While my girls tucked into their spaghetti noodles with chicken bolognese sauce for lunch yesterday, I had my kind of spaghetti, free from carbohydrates – with organic alfalfa sprouts 😉
This tasted SO SO good and not cloy at all. There’s something about durum wheat noodles that give me a cloy feeling after the meal, which I hate. The same goes whenever I eat yellow noodles or flat rice noodles. But with green sprouts, mmmm, it tastes so refreshing and I do not have the nauseous feeling after my meal! And alfalfa sprouts are very healthy too!
I also like to enjoy my ‘spaghetti’ by substituting the wheat flour spaghetti with multi-grain and seed crackers or a slice of toasted wholemeal bread. This way, I do not have to worry about the insulin spike from the wheat flour and I get to enjoy the meaty bolognese sauce without feeling fat!
