Hello everyone. I am happy to say that with all the drama from my cancer scare I am getting back on track and getting my motivation back. It may look like I haven’t posted a blog in a while. However, I was updating my galactography blog to keep everyone up-to-date with my progress. Worrying can be very distracting when it comes to trying to be productive and create content. While I was stressing and worrying about my surgery, I found myself stress eating. I am lucky I have my favorite go-to side dish to snack on. If you don’t have time to read this post, please save it to a Pinterest board and read later.

Stress Is a Factor

Over the years I have discovered that I am a stress eater, an emotional eater, and a worry eater. I also love food and appreciate the taste of it. When you are a stress eater, it is extremely important to have a go-to side dish. A side dish that you can feel guilt free about eating. Mine is roasted vegetables. I make a whole cookie sheet full. There are times that I just eat the roasted veggies as my main meal.

Roasted Vegetables

I gather my favorites, each time a variation from the last so I don’t get bored of it. Chop them up into bite-size pieces and lay them out as a single layer on the sheet. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil or oil of your choice. Then season up the veggies with some sea salt and lemon pepper. You can use spices of your choosing. I don’t put lemon pepper on my sweet potatoes I only put sea salt. Preheat the oven for 400 degrees and then cook for 25 to 30 minutes. If you cut your sweet potato chunks too small, you will burn them. Same goes for your other veggies.

I usually wrap up the leftovers after making my plate if my daughter doesn’t steal the rest. Then I can eat the roasted veggies for breakfast the next day.

Burst of Energy

Eating my plate of roasted veggies fills me up and gives me a burst of energy to get my proofreading done. It even helps me focus on writing my blog.
