Today’s Menu: Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Baked French Bread

 

Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs 003

 
A sunny Spring day out today, but we still have a cool light breeze blowing. Took the Cart out for a spin but wasn’t out too long due to the wind. The past day or so Mom and me have been gathering old bills and documents that needed shredded. This morning around the area was Shred Day. They have this every Spring where you can drop off anything you need shredded. I believe there was 4 drop areas this year from 9-1. I went over to one that was about 2 miles away around 9:00 this morning. I had no clue what I was in store for! There was literally hundreds, and I mean hundreds, of cars already in line! So from 9:02 this morning till about 10:10 I was in line to drop off 6 bags of bills and papers that needed shredded. The line actually moved quicker than what I thought it would, but what a traffic nightmare it was over there. Next time I’ll go early. We have a shredder, but its old and very slow. Maybe it’s time to invest in a new one. Anyway for dinner a classic comfort food, Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs with French Bread.

 

 

 
You just can’t go wrong with a Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs Dinner! I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs along with Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. I always use Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pastas. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t bad for Pasta. The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are the best I’ve found, fantastic taste and their 190 calories and 6 carbs for 3 Meatballs. Topped everything with some fresh grated Parmesan Cheese and Ragu Chunky Mushroom Pasta Sauce. I normally use Bella Vita Low carb Pasta Sauce but was out of it so I went with the Ragu, which was excellent! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread. Before baking it I brushed the top with extra Virgin Olive Oil and sprinkled Sesame Seeds across the top. It was a real Italian treat tonight! For dessert later a Jello Sugar free Double Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

Here’s something to absorb: One serving of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST pasta has over 20% of your daily recommended fiber intake – but did you know that fiber is good for you in more ways than just digestion?

People with diets high in fiber have a lower risk for weight gain, obesity, development of insulin resistance and diabetes. Fiber also prevents constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulosis, but it also helps reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases like colon and breast cancer. Fiber may help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and total cholesterol, therefore reducing the risk of heart disease. It can also help lower blood sugar to better manage diabetes.

Dietary fiber is the edible part of plants, primarily carbohydrates that are resistant to digestion and absorption in the small intestine. Fiber may be digested by fermentation in the large intestine. By eating high fiber foods you feel fuller, eat less, with fewer absorbed calories.

Fiber comes in two basic forms – soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, seeds, brown rice, oats and barley. It prevents or reduces the absorption of certain substances into the bloodstream. Insoluble fiber is found mainly in whole grains and on the outside of seeds, fruits, legumes, and other foods. It is like a sponge that swells within the intestine to promote more efficient elimination and alleviate some digestive disorders.

Fiber is found only in plant foods and passes through the digestive tract without being completely broken down. Being indigestible, fiber provides no nutrients to the body, which is why for many years it was removed from processed foods like white bread. But, nutritionists have since discovered that fiber performs valuable functions precisely because it is not digested, and it is essential to good health.
