I’d have to say, that for the most part I have loved blogging. Some days finding the time or coming up with content has been difficult, but looking back at some of my posts, really makes it all worth it!

I love that my blog is a source of motivation, and that I have been able to noire others to live happier, healthier lives.

Thanks for a great first year, I’m looking forward to what’s ahead!

Elf For Health Challenge #1 – Go Meatless!

Today is Day 1 of the Elf For Health Holiday Challenge and today’s challenge is to prepare a meatless meal.

So, for dinner tonight we had Pesto Pasta with Fresh Veggies and it was delicious! I first had this dish last summer while visiting my sister and her family at their cottage. Not only did I taste amazing, it was quick and easy to make, and it’s healthy – my kinda meal!

Interested in making it….here’s how:

Ingredients:
3/4 box whole wheat spaghettini
2 tbsp Classico pesto sauce
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon
White wine
Fresh veggies – peppers, broccoli, asparagus, snow peas, (or whatever fresh veg you like)

Cooking Instructions:
1.Heat frying pan
2. Add pesto sauce, garlic, olive oil, and a splash of white wine and the juice of 1 lemon.Mix well.
3. Add fresh veggies and cook for 5 minutes on med-high for crisp veggies
4. Pour over drained pasta in pot and heat for 2-3 minutes on low to combine it.
5. Add Parmesan or asiago cheese and salt and pepper to finish.

I love the idea of eating a least one meatless meal a week, so meatless Monday is going to be a regular thing in our house. With that, I ask…
