Detox Day 11- Veggie Pasta Sauce

It's a beautiful January day and we're so close to the halfway point. Definitely feeling better, with more energy and less bloating! My body loves me again. 

Breakfast: Health bomb, because Disneyland.

Snack: Boiled egg.

Lunch: Strawberry shake.

Snack: Green apple with almond butter.

Dinner: Pasta. That's right. Pasta.

It's hard to find a tomato sauce that fits the detox criteria. Most of them are not organic, have tons of sugar, or preservatives. And I love past, the kids love pasta, everyones loves it. So why not have pasta? You won't even miss the cheese! I used to believe that switching to wheat pasta was a good move. Now, I now better. This is brown rice quinoa pasta, and it's heavenly.

1 bag of brown rice quinoa pasta.
2 Tbsp of olive oil
1 small sweet onion
2 large shallots
2 Tbsp of minced garlic
4 tomatos
1 large carrot
1 cup of sliced bell peppers
S&P al gusto
1/2 lb of turkey

Paso a paso:

1) Cook pasta according to instructions on bag. Set aside.

2) In a skillet, heat up olive oil and add onions, shallots, garlic, salt and pepper.

3) Once the onions are somewhat brown, add tomatoes, and carrots. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.

4) Add the bell peppers and cover for another 3 minutes.

5) Take the skillet of the heat and add vegetable mix to a blender. Blend on high for 2 or 3 minutes.

6) Strain sauce back into skillet.

7) Add ground turkey to sauce and cook covered on low until well done ( about 15 or 20 minutes)

8) Uncover pan and cook on high until some of the water evaporates. Serve over pasta.

Dessert: I added a little agave to my tea tonight, for a sweet, good night.
