Healthy pasta recipes might seem impossible, but with these delicious meals from our FitFluential Ambassadors, you can eat your favorite food without falling into a carb coma.
Pasta appeals to everyone. It helps that it’s the most versatile food on the planet, and can be made in a different style for a variety of cuisines. Mac and cheese, marinara sauce or spicy chipotle, they all have two things in common: they’re all delicious and they’ll all send you into a food coma soon after.
Pasta is known for sending you into a carb overload, leaving you feeling sluggish and tired. Add the regularly prepared sauces and you’ve got a meal made up of simple carbs and unhealthy fats with little to no protein. Most healthy eaters avoid pasta at all costs. But is a life without pasta really worth living?
Healthy pasta recipes to the rescue- because healthy pasta is possible! With new types of pasta made of brown rice or black bean, even those with gluten sensitives can enjoy these dishes. And these sauces don’t skimp on flavor, but you’ll find them to be much healthier than the heavy ones you’re used to. Portion out these recipes for dinner and even – yes – for lunch. You won’t have to fear the inevitable carb coma- these healthy pasta recipes are light and packed with healthy ingredients, so you can feel good about what you’re eating.
