At One Green Planet, we love recipes of all kinds, from decadent cakes and brownies to raw desserts to zucchini pasta carbonara to warm, bubbly lasagna. But today, we’re celebrating our love of carbs and all the wonderful, foods that come with it. It doesn’t matter if they come from whole foods, fruit, and grain-based recipes or a whole lot of bread and pasta — our taste buds don’t discriminate when it comes to carbs.
