Splurge Selectively...

May 26, 2012

Living a healthy and weight conscious life doesn’t mean that you have to give up your favorite chocolate cake for good! Allow yourself to splurge on special occasions—guilt free! Remember that moderation is key. For this holiday weekend try this Gluten-free Veggie Filled Pasta Salad so that you can save calories for your sweet treat! This recipe was inspired by a delicious recipe my Sister brings to parties, but this is my twist. 4 cups spiral multi-color rice noodles (I use Tinkyada Pasta Joy) 2 cups cooked chickpeas 1 red bell pepper, chopped 1 cup broccoli, chopped 4 carrots, shredded (you can also use any veggies you like) 1/4 cup Italian Dressing or more if you like Italian Dressing 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice 1/4 cup  raw apple cider vinegar 1 clove of organic garlic 2/3 cup pure water 2/3 cup olive oil 1-1/2 tsp Sea salt 3 tsp Italian seasoning
