I know that it was probably an autocorrect, Phoenixmyst, but I LOVE that you have "opinions" in your spaghetti sauce!

I find opinions to be the best part of shared meals!

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.

Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.

Get checked!

Spaghetti is still my all time favorite. Use veggie/whole wheat pasta, add green peppers, opinions maybe a little broccoli and cauliflower to the sauce with some vegan sausage and I love it

My lazy "go to" dinner is two Quorn naked chick'n cutlets (my husband eats regular chicken) roasted or grilled, a heaping serving of sauteed or steamed veggies, and an easy pasta or rice packet side.

If I'm feeling lazy and uninspired, then I generally throw some chicken breasts or pork loin chops and a pile of whatever veggies are on hand (asparagus, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, pearl onions, cubed potatoes, cubed sweet potatoes) in to the oven to roast. I just give the veggies a mist of olive oil before putting them in, but sometimes sprinkle a Tbsp or two of parmesan or balsamic vinegar on before eating.

If I'm slightly more enthusiastic, then my go-to is a stir-fry. I am apparently physically incapable of making a stir-fry of a reasonable size for just two people, so I get the bonus of having the leftovers all ready for the next night (not to mention lunch for the next couple of days).

If I have more time to cook, then I tend to make casseroles, stews, or strata, which end up as dinner for the night and frozen portions for future nights when cooking just isn't going to happen. I also make my own meat/tomato sauce on days when I have hours to have it bubbling on the stove - there are always portions in the freezer that can be heated and put over veggies or pasta if I need something quick and tasty.

In the summer, almost always a salad. Either a cold pasta salad with lots of veggies and protein or a normal salad with lots of veggies and protein.

In the winter I'll make a casserole with a base of either pasta sauce or salsa and put veggies in there. Stirfrys are also really good (and quick)

When I'm blanking on ideas, I usually go for a good sized simple salad (spinach, tomatoes, avo, and a little dressing) with an appropriate sized protein (usually salmon, chicken, or pork chops depending on what I'm in the mood for and how many calories I have left). Doesn't require much effort for cooking, and fills me up and is tasty.

Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.
