Pasta without the carbs…3 options to get you started!
By Dani Reed – Nutritionist
Everyone has a secret love for a big bowl of pasta…we all know it’s not the healthiest of meals, however there is some good news! There are some amazing gluten free, lower carb, healthier alternatives that can satisfy pasta cravings without the toll on the waist line.
Eco organics make a range of different ‘pastas’ made from things like mung beans, edamame, chickpeas and black beans, providing gluten free, lower carb, options. Great for vegans and people wanting a higher protein alternative.
Slendier calorie clever pastas and noodles are made from konjac…a high fibre, Asian root vegetable. They are great for people following a lower carb diet that still want the pasta texture. Their lasagna noodles are my favourite. Use them with strips of eggplant and zucchini to create an incredible low carb ‘lasagne’. Their range includes spaghetti, fettuccini, angel hair noodles and even rice…they are very versatile and delish!
If you want something a little more like real pasta, that is gluten free and is a little more #wholefood…Olive Green Organic pasta tastes like the real deal. Their pastas are made from grains like rice, amaranth and quinoa, making them a little healthier than regular wheat pasta.
