Comfort Food Sunday!!

Sometimes I just want to curl up and eat a hot bowl of something comforting, and this rainy Sunday  calls for some plant based comfort food to fill my belly to the brim with warmth and goodness .  

I need to eat lots of veggies though, I just don’t feel good if I don’t eat a pile of veggies every day…and today will not be an exception!

The answer….Veggie Casserole!! With a side salad of greens (romaine, shredded  kale, and scallions) dressed in  a light flax oil and lemon dressing, pure bliss!!
