Trying to eat healthier can be daunting. It does take more time and effort but some meals can still be quick and easy. Tonight we had Pasta & Sausage for dinner; a delicious meal but very simple to make and not too bad ingredients-wise.
I found a great tasting corn pasta at Dominion, the only ingredient is corn flour. I am still on the fence regarding corn but I know gluten bothers me, so I would rather eat a 1 ingredient gluten free pasta that I know tastes good. The sauce is from Costco and tastes great. I like the fact it's in a glass jar instead of a can and the only ingredient I am unhappy with is the calcium chloride. This was recently added to the ingredient list so I may have to look for another brand :( The sausage are great tasting and not too bad for ingredients. I prefer local sausage but couldn't get any this time. These do have added sugar but it isn't really high and the other ingredients are not too bad. I like that when you cut them up you can actually see the bits of cheese and peppers in the sausage :) The Parmesan cheese is from the deli section of the grocery store. I stopped buying cheese from the cheese aisle as most of those seem to be more processed and often have added colours and other ingredients. I read the ingredient list and go for simple.
So, even though I try to eat less processed foods I still eat things from packages and boxes. It's not all from scratch 100% of the time and this works for me :) I do read ingredient lists and try to make better choices.
