Dinner last night was my favorite meat sauce over steamed broccoli with steamed baby carrots. This sauce is wonderful, and easy to make. I brown lean ground beef and mix it with store-bought “traditional” spaghetti sauce, then add 5-6 cloves of roasted garlic (which I roast, let cool, then puree in a food processor). Its great, I make roasted garlic puree in bulk, because I add it to everything! You can even add it to your favorite low-calorie butter/margarine or olive oil for a garlic-infused taste. Other than its great taste, garlic has many health benefits as well. Allium, which is found in garlic is reported to have cancer-preventative properties. I’ve provided a link relating to garlic’s health benefits below.
I then indulged in my favorite treat of the day (one I often look forward to the whole day), a Skinny Cow ice cream cup. All together, this meal came in at around 650 calories.
