Recipe: Gemelli with Zucchini Meatballs

Gemelli with zucchini meatballs on a slate backgroundThis recipe is from The Cookbook How Not To Diet. Don’t let the length intimidate you. It’s as easy to make as it is delicious. I like to make the meatballs and sauce in advance so that their flavors unfold even better. When I’m not in the mood for chimichurri sauce, I replace my favorite salt-free marinara.

During my medical school I saw her decline and the effects of Alzheimer’s on her, but my newfound knowledge was useless at the time.

Volunteer spotlight: Tamara Amor

“I started working as a translator at NutritionFacts.org almost two years ago. I’ve been on the WFPB diet for four years, but I’ve always had an interest in nutrition and research. I am constantly on the lookout for the best ways to feed our bodies while being environmentally friendly at the same time, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to be part of this lovely team to keep doing so.

I’m a really tasty person, so I’d say my favorite recipe for WFPB is any BIG Salad with Legumes, Roasted Vegetables, and Quinoa or Rice. I could eat that every day, especially if it contains a tahini dressing or hummus! “
