What's for lunch today?

Pasta and veggies with a creamy tomato sauce

I like to make my own sauces and I came across this amazing super easy recipe (scroll to bottom) for vodka sauce without the cream! Basically you sub almond milk, nutritional yeast, cashews and white beans for cream and the result is extra protein! I added onion and garlic to this and used fresh spices. The recipe makes 6 servings and then I added baby portobello mushrooms and broccoli on top of whole wheat fusilli pasta. I made enough for lunch for the whole week and put it in separate containers in my fridge so its easy to just grab in the morning. The pasta I measured before cooking to make sure I was only eating one serving each day and whole wheat pasta has a lot of protein in it.The whole bowl is 320 calories, 14 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber.

My morning snack is cashews and my afternoon snack is shakeology mixed with fresh pineapple. Yesterday afternoon my co-worker asked me if I had any candy and I said no and that I never eat candy. He was in disbelief, maybe because the office candy bowl used to be by my desk so perhaps people see me as the source of candy. Anyway I just happened to be drinking my shakeology and said this is my candy! It's sweet and a great afternoon pick me up to fill me with energy! I'm so full after I drink it, I don't even think about snacking.
