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.
