If cooked correctly, this can be an easy and affordable meal that can feed a whole family, which can significantly cut down your costs of food per household. This dish, made according to the recipe listed below, can make up to 10 servings and and take about 30 minutes to cook. Perfect for a quick Sunday meal or something for a sit down family meal after work! Also, in order to make this meal more healthy, choose from meats such as turkey or shrimp. In addition, try whole wheat pasta to increase fiber. The type of cheese that you can use on this recipe may make a significant difference a well (try harder & more flavorful cheeses like parmesan)! Below is the entire recipe featured along with this week's healthy eating tips. Enjoy!
HEALTHY EATING CHOICE: Cutting back on the amount of food that you love is one of the healthiest ways to stay fit. Many people are under the false impression that when you have a lifestyle change, that this indicates you will not be able to eat any of your favorite foods. This is inaccurate. When changing your lifestyle you really can indulge in some of your secret pleasures, the key is to not overdo it. Decrease your portions with a small bowl OR even when you choose to go out to eat at a restaurant, try ordering off of the children's menu. The children's menu generally has great food but significantly less on the plate than you order. Now this trick will only work if you order "one" children's meal for yourself. Ordering multiple dishes could possibly "increase" your caloric intake. And never be embarrassed to order a kid's menu without the kid - many restaurants will allow it (some for a small surcharge). After all, this is about maintaining a healthy lifestyle!
