The Dish on Pasta ~ A Slimmer, Healthier You!

Spring Asparagus and Pasta in Curry Cream Sauce

Carbohydrates get a lot of bad press! Carbs have been unjustly labeled a food group to avoid by proponents of the ill-advised Atkins/Paleo style diet.

Carbohydrates are an important part of a healthy diet and ounce for ounce contain fewer calories than either fat or alcohol. Carbohydrates provide energy; they fuel our workouts and provide energy throughout the day. There are two types of carbohydrates: simple and complex.

The difference lies in the fact that commercial processing removes the fiber-rich outer hull and bran in products such as, white rice, white flour, white sugar, white bread, etc. These are some of the foods that are classified as  ‘simple carbohydrates’

Fiber slows digestion and simple carbohydrates are digested very quickly, spiking blood sugar and causing a rush of energy, invariably followed soon after by a crash.

On the other hand, complex carbohydrates release energy slowly and are found in vegetables, nuts, legumes and grains, such as oatmeal and pasta. Unlike simple carbs, these foods are also high in vitamins and minerals. …read more of The Dish on Pasta ~ A Slimmer, Healthier You! here

Delicious Quiche: No Eggs, No Dairy, No Kidding!

Eggs are inextricably associated with Easter… however eggs have been colored, exchanged and eaten as an element of the rites of spring long before the Christian era.

Quiche can be a perfect menu item for Easter Brunch and this vegan quiche contains none of the artery clogging saturated fat and cholesterol of the traditional ingredients.

Quiche is thought of as a complex French classic that requires a bit of skill and lots of fatty ingredients. While there are several variations of the basic theme, the rich custard base is a constant.

Traditionally, high-fat ingredients loaded with cholesterol, such as cream, eggs and cheese are baked in a rich pastry shell. Certainly, quiche made in this way would be considered far too heavy in fat, calories and cholesterol for today’s health conscious cook. …read more of Vegan Broccoli Quiche ~Perfect for Easter Brunch! here
