There are times in life when we just need a big. plate. of pasta. Tonight was clearly one of those times.
I sauteed 1/2 a clove of garlic in some olive oil, added 4 oz chicken, last of the eggplant and summer squash, and 2 oz cooked pasta (Barilla whole wheat thin spaghetti, quite delish). Seasoned with crushed red pepper flakes!
When I was a little girl I used to vow that when I was allowed to eat whatever I wanted, I’d live on spaghetti with butter and cheese. Since my discovery of the concepts of *fiber* and *protein*, I haven’t been living it up quiiiite the way I imagined, but still. This was damn good.
If lunch looks familiar, it’s cause I had almost *exactly* the same thing the other day, but it was just soooooooo good. I did sub peach for apple, ooh, wild me.
Dessert! Another mini I stole from the gym.
The other food highlight of my day was definitely the first PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE of the season! I had it post-gym, with soy, thank you ma’am. It was heaven. It’s too thin and bitter with skim, 2% is narsty, soy is PERFECT!
