rasta pasta

My brother called this rasta pasta…I guess because it has Rastafarian colors-red (tomatoes), green (zucchini), yellow (pasta). But, there were orange carrots too, so maybe not? And yes, couscous is actually pasta, even though it looks more like rice.

The thing about healthy eating, especially as a diabetic, is this: it isn’t that hard. Making this dish was literally a 10 minutes process (excluding the roasting time on the veggies). But I would so much rather have this, real food, than something from a drive-through or something super processed. That being said, I do have a goal to try and live a little with food. Not as in, go crazy and eat all sorts of ridiculously life-threatening things.  More just to experience a little freedom. Hey if the chance comes up to try a fried snickers bar, you only live once, right?

Kind of fun stuff: check out the links for some stuff I got published!

    Heyyyy getting published! Pretty awesome!

    As for couscous … it’s not really a pasta. It’s pretty much straight-up semolina, rolled into tiny balls with a little water. But it is delightful in any case! I used to cook plain couscous every week, freshman year. Good stuff.

    Also, your links don’t work, but copy paste does. Way to go on the publications!
