Scroll down for the recipe if you donโ€™t want to read about my pastaphobia๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

Iโ€™ve feared eating โ€˜normalโ€™ pasta for way to long and rather cooked protein packed pasta like chickpea or lentil (which I still eat, donโ€™t get me wrong), buuut weโ€™re here to learn and appreciate food without any regrets, right? While wheat pasta has always been one of the foods I avoided, I started to include them and other fear foods of mine while being on my ED recovery. For anyone who never struggled with their food intake it may be hard to understand why I felt (and still often feel) anxious about it but if youโ€™re also at the same point in your life where food became an obsession, here are a few things that help me along the way:

๐ŸŒผ Donโ€™t rush, you donโ€™t have to eat everything youโ€™ve avoided at once
๐ŸŒผ Include your fear foods step by step
๐ŸŒผ Try to understand which type of food makes you feel good and which doesnโ€™t
๐ŸŒผ Appreciate your body and itโ€™s cravings – you are allowed to have a second piece of cake!
๐ŸŒผ Block out negative opinions on your journey, not everyone will understand how youโ€™re feeling, so concentrate on yourself and your support system of friends and family

Now hereโ€™s what you need for this easy pasta pomodoro with leek:

Pasta of choice (I cooked 200g for 2 portions)
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
400g Passata (or crushed tomatoes)
1/2 Leek, chopped
Basil (fresh or dried)
Garlic & Chili (optional)
2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast (optional)
Salt & Pepper

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Cook pasta according to package. Place leek in a pan, cover the bottom with water and cook it for 2-3 minutes (if the water isnโ€™t dissolved, drain it). Add olive oil, garlic, seasoning and passata to the pan and let it simmer for another 5 minutes. Strain your pasta, then pour the sauce over and combine gently. Top your pasta with some ๐ŸŒฑ cheeeeeze and enjoy it!

Lots of love,
