It’s the day after Thanksgiving and you haven’t taken off your Lululemons yet, in fear of squeezing into a pair of jeans. Buttons are your enemy and spandex leggings are your friends.
Don’t fret, it’s just a little water weight gain and it’ll shed quickly, especially if you’re careful over the next few days, eating cleanly and leanly.
Whenever I need to drop a few pounds or just simply want to feel lighter and healthier after an indulgent weekend or evening, I always make the dish you see above: Baked Chicken and Kale Zucchini Pasta.
I tried a juice cleanse a few years back when they first became popular. Call me untrendy, because I couldn’t hack it. I lasted about 23 minutes and then I ate a cupcake.
There aren’t any shortcuts. You know what there are plenty of? Healthy recipes! Start Pinning, because New Year’s Resolutions are coming up and you’ll want to keep this recipe on hand for those “oh-no-I-drunk-ate-three-slices-of-pizza-last-night” moments.
Relax, Inspiralized is here. Don’t shock your body by sipping on coffee and Diet Coke for a day. Instead, make this recipe, and I guarantee that you’ll wake up feeling refreshed.
The best part of this meal? You’re eating a giant bowl of pasta that’s filling and flavorful! I want to sing on top of the mountains and tell everyone about this recipe, because it just proves that healthy eating is possible and it’s easy and tasty. The lemon helps with, ehem, digestion and really… well, regulates stuff… you know, like pH levels.
