Simple Roasted Vegetable Spaghetti Sauce

Spaghetti Sauce is the greatest thing ever. Since sliced bread. Well, with sliced bread, on the side. Covered in Garlic. Yum.

Here's a super simple recipe for spaghetti sauce that contains zero preservatives.  You can make as much or as little as you like, so there is no wasting that giant can.  This recipe is also a great way to sneak in additional servings of vegetables for your kids!

You'll need:
- Assorted roasted vegetables.  (I like garlic, tomatoes, and onions at a minimum, but here I had some squash that was going to go bad, so I also included that)
- A blender
- Seasonings

Step 1: Roast your vegetables.  You can find my method here.

Step 2: Blend your vegetables together with seasonings. (You may need to add some water, but tomatoes have enough liquid to start the process)

Step 3: Enjoy your spaghetti sauce!

Zombie Dreams

Best thing happened as I walked out of my terrible infusion.  I. Found. A. Zombie Family.  Normally I really detest these family clings (with the exception of the cat lady I found once.  No joke, one woman, eight cats) but how can you hate it when they are zombies?!

For your viewing pleasure:

Frozen Banana Ice Cream

One major change that I'm doing with my diet due to my MS is decreasing the amount of dairy I consume.  I'm working towards completely removing the dairy, but I haven't done that quite yet.  I wanted to find an alternative to ice cream (since it's my favorite dessert.  Ever.  That's Wisconsin for you).  Dear ole Pinterest has yet to fail me!  I found that ice cream can be made from a variety of frozen fruits, but the one that is the closest to ice cream is frozen bananas. Here's the recipe:

You'll need:
- blender
- bananas

That's it!  All you have to do is collect those black bananas that you didn't get around to eating and place them in the freezer.  Once you want ice cream, blend them until they are creamy and smooth!

Optional add-ins: oreos, peanut butter, almonds, chocolate, nutella (!) etc. The possibilities are endless!

Yoga Moods

As we approach the last week of classes, I figured that these moves might come in handy.  Variations are also acceptable for those who lack flexibility (or balance, like me!).
