I have to admit that it was very hard for me to stop eating pasta when I went on my clean eating frenzy 8 months ago. I did lose the baby weight and more even. I was a big carb junkie back then. But I always ate bad carbs and I just didn’t care. Now that I have lost the weight I am just maintaining so I eat more healthy carbs. We make pasta once a week and I use whole wheat or whole grain. Every time I ask my kids what they wanted to eat it seems like the only answer they know is Pasta or Peegetti. They imitate Peppa Pig. She always says Peegetti. I would rather eat Pasta made at home than at a restaurant. I noticed that at restaurants they are always loaded with butter. Have you seen the Healthy Mac and Cheese, it is a popular one at my house.
At First we were just going to have the tomato basil pasta. it just happened that I was grilling some chicken for my husband and I realized that why not add some protein on the past dish for the kids and I am glad that they loved it. Thank God all my kids love Chicken. it came out just perfect and delicious.
