April Stitch Fix Review

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.

Chicken Bacon Avocado Roll Up

It’s (sort of) time for picnics! I just went on my first picnic of the year on Sunday and while it wasn’t exactly warm, it was tolerable to be outside for a few hours 🙂

I made extra of the Kale Walnut Pesto that I made for the Pasta the other day because I knew I wanted to use up some of the ingredients to make quesadillas!

Kale Walnut Pesto Pasta

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.

Roasted Asparagus Soup

This soup is incredibly easy, has a small amount of ingredients and has some great flavor from roasting the asparagus rather than just boiling. Plus, asparagus soup just seems “springy” to me.

Jalapeno Tuna Salad

I found jalapeno canned tuna at my farmer’s market and I immediately knew I wanted to make a tuna salad using jalapenos for crunch and nonfat Greek yogurt instead of mayo.

Lemon Thyme Salmon with Roasted Root Vegetables

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?!

Stuffed Cabbage

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!
