Why You Should Eat More Pasta November 2, 2017

Why You Should Eat More Pasta, Trumbull, Connecticut

For reasons unsupported by nutritional science, pasta has fallen out of favor in some fitness-centered circles. If you’ve been lamenting the absence of this delightful dish from your diet, it’s time to celebrate—you don’t have to give up Italian food to be healthy. To the contrary, high-quality pasta can provide the healthy fat, vitamins, and fiber your body needs. Read on to clear up common misconceptions about the food that’s been a staple in Italian diets for centuries.

Why Does Pasta Have a Bad Reputation?

PastaThe agricultural revolution brought us grain, but the industrial revolution brought mass-produced grain with little nutritional value. The benefits of eating pasta are determined entirely by the quality of ingredients used in its production. Low quality noodles can cause digestive issues and leave you feeling tired and bloated. Fresh pasta provides healthy fat that helps brains function and bodies absorb valuable vitamins. 

Isn’t Gluten Bad for You?

There is little scientific evidence to support the current theory that eating gluten is unhealthy. Instead, it’s more likely that consuming grains with no nutritional value wreaks havoc on our intestines, creates brain fog, and causes lethargy. If you haven’t actually been tested for gluten intolerance, consider adding high-quality pasta with fresh vegetables to your diet. 

What Type of Pasta Should I Eat?

The best noodles to consume are those that are made fresh, instead of dried. It’s simple to make your own pasta, even without a machine. For those who’d rather eat out than cook at home, a reputable Italian restaurant will gladly serve up delightful culinary creations—and even do the dishes afterwards!
