Here at Malta Development, we love food that is simple to make and good for our bodies. That's why today, we're bringing you a quick, painless and mouthwatering spaghetti recipe. Instead of drenching the white flour spaghetti variety in Alfredo or marinara sauce, why not go for a healthier alternative? For this recipe, we adorn the dish with fiber-rich, nutrient-dense kale. Fun fact: kale contains almost 20 percent of the recommended daily allowance of dietary fiber in just one cup. Whole-grain spaghetti's nutty flavor and kale's fresh taste combine with garlic and grape tomatoes to make a dish that can become a staple in your weekly dinners.

Super Bowl Sunday may be behind us, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy our share of the delectable buffalo wing flavor. Ever since the inception of Buffalo wings in 1964, the wing craze has spawned a sort of fandom. These spicy appetizers have inspired similarly-flavored products like buffalo flavored chips, popcorn, rolled tacos, and the list goes on. But if you're looking for a less casual variation of the traditional buffalo wing, why not try this spicy Buffalo-style stuffed chicken breast? It has the same great flavor with half the mess.

Who would've thought that a pinch of minuscule black seeds would be so rich in fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants? Chia seeds are a superfood that help prevent cell damage, ease digestion, and fill you up. In fact, just one tablespoon of chia seeds is equivalent to 19 percent of your recommended intake of daily fiber and 7 to 9 percent of the recommended daily value of calcium, iron, and magnesium. That's a great way to start any morning. Chia is a versatile ingredient that you can add to anything from smoothies to puddings and pancakes.
 
Here are three effortless ways to get your chia on.

Meatless Mondays!

[fa icon="calendar'] 1/18/16 9:00 AM / by Malta Development posted in meatless monday, recipe, Recipes

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Are you familiar with Meatless Mondays? The Meatless Monday program began as a way to help people curb their meat consumption by 15%. On average, people eat about 45% more meat per day than the USDA recommended amount . A reduction in meat consumption reduces your risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. On top of that, you decrease your carbon footprint and save resources like fossil fuel and fresh water. For example, production of a single pound of beef requires 2,500 gallons of water.
 
Facts such as these shouldn't completely deter us from meat consumption, but instead, prompt us to go meatless at least one day out of the week. What better day than Monday to start your week off on the right foot? If you're ready to join the movement, here's a lasagna roll and roasted red pepper recipe that's simple, tasty, and filling. It's so good you won't mind the lack of meat.
