Spaghetti Squash is a terrific alternative to pasta. It has low carbohydrates has the same texture as noodles. Ground Turkey is leaner than red meat. Avoid the unhealthy effects of red meat with ground turkey. Organic Tomato Sauce is simple and healthy. Read the label before buying your tomato sauce and check for minimal ingredients.

Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. Tomatoes are a great source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.
