Carb Overload!

30 Sep

I just got home from work and immediately headed into the kitchen with the Husband to make lunch.  I had some walnuts and a protein shake at work in between clients to tide me over until I got home.

Since I ate a lot of carbs yesterday, I set my mind to eating mostly fruits and vegetables today.  I like to keep everything in balance.  So far, its not happening.  The Husband suggested we eat the left over spaghetti from last night for lunch with a pita for dipping in the tomato sauce.  I gave in, and while he reheated the pasta, I whipped up my favorite appetizer, the broiled pita (brushed with olive oil, sprinkled with crushed red pepper, fresh ground black pepper, minced garlic and parmesan!

Spinach Fettuccini with Garlic Meat Sauce (organic grass-fed beef from a local ranch, you could use ground turkey, tofu or just leave out the meat) topped with fresh parmesan reggiano.

All together now!

After this big lunch, I doubt I will be very hungry for dinner.  Remember, everything in moderation!  This weekend will be filled with lean protein, salads and fruit to make up for my carb heavy Wednesday and Thursday!  : )

What is your favorite kind of pasta?  Do you have a favorite pasta sauce recipe?
