Creamy Gnocchi with Mushroom, Bacon & Peas

Another quick and easy weekday dinner to share with you, gnocchi with a few ingredients and a creamy sauce. Gnocchi if you aren’t familiar with it are small potato dumplings traditionally made with mashed potato and flour. You could always make your own gnocchi and freeze them for a quick homemade meal mid- week or easy entertaining on weekends. We all need shortcuts in our lives from time to time so store bought are perfectly fine too.

Creamy Braised Lentils with Mushrooms and Kalettes

After a huge weekend, actually I should say week of party celebrations. It was nice to get back to healthy eating and to kick off the week with a meatless Monday dish of braised lentils was just the thing I needed.

As I become more in tuned with my body and health over the past few years, I honestly do enjoy meat less meals more and more. I cannot say I am a totally converted vegetarian, though I have cautiously reduced my intake on red meat. My digestive system and over all energy has notably changed for the better.
