Do you ever have those days where you just want to eat and eat and eat?

That’s exactly how I’d describe my day yesterday. A lazy Sunday full of eats. A lingering, overly-full belly is far from my favorite.

Later in the day, I wanted comfort food so I decided to make a big pot of veggie-filled mac n cheese.

Veggie-Filled Mac n Cheese


  • Pasta of choice (I used elbow noodles)
  • Shredded carrots
  • 1 can of tomatoes
  • Head of fresh broccoli
  • Goat cheese
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Cook and drain the pasta first. Then add the pasta back to the pot and mix in all of the ingredients. I used several slices of goat cheese and about 2 handfuls of shredded cheddar cheese. Season with red pepper flakes, garlic powder, pepper, and garlic salt. Enjoy!

And just like that, I’ve got my lunch all ready for the week!

Have a marvelous Monday!



Question of the day: How do you combat the urge to overeat?
