We're almost halfway through the year, and I've been thinking about how I'm doing on a couple of my New Year's resolutions. Eating healthier and spending more time with my family were near the top of my list. Now, I'm in no way saying this Easy Ravioli is a “healthy” dish, but it is easy! And that means that it gets me out of the kitchen and into the family room. My solution- I pair it with a green salad and veggies! It's got a nice flavor with it's cajun seasoning. Feel free to add a little extra, and kick it up a notch if you like it spicy! Plus, anything I make in my kitchen is bound to have less preservatives and added sugar than eating out so I'm counting that as not only a money saver but a healthier option too.
Someone once told me to live 80/20. 80% actual healthy good for you choices: spirituality, food, exercise, beauty, AND cleaning products. The other 20% of your life choices- well, just realize that you're a busy person. When tired and lazy win- that does not mean healthy lost! It just means it was a 20% day. And sometimes our 80/20 may look more like 60/40, but don't give up and just maybe one day we'll be 90/10!
