Getting Real With Rachel

If you are a fan of Rachel Ray's 30 minutes meals, then you know that Rachel is very big on pasta and other high carb foods that are good to eat because they are so satisfying, but aren't necessarily diet friendly. In '30-Minute Get Real Meals', Rachel tackles the task of creating menus that are not only very tasty (yummo!), but are also low-carb alternatives to her other cookbooks, making these recipes healthy alternatives. Here you will have recipes that solve snack ideas, light meals (soups and stoups, a cross between soup and stew)as well as meals you can prepare for family and friends and even some tasty desserts that don't require baking (she doesn't bake). As always, Rachel is big on hearty flavor and she doesn't skimp on using her favorite herbs and spices. She even included a section for pasta lovers, but cautions to skip it if you are sticking to a low-carb menu, or just simply cut the pasta portion down to keep to comply with the theme of the book. You can also substitute whole-grain pasta and grains for these recipes as well. The book is available in soft-cover at all book sellers and is well worth the price for all the great 30-minute recipes you will get in return.

Susan,

I have to say that I love whole wheat pasta! I transitioned to it using one of those whole grain blends, like Dreamfields and Healthy Harvest. Now I just eat the 100 percent organic whole wheat pasta and I really enjoy it (which means something since I am a pick eater).
