Guilt free pesto fettuccine

IMG_6009I dont know about you but I am a carb lover! Pasta, rice, bread… mmmm… who doesnt love carb?! I’m actively seeking carb substitution because too much carb is not very beach body friendly! Lets face it, it is so easy to chow down a big bowl of pasta and regret it later :p

Today I picked up this bag of organic edamame and mung bean fettuccine from Explore Asian. It is high in protein and fiber, and it is low in carb and sodium. It is certified gluten free, organic, non GMO and vegan!

Organic edamame and mung bean fettuccine Screen Shot 2015-10-23 at 9.35.55 PMmay not sound all that great but it is delicious!!! It taste just like string mozzarella cheese!!! You do not taste the edamame nor the mung bean. This delicious fettuccine has 24 gram of protein and 11 gram of fiber per serving. This fettuccine not only taste delicious, it is easy and fast to cook.

Today I decided to make guilt free pesto fettuccine with Basiltop Habanero pesto. It got some kick to it 😉
