Spelt Spaghetti With Loaded Veg, Garlic, Lemon, Chilli and Sesame Seeds


After a very long and exhausting week my body felt tired and drained definitely in need of a fully loaded  veggie meal packed with all the good stuff to refuel myself. Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage are all super charge veggies. Spelt pasta is low gi and better for digestion. When  I feel like pasta I opt for this kind. Throw them together in a hot pan with some basic flavours of garlic, fresh chilli and lemon tossed through with some sesame and olive oil, yum just what the doctor ordered!
