STRAC(CIATELLA) IT TO ME!

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: OY!
*
Look, some days, I am just L-A-Z-Y.

Not just a little "couch potato" lazy.

I don't feel like writing. I don't feel like blogging.


And DARE I say, I don't feel like looking at shoes.

(GASP)

Yes, admitting it IS the hardest part.

But these are the days that ignite inspiration.

No, not the inspiration of a sloth.

The inspiration to make my fiance a hearty, healthy dinner that looks like I spent hours in the kitchen-- when, in reality, I was just being lazy.


The following recipe comes from one of those days. We all have them, and this is the lunch or dinner to make. It's delicious.

**

  • 4-6 cups of Chicken broth - I am IN LOVE with "Better Than Bouillon" Vegetarian Chicken Broth
  • Minced garlic (a tablespoon, more or less)
  • Salt and Pepper (a dash)
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat noodles (I like the twisty kind)
  • 2 Eggs (scrambled)
  • Handful of Arugula


Boil broth in a pot. Toss in a bit of garlic and pepper. Add pasta and cook through. They usually take 5-12 minutes.

Lower the heat.

In a separate bowl, crack eggs and beat them. Toss a little salt and pepper into the mix.

Then, slowly pour the egg mix into the pot and stir in with fork.

Add the washed arugula and let it wilt down, for a minute or two.

How to Plate: Spoon into a large soup bowl. Who needs style when you’re lazy?

HIP TIP - APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

Apple Cider Vinegar.

You can mix it with some olive oil to make a nice vinaigrette, but those three words (that just don't seem like they should go together) can actually change your life.

Hippocrates supposedly used it as a health tonic and American soldiers are said to use it to combat indigestion, pneumonia and scurvy.

It helps lower glucose levels in diabetes patients, and ACV is most widely known to help break down fat and lower glycemic levels while ingesting carbohydrates.


It can also cure DANDRUFF! Here is the recipe:

**


  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Water

Mix 1 part ACV with 1 part water and pour into a spray or squirt bottle. Wet your hair with water, pat down, then spray themixture all over your scalp.

Allow to sit on your head for about 40 minutes, wash out, shampoo as normal.
