This is my go-to pasta dish when I’m tired, I don’t really want to cook, but I want something satisfying and healthy. Pasta with Sautéed Spinach and Garlic can be prepared in 20 minutes (as long as you are cooking the pasta as you prep), has an easy clean up and is super delicious! This recipe also lends itself to lots of creativity as you can saute other veggies with the garlic and spinach such as red peppers, cherry tomatoes, onion, broccoli, zucchini or mushrooms. I like it without tomato sauce, but you can add some sauce as well.

“This program is a way of life, one which I have adopted successfully, and more importantly one which I have sustained for over one year now. My weight remains steady at 160 pounds (down from 216). My energy levels rival that of someone 20 years younger than me (I’m now 57), enabling me to exercise in any way that I desire, from lifting weights to intense cardio sessions.”

“After completing my 10-week program, I had a regularly-scheduled appointment with my doctor. Because my cholesterol has always been above the normal range (229 last year) I requested that she test it again this year. I’m happy to report that my total cholesterol dropped to 169, which is in the normal range, and all my other numbers improved as well.”
