Today’s Menu: Spaghetti and Meatballs

 

Spaghetti LaRosa Sauce
Had a delicious and healthy Breakfast to start my day, using Jennie – O Breakfast Turkey Sausage Links. Did my daily morning work out and on to some house chores. Also they started the outside repairs today, which are much needed. They are starting with our shed, replacing the corner wood and door. Also a fresh coat of paint. When that’s completed it’s on to the wooden deck and my wooden ramp. Does no good trying to save money, always something! For tonight’s Dinner I prepared Spaghetti and Meatballs.

 

 

 

I’m using Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Spaghetti, my favorite Pasta. Cooks up great and an excellent tasting Pasta. It’s 180 calories and 35 net carbs per serving. 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 always prepare extra Meatballs so I can make a Meatball Sub with them for my lunch or dinner the next day. For my Pasta Sauce I used a new one I came across at Meijer, Ragu Robusto Parmesan and Romano. I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread and an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Spaghetti

 

Here’s something to absorb: One serving of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST pasta has over 20% of your daily ronzonirecommended 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 ronzonichronic 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.
