Creamy Tomato Avocado Chickpea Pasta & Why You Need To Eat What You Love!

Creamy Tomato Avocado Chickpea Pasta & Why You Need To Eat What You Love!

Here’s a quick + easy dinner idea for when you just don’t have the time but still want to stay on track! Banza chickpea pasta is super high in fibre + protein (a lot higher than regular pasta) + very rich in vitamins + minerals! It also mimics the texture + flavour of real pasta super well so you don’t feel deprived or pathetic eating something you don’t enjoy.

PSA: Eating food you don’t enjoy or that doesn’t satisfy you is probably the worst thing you can do on a health journey. It’s SO important to eat what you love + what makes you feel good + happy so that you don’t associate eating with negative feelings because in the long run, this might lead to disordered behaviours around food, such as binging, starving or purging or a combination of them.

It’s so much smarter to eat what you love & to be adventurous with food + find healthier alternatives to the things that don’t make you feel your best! This is truly how I believe you learn to eat intuitively, heal yourself mind + body + permanently fix your relationship with food!

INGREDIENTS (serves 2-4, depending portion size)

  • 1 box Banza chickpea pasta
  • 1/2 cup homemade sugar-free marinara
  • 1/2 large avocado (or 1 small one), mashed
  • 1 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • 1 tbsp. dried parsley flakes
  • TOPPING: more nutritional yeast + minced garlic

TO MAKE IT:

  • Boil the pasta according to package directions.
  • Once boiled, drain + add it back to the skillet with the rest of the ingredients. Heat over medium heat for 2 minutes until avocado is combined, spinach is wilted + pasta is creamy!
