Edamame pasta offers fewer simple carbs than regular pasta!
Many people simply adore pasta. They love spaghetti and fettuccine covered in tomato sauce, white sauce, pesto, and so much more! But is there a healthier alternative to traditional pasta?
Simple carbohydrates like those found in white flour, pasta, and rice, can lead to weight gain. Why? One of the reasons is because they crowd out food that is more nutritious. Some also believe that the way we digest simple carbohydrates can make us hungry soon after eating them. So, the end result is that you eat more.
Also, simple carbs found in traditional pasta can cause your blood sugar to spike. A quick increase in blood sugar is not considered healthy.
One way to eat the pasta you love, but not deal with these issues, is to try edamame pasta! Because this type of pasta is made from complex carbohydrates rather than simple carbohydrates, they won’t cause a quick spike in blood sugar. Edamame pasta is not made from white flour. Rather, edamame is a green vegetable and a soybean, which is rich in protein and very nutritious.
This soybean is gluten-free, wheat-free, and naturally low in calories. It also contains no cholesterol and is high in protein, iron, and calcium!
We tried Seapoint Farms Organic Edamame Pasta and loved it! We simply tossed their edamame fettuccine with fresh heirloom tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. And voila, a delicious and nutritious dinner was ready in about 30 minutes!
As Seapoint Farms products are all vegan, it was great to know we could serve their pasta to all of our vegan friends too as they contain no animal products or bi-products of any kind. And their pastas are all non-GMO, too!
So if you are looking to escape the bloat of eating too much white flour pasta, why not try edamame pasta instead? Your body will thank you for it!
