pasta carbonara
Pasta carbonara is one of my favorites -- but let's face it, it's not exactly the healthiest meal. Like I always seem to do, I created my own spin to make this a much healthier dish (I even got a "wow Ang, this is really great! How did you make this?!" from my husband before he knew I made it healthy). So get in the kitchen, don't mess up your workout and don't sacrifice any bit of flavor. You could also easily make this with chicken if you prefer.
