Love carbs? We recommend these five easy recipes to satisfy your carbs cravings.
1. Spaghetti Bolognese
While the Bolognese sauce originated from Italy, Spaghetti Bolognese is pretty much unheard of in the country. Interestingly, the dish is notably more popular in other parts of Europe, as well as North America, Australia and New Zealand. As a meat-based dish, minced beef is commonly used as part of the sauce, but if beef is not to your liking, you can always replace it with chicken or lamb. This dish is classic, delicious, and made easier with a thermal cooker, which allows you to slow cook while you finish other tasks on hand.

2. Beanie Rice
This dish is all about the beans! Wildly different but works perfectly well together, the mix of beans gives you all the nutrients and vitamins you need. Green beans boast high fibre content and protein; kidney beans are an excellent source of manganese (an attribute to healthy bone structure); and black beans give you the necessary nutrients such as potassium and vitamin B6 to support heart health. Couple that with rice packed in a Thermos® Food Jar and you’ll enjoy a warm, healthy and filling lunch!
