There are loads of great health studies out there to prove that we should keep our bodies hydrated by drinking water, yet so few of us drink enough of it every day. I recently polled several of my friends and learned that 7 out of 10 of us prefer a cup of caffeinated coffee or a diet soft drink over a glass of clean drinking water. Admittedly, I’m in that group. I love my coffee, but it doesn’t do anything beneficial for my body. Fortunately, there are low calorie drinks that keep you hydrated. Flavored drink mixes are a fast and convenient way for me to get in my water every day. Crystal Light is one of those drinks that keep you hydrated.

Indian Spiced Roasted Vegetables {Low Carb, Vegan}

Indian Spiced Roasted Vegetables recipe - cauliflower, grape tomatoes and white cannellini beans are seasoned with tumeric, sweet paprika, and cumin. A great vegetarian dish for meatless Monday or as a side with chicken or lamb!

Food blogger’s dilemma: I cooked up an incredibly delicious pan of roasted vegetables, but then I couldn’t think of what to name the recipe. Indian spiced cauliflower?  No, because there are cherry tomatoes and white beans in the recipe, too. Besides, just saying “Indian spiced” doesn’t tell you that there’s earthy tumeric, sweet paprika, and spicy cumin in the blend.  But you know what? Calling this dish Indian spiced roasted vegetables is much easier and slips off of the tongue better than “roasted cauliflower, tomatoes, and beans with incredibly yummi blend of tumeric, paprika, and cumin”. You’re with me on this, right?

Low Fat Turkey Pumpkin Pasta

This low fat turkey pumpkin pasta is seriously delicious and super easy to make. No baking required! #IHeartDreamfields ad

Making dinner for a big family can be a challenge, but so can cooking for just two people. It might sound easy, when you think about the small amount of ingredients you’ll need, but that’s not where the problem lies. The toughest part about cooking for two is scaling the ingredients down to just two servings. Think about it for a minute. Packages of ground meat at the store are usually 1 pound (16 ounces) or larger. A typical serving size of meat is usually 4-5 ounces per person. What are you supposed to do with the other 8 ounces of ground turkey? This is where meal planning for the week can fit into the picture perfectly. Have a recipe close by that uses similar ingredients and freezes well and you’ll be on your way to tackling two meals in no time. For example, when I made this low fat turkey pumpkin pasta casserole recipe, I took the remaining 8 ounces of turkey and created a batch of my baked turkey meatballs. It was super easy and convenient. href=”http://www.itsyummi.com/low-fat-turkey-pumpkin-pasta”> CLICK HERE to come over to the virtual kitchen and I’ll show you how to whip up my delicious #IHeartDreamfields recipe for Low Fat Turkey Pumpkin Pasta!
