White and whole wheat pasta both contain gluten; a protein that is not all that friendly to the human body.
Also, these have a high glycemic index which means that they are easily converted into sugar.
Sugar then causes your pancreas to secrete insulin and too much insulin in the body can cause a multitude of health problems.
So here are a couple of healthy pasta-eating tips…
Cook your pasta al dente – the harder it is, the lower the glycemic index.
Foods that have a low glycemic index are healthier foods & better for you.
Choose gluten-free pasta or rice pasta.
These are much healthier for you.
Pasta is best when eaten as a lunch dish or before athletic activity.
This way you will burn off the calories that it provides.
Having a large amount of pasta for your dinner-time meal will just cause weight gain, bold sugar issues & stress on your heart.
Think light & eat right – smaller portions more frequently throughout the day will work much better for you.
