11. A Healthful Bowl of PASTA

Don't believe anyone who tells you pasta can't be healthy. It can. And those who deny themselves the joy of pasta do not live their greatest lives. First, use whole wheat pasta because like brown rice, it has more nutrients and fiber. Second, add PLENTY of vegetables and some healthy protein. Third, limit your sources of saturated fats like cream, butter, cheese, and fatty meat. Try this Whole Wheat Rigatoni with Roasted Vegetables and Pine Nuts, or this Linguine with Shrimp, Olives, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes. You can also tweak your favorite recipes to be healthier: Try making this fusilli with roasted broccoli and cauliflower with whole wheat noodles, half the pasta and cheese, and twice the veggies.
