A big bowl of pasta to come home to in the evening? Don’t mind if I do!
I love to turn to legume based pastas like this product by Explore Asian as they are not only naturally gluten free but also bursting with fibre, additional plant based protein, & I also think they taste better too!
I am often confronted with a tug of war scenario with clients, yes they realise they need to change their dietary habits to remedy certain issues we will have highlighted but what about all the foods they enjoy?
Will they be on salad, green vegetables & plain grilled chicken for the rest of time? I think not…. No, in short simple tweaks like opting for 1 of these versions over a grain based pasta (not that these are entirely bad by any means if whole grain & included appropriately) can offer a totally health goal appropriate alternative to bridge the gap between the familiar & the therapeutic.
And when tossed with all the divine ingredients I’ve paired them with here, well that classic white spaghetti & tomato sauce combination may seem a little less appealing after all…..
