieting and am going to focus on making sure I have greens on my plate at every meal. Even if that means arugula on top of my pizza. 👌🏻
EAT WITH YOUR EYES
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it can also be the most boring. Why not take a little extra time and start your day with a beautiful plate? Smoothie bowls are delicious, healthy and easy, and nothing warms your body this time of year like a turmeric latte.
Save that salad for Monday and spoil yourself to a little sweet treat. Baking can be very therapeutic, and this roundup of healthy-ish baked goods from Bon-Appetit looks mouth-wateringly tasty (blueberry pecan galette anyone??) Need a break from the kitchen? You can’t beat Rustic Pastry for plant-based tarts to go with your Sunday cappuccino.
