Something you don’t hear in the diet scene too often, is that pasta could just be a missing ingredient in your weight-loss plan…

Yes, it’s carbs! Yes, it’s comfort food! Yes, it can be ‘abused’ and add mountains of calories to your daily intake, BUT… with a healthy sauce, decent portion control, and high-quality products, you don’t have to completely give up pasta on a weight-loss diet.

Here are some reasons why:

1. It’s made from good stuff

Good quality pasta is made from high-quality grain.

Grain is an integral part of a healthy human diet that would include vegetables, fruits, unprocessed starches and legumes, nuts and seeds, and also some eggs, poultry, fish meat and dairy. Grains can aid in digestive wellness, and provide energy to get you through the day.
