I LOVE spaghetti.
Growing up, I would get made fun of by my family for how much of it I would eat (seriously, two or three massive platefuls in one sitting).
How about this: as a toddler, I’d run into the dining room struggling to rip my shirt over my oversized head so that I could eat my spaghetti as fast as possible without getting sauce on my clothes. After dinner my parents would have to practically hose me down in the backyard I was so messy – totally worth it.
Now, in my quest for a healthier lifestyle over the past few years, I’ve learned that…gasp…gallons of pasta at each meal isn’t the healthiest thing in the world! So, I’ve cut back drastically on my pasta intake – I probably eat pasta once every few months now, when I’m out at an Italian restaurant with friends and feel like letting go for a meal.
If you are a paleo person but love pasta, I feel ya. This could help.
Maybe you’re not paleo, but you’re looking for an alternative to carb-heavy pasta. This will help you too.
