        I watch my salt intake. How much salt does it take to release the

    I’ve recently started watching how I eat. I knew I had to cut the sugar, flour, bread, and pasta out of my diet. It’s going to be a huge transition but finding ways to replace high carb noodles with healthy veggies will lesson the drawbacks of cutting out things that I love. Thank you for posting this! A person could even make pesto zucchini “pasta.” Ideas, ideas.
