RECIPE: Creamy Avocado Pasta with Sautéed Mushrooms

Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C,K, folate, and B6. Half an avocado has 160 calories, 15 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and only 2 grams saturated fat. One globe contains more than one-third daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K. 

With that much goodness, how can I not add that into a meal!

I've come across this recipe in many websites and have always wanted to try it. There are some that requires nutritional yeast, but I'm trying to not make such drastic changes (and I don't have nutritional yeast on hand). In the end, I looked at several recipes and mixed and match to what ingredients I have. 

Presenting: Creamy Avocado Pasta with Sautéed Mushrooms

About Me

A 20-something year old lady residing in the little red dot called Singapore. Like most women (irregardless where you are from), I have a love-hate relationship with my body. Sometimes I love my body the way it is.. But I can hate it instantly because someone (society, in general) will remind me how I’m not skinny enough.
This blog is started to allow me to be accountable to myself for my journey to a FITTER & HEALTHIER me.
I am trying to attain a healthy lifestyle. Something that will be sustainable for me in the long run. I know this, and have managed to start exercising. In fact, I am a certified Zumba Instructor who does Zumba sessions after my working hours (yes, I still have a full-time job).
In lieu of the New Year (2013), I have decided to start this blog to make me more accountable about what I do.
Of course, being the diva that I am.. Here’s to Health & Fitness with PAZZAZ…
