FOODDAY- Cream-less Carbonara

The other week I posted on my blogs facebook page that I was thinking of posting recipes on the blog with a good response I decided to go ahead with it. So now Friday is Foodday and will be hosting a new recipe each week. 

Each recipe will include all nutritional information, I am using My Fitness Pal App to calculate it, most of my ingredients are from Aldi or Tesco.

The recipe can be altered to your own taste, more or less vegetables can be added, I like to use smoked bacon but pancetta or ham or turkey bacon can be used. For more protein Chicken can also added. Depending on how much sauce you want more eggs can be used I just cut mine down due to the low calorie intake I am on.
