MEAL PREP GUIDE for pasta lovers 🍝📝😍 Raise your hand if you heard or read (at least once) that pasta is not healthy and you should not eat it while trying to reach your goals (especially when you want to lose weight). Let me tell you good news 👉🏼 that's a MYTH ‼️ I eat pasta at least once or twice a week and it has never sabotaged my progress. There are many pasta types you can choose from and you don't need to eliminate it from your nutrition plan to achieve results. I usually eat whole wheat pasta but from time to time, if I feel like, I go for durum semolina pasta. I also like gluten free millet pasta. If you don't know how to create healthy and delicious pasta meal, simply follow below steps (all ingredients are weighed before cooking): 1. 🔺CARBS - 50g of whole wheat pasta (you can substitute it with brown rice pasta, quinoa pasta, buckwheat noodles, black bean pasta or gluten free millet pasta). 2. 🔺 PROTEIN - 130g of baked chicken breast (you can change it for chicken thighs, beef, shrimp, white fish or salmon, if you are vegetarian you can go for chickpeas, black beans or tofu). 3. 🔺VEGGIES (also carbs source) - 120g zucchini and 30g cherry tomatoes (you can substitute for any green vegetable you want, bell pepper, aubergine or onion, you can also use tomato sauce if you don't like veggies on side).
4. 🔺 HEALTHY FATS - 20g of cashews (you can change it for any other nuts or 10g of coconut/olive oil or 50g avocado). 5. 🔺 SEASONINGS - I used salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, Mrs Dash Garlic&Herb Blend. .
