Nutrition Tip of the Day - January 22, 2011

nutrition tips

Today's Nutrition Tip:

Switch to whole grain pasta. The average pasta is made from refined white flour and contains little to no fiber.  In contrast, whole grain pasta contains 5 or more grams of fiber in a serving.  Whole grain fiber does have a slightly nutty taste and a different texture. If this is not to your liking, be sure to look for the white whole grain varieties. An alternative would be to start by using a mixture of half regular pasta and half whole wheat pasta. You can increase the amount of whole wheat pasta as you become accustomed to the taste.
