The ultimate comfort food that is not only healthy but irresistably delicious! The flavors of the beloved pizza is all baked to ooey-gooey perfection in this chicken spinach pizza couscous casserole.
Hope you had a wonderful and delicious holiday with your loved ones! If you are anything like me, you may be experiencing holiday withdrawal this week. Although I mentally prepare myself every time, the transition from taking a brief pause in life to being thrust back into work and the daily grind is never an easy one.
To be quite honest with you, closing down my kitchen for a week was quite glorious! Even though I love to cook, it’s so nice to have other people pamper you from time to time. However, perhaps I was a bit too spoiled because I’m having a really rough time getting myself back in the kitchen. I definitely failed at meal prepping for this first week of 2016, but that’s ok. I’m sure I’ll get back into the swings of things soon. After all, having a meal prep routine is one of the most important components of eating healthfully throughout the week. Let me add eating breakfast every day to that list as well. Be sure to check out my healthy and easy breakfast tips and recipes for some inspiration!
If becoming a healthier new is or has been your New Year’s goal for many years, I hope 2016 is a year full of fostering habits that will turn your goal into a permanent lifestyle rather than a temporary mission.
In any case, if you are feeling like me and requiring a slow transition back into real life, what you need right now (or perhaps all the time) is a quick and easy 30-minute meal with minimal ingredients. I’m sure leftovers for days doesn’t sound too shabby either ;).
Enter this chicken spinach pizza couscous casserole. It’s basically the flavors of the beloved pizza all baked to ooey-gooey perfection. What I love about this meal is that you can load it up with whatever vegetables you have on hand without worrying about the dough getting soggy. It’s a great way to clean up your fridge as well!
