This recipe is a pasta from the basics.
we all love pasta, especially my son.
Pasta with Home Made tomato sauce is super healthy and yummy. A bonus is the extra minerals like selenium, magnesium and Omega 3-6 fatty acids when we use fresh ingredients.

Veggies: steam broccoli or fresh veg. of choice max 8 min.

Trasfer to a pot and warm up to 40 degr. before serving. A Secret for you who read this post: warming up raw food to 40 degr. increases the ability to absorb nutrients x10 !!

-sidedish: paprika & celleri with Cashewcheese:

– Pasta – there is an amazing variety of bean pasta’s available these days. Try them out! I love the taste and they are great. They are made of lentils. chickpeas or other wholegrains. A glutenfree variety can support the body ‘s detoxification.

– Decorate your sauce with sea salted olives, or radish when in season. Get your olives in water, dark glass jar (DO avoid metal canned, i really love italian speciality shops that have these great quailty olives). too complicated? Try avocados, always a good cholce of healthy fats. Olives are rich in magnesium and radish are rich in sulfor, silicon and folic acid which are beauty mineral.
