Pomodoro Sauce

Pomodoro Sauce

The only type of cross tRAINing I did this week was walking up and down the stairs to get from the kitchen and back to my room. In addition to the weather being wholly depressing – read: 7 straight days of rain, I applied to PA school. This translates to gathering up transcripts, recommendations, patient care hours, and writing a ridiculous amount of supplements for each school. Just sedentary busy work, and I was in a funk. In an effort to just get all of them over with, I discarded a lot of my regular habits which usually keep me feeling happy and healthy. The weather, compounded with the school work I had, actually work I had, and the PA school apps, resulted in all time low motivation levels. But such is life, I guess. Waxing and waning of nearly insurmountable stress and then back to normal – law of averages my dad always says. As of yesterday, I finished all of the applications, emptied out my wallet to hit the “send to schools” button, and as I type this, the sun is officially shining.

To get back on track with my regular habits (especially because Mother’s Day this morning was greeted with a heavy stack of pancakes), I made a few salads to kick off my work week. The pomodoro sauce was the staple, and the simple recipe is below.

  • 1 package grape tomatoes
  • 1 package greens (I used EarthBound Organics Savory Arugula)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp chopped basil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic

Do this:

  1. Place tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, olive oil, and garlic in a pan and let wilt down (about 10 minutes)
  2. Add greens and basil
  3. Mix with whatever you have! I chose chickpea pasta and cucumbers and paired with and apple and pumpkin seeds on the side!
