Spaghetti with Salmon by 7Shadows

Spaghetti with Salmon

by 7Shadows in Being Productive

Spaghetti is whole wheat and the portion of the pasta is tiny (about 23g of pasta = 17g of carbs).

Side salad is greek-style. It has olive oil, oregano, pepper, salt and red wine vinegar (amazing for reducing blood sugar). Recipe by Adam.

Raw salmon... lots of proteins. I feel so good after I eat this!

Full recipe for 4 servings:
- 100g Whole wheat Spaghetti pasta (boil based on instructions on the package)
- 1 or 1/2 Ground beef package (depending on how much protein you want)
- 1 or 2 medium onions
- 2 garlic cloves. More or less if you like garlic or not.
- 1 Tomato sauce (I got the Classico Roasted Garlic and Onions -- find the one with the least sugar and carb).
- 1 small package of Stevia extract (560mg) Has 0 sugar. Only put if you like a slightly sweet taste.
- About 1 tea spoon of salt.
- Olive oil cook at medium to low temperature (Keep oil below smoking point to keep all the benefits of olive oil)

Heat oil at medium or low (very important), then put garlic until golden then beef and heat for about 2-3 mins. The put vegetables, cover for about 3-4 mins. Then put tomato sauce mix, reduce heat to low and cover for about 5-10 mins until it's well cooked.

    Very nice concept and I haven't tried this yet .. one good tip for placing food on a plate ... never go over the center .. I would have place the salmon together or on top of the spaghetti so the rand is free and clean !

      Food placement is the A and O of every plate ... you did fabulous with the spaghetti and I would give you a top note on this one .. the salmon added on top would have been the top notch .. on the side it looks disturbing to a wonderful demonstration :)

    What is Stevia extract?

      Stevia is a sweetener but without sugar/calorie. It's all natural from a plant grown in Mexico. The extract is just a powder made out of the plant.

    I'd be too afraid of messing something up and having it turn out half as well as it's presented here, if I could even get that far. Agreed with Drakhenliche though. Very well presented and sounds delicious.

    That's making me hungry. Very nicely presented. And I'm with you on the salmon, though I like it smoked best - can't get enough of the stuff!

      Completely agree. Smoked salmon is also amazing and goes so well with salad! :)
