Simple Supper, Busy Life

A simple supper for our unfortunately busy life and What I Ate Wednesday!

Who watched the Today show this morning?  I caught part of it while getting ready for class.  I was so excited to see the Michelle Obama Let's Move Program.  Currently they are trying to set the Guinness World Record for the most jumping jacks in a 24 hour period.  As someone with a background in Healthy and Physical Education this gets me so excited, it is so important to get kids up and moving! 

Anywho, they took a moment to interview Ms. Obama and asked her how her family manages living and eating healthy with their busy lives.  She stated "we just make it a priority"  how great is that!  Everyone has busy lives but I believe it is soooo important to make eating healthy a priority and I'm so glad to see the First Lady does too. 

The hubs and I were feeling super busy, super tired, and running low on groceries so we were in need of a simple, fast supper... but before that here's what else I ate today.

Breakfast:  Peanut Butter toast + banana+ black coffee + water

Lunch: Leftover Chickpea & Leak Soup + homemade bread with cheese + water

Alright our simple supper is nothing too exciting but it's fast, it's healthy, it's easy, and it's not takeout (which is so easy to turn to when your busy and tired).

Dinner: Pasta+semi-homemade sauce + Peas + Water

Whole Wheat Spaghetti
4 cloves garlic minced
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil

Cook the pasta.  Saute the garlic in some EVOO add the diced tomatoes and spices let simmer until the pasta is ready and your good to eat!  We cooked up some frozen peas on the side. 

Side note:  I really like the taste of diced tomatoes vs. pasta sauce.  If you prefer sauce you can find cans of "tomato sauce"  that are just tomatoes with no salt added. 

What are your great dinner ideas when your super busy?
