Healthy Dinner for One: Moroccan-Spiced Cod with Cauliflower Cous Cous and Carrots

Moroccan-Spiced Cod with Cauliflower Cous Cous and Carrots

I’ve been eating really healthy (do not count those two glasses of wine Monday night plz) and I feel great. I sort of say that with an “ugh” because the sluggish feeling I had before was all thanks to cinnamon rolls and the glory of brioche bread. Probably. It’s always a bummer when you eat healthy food and you’re like, YEP they’re right!

I wish I felt fantastic when I ate all of the delicious things I love cooking and baking but I often times don’t. I mean, I don’t feel awful, awful, I just feel better when I eat healthy. I’m pretty sure I speak for all of us when I say that.

Build an Acai Bowl

This week on A Cozy Kitchen we’re getting super healthy! Yes, I know. I’m putting away the butter and sugar (for now) and giving you recipes to eat when you’re in the mood to be good.

I used to be one of those psycho people who could go hours, HOURS without eating anything in the morning. I’d totally skip breakfast, drink coffee instead (of course) but by 1pm I was a demon. A total hangry little demon.

I read a really depressing article the other day.

It was part of Joy’s Sunday round-up (I love her Sunday reads). Oh man is was depressing. This article is all about dating and being dissatisfied and feeling like there are so many options out there so why would we settle when something better might be around the corner?!

I really think this is why it can be so hard to date in big cities. A lot of people are always in search for the next best thing. That search, that need for constant stimuli, the need for something even better than what you have makes people’s attention span thisbig. Good gracious, how terrible.

I’m convinced that the fastest way to lead a miserable life is to go around constantly wishing you have more. To compare your happiness to another’s and thinking it doesn’t measure up. I know this all too well. It’s a gnawing feeling. It’s the rat race and I’ve recently realized it doesn’t just pertain to our work lives. It can seep into parts of our personal life, too.

For all my single friends, I FEEL YOU I LOVE YOU STAY STRONG! To people who are in good relationships questioning, Are they good enough?! They probably are. Let’s talk about salad. (Don’t worry, I’ll have a cheese dish soon.)

Even if I’m on a diet or trying to eat healthy, I’m always trying to find ways to incorporate carbs into my diet. I mean, I have the best intentions but it doesn’t always end well. It’s a daily struggle.

Some days I’m like, I WANNA LOOK CUTE AND BE IN SHAPE – NO BREAD! And then other days I’m like, BUT RICE AND BREAD!

It’s hard.

This is somewhat of a happy medium. It’s healthy. I don’t care what anyone says but lentils are not bad for you. These are clean flavors, there is very little fat and all of the foods below are whole foods that I think anyone’s body would feel better having eaten. THIS IS MY STORY! I’m sticking to it!
