Yesterday was my first day back on the health train. Over the holidays I completely abandoned any sense of trying to watch what I eat. I thought it was appropriate to eat sugar everyday sometimes even at breakfast and working out...what's that? I had a reality check yesterday and gave myself a little pep talk about how that kind of behavior cannot continue into 2015. After all, I'll be 31 next month and my metabolism isn't what it used to be! I planned out meals for the week, exercised (ouch), and drank tons of citrus detox water, which will be on the blog Thursday! This morning I woke up feeling ten times better from just one day of eating fresh! Spicy roasted broccoli is one of my favorite go to healthy side dishes because it's full of nutrients, so tasty, and it might be the easiest dish to make, maybe ever.
When dinner rolls around you've been to work, possibly starting working out again, and by now it's pitch dark and the last thing you want to do is prep a big meal. You need simple, you need fresh, it needs to taste good, and you need as few ingredients as possible.
