Guilty Pleasure of the Day
Looking for a timesaver, I started reading the labels in the pasta sauce aisle. This one does not earn a 100% migraine-safe rating, but if you can tolerate cheeses, it's otherwise pretty close: Kroger Private Selection Creamy Alfredo Sauce. I threw it on some sauteed chicken with some peas and bowtie pasta cooked al dente. I added some fancy olive oil and we had a really delicious meal in no time flat. "But alfredo sauce is so full of calories!" you say. Au contraire - I did the math and if you divide a jar into four servings (instead of the recommended 7), you get 140 calories. Yes, there's some fat in there, but no one ever said that the migraine diet was designed for weight loss. Check it out and maybe you'll have a new favorite shortcut.
