Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about how to extend Light Indulgences’ philosophy beyond just food. It’s not just about keeping your appetite satisfied, but your soul as well.
Stitch Fix is definitely an indulgence of mine that brings me immense joy as soon as I get that email that my box has shipped. I discovered this service randomly when I felt like I was in a complete fashion rut. I felt like I always bought the same items and there wasn’t anything that got me excited in my closet. It’s as if Stitch Fix knew I needed it and I randomly saw an ad for it on whatever food blog I was looking at. I was sold immediately.
I had a bunch of kale in my fridge that was not bad but it wasn’t fresh enough to make a salad with. I love making pesto when that happens. You can basically make pesto out of anything leafy and any kind of nut. Traditionally pesto had Parmesan cheese in it, but I decided to leave it out to save some calories and it honestly doesn’t need it.
I bought this huge 10 pound bag of root vegetables at the farmers market and I knew I wanted to make a sheet pan dinner with them. I’ve seen sheet pan dinners often on The Kitchen (one pan plan!) and on SkinnyTaste and have been wanting to make one. Who doesn’t like a recipe that uses hardly any dishes and where everything is ready at the same time?!
It’s St. Patty’s Day tomorrow! Time for some stuffed cabbage.
I never really thought about what exactly corned beef was, but apparently it’s just beef brisket in a brine that’s seasoned with pickling spices. I decided to use those pickling spices as the seasoning for ground chicken rather than brisket to try to save some calories in fat. Confession: the pickling spices do not help simulate the taste of corned beef, but it still makes it taste really good!
