There is a huge impact that physical health can have on our mental health, included eating a well-balanced and nutritious diet. This has a positive impact and plays an important role in building our mental wellness and resilience.

Baked Feta Pasta ~ Emily P.
"I took a recipe that my family had loved in the past but added more veggies and a healthy pasta substitute. Baked Feta Pasta with Vegetables First, I put cherry tomatoes, a block of feta cheese, olive oil, & a whole bunch of spices & herbs into a casserole dish and cooked it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 30 mins. Once the tomatoes looked cooked and the cheese was soft, I stirred it until it became a smooth sauce and added some spinach, mushrooms, and broccoli. I boiled some black bean spaghetti and poured the sauce over the pasta. I topped with basil and grated parmesan cheese, and voilà! You have a healthy, delicious baked feta pasta with vegetables."
