Spaghetti and Vegetable “Noodles”

No Comments | Written on July 26, 2014 at 5:00 am , by

By now most of us know that a serving size of pasta is much smaller than what we tend to put on our plates.  So how do you indulge in a big bowl of pasta without throwing your diet off track?  Supplement your spaghetti with vegetable “noodles!”

Nowadays it is easier than ever to bulk up your plate with veggies using the popular “spiralizer” tools now on the market.  Really, its just a fancy way of cutting your favorite vegetables into noodle ribbons so they can be easily tossed into your favorite dishes.  Why not make your big bowl of spaghetti half pasta and half vegetables?  Your waistline will thank you!

Mexican Stuffed Peppers

No Comments | Written on April 2, 2014 at 5:00 am , by

This recipe is a vegetarian version of stuffed peppers with a Mexican twist!

The filling is made of brown rice, vegetables and beans with a kick from chipotle peppers.  Should there be any leftover filling after you stuff the peppers,, it makes a great stuffing for enchiladas, burritos, or quesadillas.

My favorite part of the recipe is the crunchy pepita topping.  It’s made with chopped pumpkin seeds, cheese and (here’s the twist) Grape Nuts cereal!
