Get Tipsy off ( low carb ) Pasta

Hello, helloooo!

Anyone else going cray this time of the summer?

I’ve moved out of my old apartment and into the new, finished two summer classes, drove home ( to Chicago ) from Madison, spent 24 hours in Michigan with friends, and started getting ready to fly to Canada!! If that isn’t doing the most, idk what is.

Before I head north to the land of maple syrup, ( and apparently chocolate bars ?!! ) I’m sticking to a strict diet and workout routine. There’s a fat chance that I’ll be treating myself to pancakes drowned in maple syrup and chocolate chips 😛

After I unpacked at home, my mom and I went to Trader Joe’s for a healthy food haul and I bought all the necessities : everything but the bagel seasoning, ezikiel toast, brussels sprouts, spinach, avocado and RED LENTIL PASTA.

My insta feed is saturated with this high protein, low carb beauty. The TJ’s red lentil pasta v filling & v healthy. I like to jazz it up with roasted brussels sprouts, roasted asparagus, parm cheese, and vodka sauce – maybe I’ll hold off on chocolate wasted and just get pasta wasted for now??!

I have to give a shoutout to Lauryn Evarts from The Skinny Confidential for introducing this guiltless pasta to me.

B/c I’m a TJ’s groupie, I also use their vodka sauce, but you could easily sub with another sauce. I also enjoy adding roasted veggies to my pasta because it adds larger volume.

LMK what you think!
