There are many veggie pasta options, but oftentimes, they are just made with some of the pigmentations to appear healthier than they really are.
There's one exception… Banza! Made with chickpeas and thus chock full of fiber and protein, Banza is a staple in our house. This pasta has 25% fewer net carbs and 50% more protein than traditional pasta!
Pasta traditionally has about 7 grams of protein per serving. Barilla's Protein+ line delivers all the benefits of classic pasta with an added boost of protein and double the fiber!
Protein helps regulate blood sugar and contributes to increased feelings of fullness, so this product is a huge win in our book!
Whole wheat pasta is certainly the heartiest choice. With 5 grams of fiber per serving, it's hard to find a healthier option on the shelves.
Jovial's whole wheat pasta is made from an ancient wheat variety called einkorn wheat. This type of wheat is significantly less modified than newer, more conventional wheat varieties and tends to be low in gluten.
Regular pasta gets a bad rep, but did you know even white pasta still contains 2 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein per serving? Not too shabby if you ask me.
I love classic Italian brands if I am opting for the real thing like De Cecco. Pair these classics with a lean protein option, a light sauce, and tons of colorful veggies for a balanced meal!
Most gluten-free pasta is actually quite low in fiber and often turns to mush when overboiled—not Ancient Harvest! Ancient Harvest offers a blend of starchy, gluten-free grains that create your beloved pasta taste and texture.
Our preferred option is their corn, brown rice, and quinoa blend.
