Recipe Inspiration

It’s the beginning of a new year and if you’re like me, you’ve set a goal of eating more healthy. Yay and ugh all at the same time! HA!

There are so many diets out there that scream no carbs, no sugar, no processed foods. While all of these diet plans have their benefits and purpose, I personally find them unsustainable. I can stick to the diet for one week max and then I I just simply can’t do it anymore and I binge eat more carbs and sugar in one sitting than you should consume in an entire week! Anyone else with me?

Like all things, consistency and moderation is where it’s at. I can attest to this because I used to do hard things – I ran long distance competitively for 10 years! And now, all these years later, I am seeing the benefit in both consistency and moderation rather than being over zealous or crazy with my running workouts! (p.s. you can follow along with my very low-key running goals and training on my Instagram bubbles)

That’s where this recipe for orzo and pan roasted vegetables stemmed from. The goal of eating more veggies and being more mindful with the amount of carbs I indulge in, rather than banning them from my life!
