Healthy Good Carb Lifestyle Blogging

This recipe is quicker and less expensive than restaurant delivery or home meal kits.  Saving time and money gives me more time to do what I love such as my favorite form of exercise, Pilates! I’m blessed to have found the best exercise for myself to stick to and to have discovered the benefits of a low glycemic diet. Good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle have kept me living a full and active life as CEO of Holista Foods, a wife, mother, grandmother and survivor of Leukemia.

It’s never too late. I’m turning 70 this year and thanks to regular exercise and the Holista good carb lifestyle, I’ve never felt better!

Holista spaghetti has phytonutrient rich superfood ingredients added. If you haven’t heard of phytonutrients, they are nutrients we get from plant foods that have a host of beneficial properties.

You don’t have to go “No Carb, just think “Slow Carb”,  which does not lead to a spike in blood sugar and insulin. The only way I know that has been proven to control weight.

Here’s one of my favorite super easy healthy recipes when I’m hungry and craving comfort food ASAP!

Just 4 ingredients and 10 minutes later, Ahhhhhh……I’m one happy gal!  Even happier when accompanied with a glass of Italian red.
