“This is a quick and simple recipe. It highlights how healthy eating doesn’t have to be complicated or limited to a salad. Appreciate the individual flavours in this dish. You can find great healthy pastas or pasta alternative. Simple food is linked to mindful eating. When a dish has few ingredients it really allows you to appreciate each of the flavours. Build a relationship with each ingredient so that you intuitively choose what you eat based on what you need at the time. Listen to your body. Sometimes less is more.” https://www.thetrufflejournal.com/

  We adapted this recipe from Whole Bowl Foods for Balance to include more fresh Spring greens and a pasta of choice, because we love our greens at Food Lover's! *WHOLE Bowl Foods For Balance published by Penguin Random House.

When the pasta is ready, drain and return to the saucepan. Add the
gremolata and fresh greens & mix well. Season to taste with salt and a crack of black
