Lately I’ve been struggling with an obsession. It’s called olives. I cannot stop thinking about them, and I cannot stop popping them in my mouth. What is happening to me? I hate olives! This just goes to show that food preferences CAN change. First it was cilantro, and now this.
As someone who swells up in the face easily and resembles a Jigglypuff (my lil’ brother was obsessed with Pokemon…don’t judge), whenever excessive sodium is introduced into the body, I try to stay away from salty foods as much as possible. Not this time, I suppose. To help with portion control, I decided to incorporate them into various dishes, Pasta Puttanesca being one of them. I share the recipe over at the Healthy Aperture Blog, so I hope you’ll stop by and check it out!
