A zesty, comforting and energy-giving bowl of goodness...

“Lemon pasta for me is the comfort food I turn to when I’ve had a bad day. In the past we’ve all been told that eating to comfort ourselves is a ‘bad’ thing, but really, food is emotionally nourishing and that’s a gift we can use to our advantage. Eating completely without emotions attached takes away an entire component of why food is good for us. It lifts us up, it helps us bond with others, it makes us feel good. And when you feel good, you feel healthy. Having a healthier version of a comforting food in your cooking arsenal is crucial to making a balanced life feel achievable.”
