I'm very excited about my new adventure! Getting healthy which includes my clean eating. That has inspired me to think outside of the box for more healthier and cleaner meals - but still getting my fix for those favorite foods that aren't always good for me.
Pasta is one them. Pasta is chuck full of carbs. Carbs are not my friend. So, I avoid them at all costs, but sometimes they are so hard to resist.
When I started eating more healthy, I switched from white pasta to wheat pasta. Now-- I avoid pasta all together. But that meant no more spaghetti, Fettuccine Alfredo and my all time favorite -- lasagna.
I read about squash spaghetti -- but squash is one of the vegetables I stay away from, because of it's starchy content. Using squash as a replacement for the noodles sparked the idea of using zucchini. So, one day I made spaghetti for the family. I sliced up some zucchini and red peppers for myself and Wah-luh! I enjoyed a plate of spaghetti with out all those extra carbs.
