Final Thoughts

I’m always looking for a way to improve my recipe in creating a new nutritious recipe (especially one that is based on something that is as popular as this recipe). )… It has to be as delicious as, if not better as the full fat, full-calorie version.

I believe that everything Italian food is better by homemade sauce. It’s true that I am Italian so I be sure of this. But I also can assure you that marinara sauce with jared won’t ruin the dish.

Here are my recommendations for purchasing store-bought marinara sauce

ALWAYS get organic! The cost difference is small However, the preservative-laced products are not great for weight loss or health.

Be sure to look for preservatives and steer clear of them.

Make sure to look to find “Low Sugar” not “Sugar Free.” Sugar-free typically is a reference to synthetic sugars… which is why I see the hairs on your back. There is sugar in tomato sauce sold in stores. sauce, but there’s a lot of it! Be aware and check the warning labels.

The great thing… is that once you’ve found an in-store marinara sauce that is 100% organic and healthy it is easy to keep buying it. You can also stock up at times when it’s in sale!

Recipe #2

The Italian-American classic typically has a lot of oil, an overabundance of cheeseas well as a large spaghetti with a lot of carbs as the basis. We fry a small portion of chicken to reduce the soakage of oil, and then add fresh mozzarella (which has less energy and calories than the other varieties of cheeses) to finish it off. As for sides, swap the spaghetti bed with fresh sauteed garlic spinach.

Eat This Tip

Chicken Parm is usually prepared by shallow-frying the breaded chicken in a pan. This is exactly what we’ve done here. But, if you’d like to reduce energy and time with only the slightest compromise in taste, you can skip the saute pan altogether and go with an oven. Cook the breasts of chicken in a 400 degree oven until the crust turns brown and meat becomes soft in about 15 minutes.
