Low Carb Substitues for Pasta part 1

I love pasta, and make it frequently as it's a favorite in my household. The best part about my pasta however is my homemade sauce (and all the ooey gooey cheese!). I swap out the pasta with roasted eggplant or shirataki tofu noodles and have a very indulgent dinner for about 300 calories!

What's for Dinner (Breakfast, Lunch)?

I keep my digital camera handy and take pictures of my meals before I eat to refer to them when I'm met with the proverbial question, What's for Dinner? Once full, I simply download them to my computer. Bon Appetite! emoticon

Use up the mustard

When the mustard container is almost empty, I add water to make a very thin sauce. I add it to marinades and dressings to zing things up a little.

Try New Things

I try at least 1-2 new recipes every couple weeks. Sometimes it is something completely new and other times it is something that I have adapted to be more healthy. I don't even have the same meal more than once a month.

Herbs are the best helper

I do not use salt, I use herbs in almost everything I cook, rosemary under the steak on the grill, mint in the zucchini, cinnamon in the coffee. Try yourself and find your favorites. emoticon

Clean Eating

Eating clean has changed my life! I eat as close to the source as possible and very little processed food. Clean Eating Magazine and Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Cookbook are staples in my kitchen!
