The word for today most definitely has to be “Procrastination” and believe me I am brilliant at it. I know there are lots of things that I need to do and get on with and I am finding anything to do to avoid them. Why am I doing this? Well it is something I have happily developed over the last few years and I think it is the bury the head in the sand tactic with the hope things might sort themselves out.
I have to say that although things occasionally do just sort themselves out the majority of the time I have needed to be proactive to resolve things. It is always worth being proactive as when I am not things always weigh on my mind and so are there constantly eating away at me and the reality is that most of the time things are easier to sort out than you realise.
I apologise for the talking in riddles, it is not intended it is just there are so many things going on at the moment and things that I want to keep to myself until they are resolved that it is easier to give you a rough overview until I know more about it. Anyway enough of this random waffle and on with the recipe.
The first thing I want to address on this recipe is the use of pasta. I know that I am always going on about Low GL recipes and that meals heavy in carbohydrates are not that good for you but that does not mean you cannot eat pasta. The important things to remember is to keep the portion sizes small and to make sure it is whole wheat pasta. I also want to add that this dish is filled full of vegetables and is so good for you in so many ways that you really cannot go wrong.
If you are just having a small meal then this dish might be enough for you but if you are looking to have a larger meal then consider serving it with a protein filled salad. You could also consider serving it with these lovely Lemon & Garlic Butter Beans to get your protein fill.
