Why do we crave bread and pasta? Just like sweets, these things are high in calories and if we are not eating often we may feel drained and our bodies are looking for a fast energy source. The trick is to eat several small meals a day without consuming too many calories. It takes mind and will-power to control what you eat, but the results are priceless and can years to your life! One way to satisfy your craving and still get results is to simply make healthier choice substitutions. I like this recipe on the weekends when I feel like cheating…without actually cheating!
