Since a while I’ve been eating as healthy as possible, it’s pleasant for me to do so, I like being able to eat foods that are tasty, varied, but at the same time healthy. That has caused me to feel more energetic, I haven’t had any stomach problems, and I can just notice only benefits. However, I still occasionally upload some recipes for those who like bigger and/or sweeter meals, or also for special occasions.
Now, for the regular daily meals is that I have recipes such as the one I share today, an exquisite Zucchini pasta with tomatoes and meat sauce. If you want to lower the amount of carbohydrates, if you are looking for a healthier diet, if you don’t like whole wheat pasta, or if you just want to try something different, this is definitely your recipe. It has really been a smart move acquiring this machine for cutting vegetables into strands of “spaghetti”, among other cuts. There are different brands and prices. The one I have is the one I show in the photo, it is simple to use, as well as easy to wash and store.
*For the vegetarians, this recipe is perfect, you just have to ommit using the meat in the sauce, and that’s it!
