THAI-STYLE BEEF AND PASTA

Just when there's so much important information about Trans Fat...Sat. Fat...and of course we have been involved with the Low-Fat...Low Carb food education; I think the best way is to be informed, involved, but don't let it make you crazy to follow and go overboard on either one. Be sensible and know your food products which are good, or bad for you.

Trans fat can impact your heart more than any type of fat
No matter how many calories you eat per day, the amount of trans fat you should eat remains constant: as little as possible. Since avoiding trans fats altogether is difficult, the American Heart Association recommends that no more than 1 percent of your daily calories come from trans fats. On an 1,800-calorie diet, you should consume no more than 18 calories per day in the form of trans fats. Since fat contains 9 calories per gram, this equals 2 grams of trans fat per day.

Aglio Olio-Garlic and Oil Pasta

I have making Aglio Olio-Garlic and Oil Pasta for years...never, but ever, had I used anchovy fillets; it could be for the reason, that this is one of those 'hand-me-down' recipes that is by 'word of mouth' and only needs basic every day ingredients.
I own several Rachel Ray cookbooks...six, to be exact, and they are all 30 minutes or less meals. All of these cookbooks, except for 1...I paid 79 cents @Goodwill. They are all paperback, and all new books. One book which I got recently, was $3.00...also, from Goodwill. Yesterday, when I was checking out the cookbooks; even the paperback cookbook of Rachel Ray, was $5.00...still, a lot less than the retail price of $14.95. Prices have gone up on books at Goodwill...and now, they are selling their cookbooks @Amazon.com for probably less, and you would have to pay another $3.99 for shipping charge, as well. Although, if you buy $25.00 or more at Amazon; shipping is 'free'!

I'm so glad that I browsed through Rache…
