Today’s Menu: Spaghetti and Meatballs

 

 

 

Spaghetti LaRosa Sauce
Humid and hazy out today. Went and seen Dad this morning, looks as though he may come home around September 10th. Came home and repaired Mom’s Sweeper for her. Then watched College Football for the afternoon, first weekend of Football! Love Football starting but that also means that the Summer is almost over! It went quick this year. Mom ate with Dad at the rehab center so it was solo cooking for dinner. Tonight one of my favorites, Spaghetti and Meatballs.

 

 

 

Honeysuckle White Fresh Italian Style Turkey Meatballs
I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Spaghetti, my favorite Pasta. Cooks up great and an excellent tasting Pasta. Then for my Meatballs I used Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. The Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs are good size, meaty, and have a fantastic taste and their 190 calories and 5 net carbs for 3 Meatballs. I almost always use Jennie -O when using Turkey but no store in this area sells Jennie – O Turkey Meatballs. On a Jennie – O Turkey note, Kroger has started selling Jennie – O Turkey Bacon now. For my Pasta Sauce I used LaRosa’s Original Sauce. A local favorite and still one of the best Sauces I’ve had. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream topped with some fresh sliced Peaches.

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 diverticulitis, 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.
