5 Pasta Dishes to think you are back in Italy.

Image
Pasta is also commonly used to refer to the variety of pasta dishes, however pasta is typically the noodle made from an unleavened dough of a durum wheat flour mixed with water or eggs and formed into sheets or various shapes, then cooked by boiling or baking.
But what is more important is what makes the pasta so tasty and that is the number of different sauces that we top our pasta with. They can be as simple as a tomato Napoli Sauce or as extravagant as Crab and Truffle Sauce. Whatever the sauce is, it is the reason we love the variety Pasta offers us. Our Galley has chosen 5 Pasta Sauces to share in this blog, that will take you back to Rome.

Eggs are extremely nutritious. Eating 6-7 eggs a week will not increase your risk of heart disease when eaten as part of a  healthy eating program.

6 Heavenly Smoothies that will have your Energy Levels Bursting.

Juicing and smoothies are all the rage right now. While both can boost your fruit and vegetable intake and are great for getting a variety of produce into your diet, one is the better choice. That’s the smoothie. Why? Juicing leaves behind a pulp—which contains fiber and nutrients that you end up tossing away (unless you consume it) —and thus you lose most of the benefits of whole fruits and vegetables.
