I’m feeling like I’m really slacking in my progress on this 1/3 Less Challenge. I had such high hopes and so many categories I wanted to focus around. But I’ve only managed to really focus on just a few of those original categories. I guess too many changes at once just don’t work for me. However, I am definitely feeling the benefits where I have cut back by 1/3, so I guess that’s good. How’s it going for you?

Here’s another quick and easy dish that will get you out of the kitchen in 1/3 Less time. Frozen ravioli is one prepared, convenience food that makes a regular appearance in our house without much guilt on my part. It’s always my go-to option on monthly grocery shopping day. Usually I toss it with some homemade marinara sauce and frozen spinach. However, even for a once a month dish, that gets a little old sometimes. So I came up with this very simple idea instead. It turned out great and was a wonderful change of pace. Plus, dinner was done, start to finish, in about 15 minutes. Perfect!
