And what better way to kick start your healthier lifestyle than by cooking up a delicious meal for you and your family, right? You don’t even have to give up your favourite foods, and we will show you how:
For example, pasta. People always assume they have to say bye to pasta if they want to live healthy. But that is absolutely not true. There are so many amazing healthy alternatives that are gluten free, wheat free, low in calories and have a lower GI. The best example is Edamama, a gluten free pasta brand from Switzerland that are made of soy beans.
