Pasta doesn’t have to be off the menu when wanting to follow a healthy lifestyle. At The Healthy Mommy we believe that carbs are an essential part of a healthy balanced diet, and can help you achieve weight loss success.

The key is to watch your portion sizes and use reduced-fat, high protein ingredients to keep you feeling fuller for longer. And where possible opt for heart-healthy wholegrain pasta.

Here are our Top 10 must try Healthy and DELICIOUS Weight Loss Friendly Pasta Recipes.

Kerrie O’Brien says “Before The Healthy Mommy I used to avoid all carbs and especially pasta, thinking it would bloat me up or make me gain weight.
Growing up as a teen and adult in the 80’s & 90’s past and carbs were made to be the enemy in the media.
But Healthy Mommy has taught me that carbs can be good and I just need to make them healthy carbs.
I now eat pasta nearly every week sometimes even every day. I just use either wholegrain pasta, gluten free pasta or quinoa pasta instead of white regular pasta now.
I have lost over 61lbs from eating healthy carbs & pasta in my meals each week. I love that with Healthy Mommy we don’t have to cut out food groups or feel deprived!

9. Family Friendly Tuna and Vegetable Pasta Bake
