You’re gonna think I’ve hit my noodle when I tell you that pasta can be a part of your health journey! “But, Heidi, everyone knows that pasta makes you fat. All those carbs and heavy sauces….I mean, I miss pasta but there’s just no way pasta can be healthy. Is there?”
You bet there is! If you’re following 90/10 Nutrition, you know that we don’t count carbs (or fats or proteins), and the only calories we worry about are the ones that ﬁnd themselves on the yellow tier.
Pasta The 90/10 Way
100% whole grain pasta is on the green tier! Now, I’m not suggesting you eat a pound of pasta a day, because that would be a little obsessive, and let’s face it, weird. But if you want to include pasta when you eat a wide variety of green tier foods, then check out these amazing recipes we’ve created.
Not all spaghetti is Italian you know, and this meatless beauty is a family favorite in my house.
What kind of pasta palooza would this be without traditional spaghetti?
