Eating pasta without guilt


Forget the low carb diets. I’m just not one of those people that can hang with something like that. While I do watch the types of carbs I put into my body, and strive to make them healthier choices that I make, I just can’t give up my pasta. Granted, when I do eat it, I always go with the healthiest choice, I go with the whole grain or whole wheat pasta’s over the white. What I do need in my diet though, is more fiber. I’ve been striving to find ways to get more fiber into my diet besides relying on just vegetables alone.

A while back I wrote up a review on some really yummy Mac & Cheese from Fiber Gourmet. Mac & Cheese that was not only good, but made me feel better when feeding it to my kids, and was something I was able to eat as well as it was low in calories and high in fiber. Well Fiber Gourmet is at it again with some more high fiber, low calorie pastas.

I recently was able to try some of their new pasta shapes. The Light Penne and Light Rotini shapes are just like classic pasta, except without the high calories and with more fiber! Each serving is 130 calories which is 40% fewer than standard pasta. You’ll also find each serving to have 18g of fiber, which is a whopping 72% of the daily value of fiber required. Their packages come in ½ lb weight and carry a 2 year shelf life. They’re also Kosher certified, they have 40% fewer ‘net carbs’ than standard pasta, and for those of you on weight watchers, only 2 points per serving (standard pasta is 4 and whole wheat is 3).

I’m a huge fan of Fiber Gourmet pasta’s; they taste great and are healthy not only for you but your entire family. There’s really no difference in the taste between this pasta and your standard pasta, I couldn’t tell the difference, neither could any member of my family including my picky children. It’s nice to know that even while dieting and watching my calorie intake there is an alternative out there that allows me to eat the pasta I want, when I want without the guilt.
