Pasta is a favorite comfort food, it’s quick, easy to cook and always tastes good. But with all those carbs can it be healthy too? The trick is to keep portion sizes under control and add more lean protein and vegetables so you feel satisfied. And skip the regular white pasta, which is made from refined grains. Instead opt for whole-wheat pasta, which has more fiber shown to help you lose weight.
A good source of dietary fiber, whole wheat pasta hasn’t been stripped of the grain’s important trace nutrients and phytochemicals. And now, fortunately for consumers, there are vastly improved, better tasting choices to be found at your grocery store.
