Is Pasta one of your favorite foods? If you answered yes, you are not alone. You and about 50% of the world’s population is in agreement with you, including me.
Have you given up on Pasta because of the short chain bad carbs, the gluten, the puffie tummie and the insulin spikes? If you answered yes, you are not alone. You, me and a whole heck of a lot of men and women have said bye bye to pasta a long time ago.
But, who doesn’t love pasta? And why should we give up on one of life’s culinary luxuries?
We shouldn’t. So what are the options?
Well, one option is you can forget all your worries and woes with one of the finest Italian imports (next to the Ferrari) and dig right in.
Or, you can occasionally twirl your spoon and fork into that scintillating plate of Angel hair, Rigatoni or Linguine pasta with pesto or any other topping for that matter, as I do.
Is there an option for pasta daily dining?
Yup. And it is called Skinny Pasta.
Now “skinny pasta” sounds like an oxymoron doesn't it, because skinny and pasta really don't go hand-in-hand because traditional pasta is filled with the very bad short chain carbohydrates which leads to weight gain, insulin spikes, and a puffy, rounded tummy!
That's the reason I gave up pasta and probably why you did too.
Skinny Pasta (low carb pasta) is high fiber, low calorie, gluten free, salt free, and zero net carb pasta! What that means to you is you get to eat and enjoy pasta like everyone else, every day if you choose.
And of top of that Skinny Pasta is high-protein and filled with vitamins and minerals. In fact Skinny Pasta contains 15g of protein and only 150 calories per serving. Plus it contains a very special fiber that comes from a Konjac plant (similar to a yam) that helps you feel fuller longer.
So, let's get down to the skinny on Skinny Pasta.
Traditional pasta is made up of white process flour which is loaded with the wrong carbs—refined short chain carbohydrates. That’s why you usually feel sleepy and so full after you eat. Not to mention bloated.
Not so with Skinny Pasta. There is a special ingredient that makes up Skinny Pasta. It is called Glucomannan.
Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber derived from the root of the Konjac plant, a type of yam grown mostly in China. For over 2000 years, Asian people have reaped the health benefits of Glucomannan by using it as a fiber supplement, making sauces and noodles.
Once you eat the Skinny Pasta and the pasta is digested in your tummy, that’s when the Glucomannan/Konjac does its magic. It starts to expand in your stomach and it holds up to 100 times its water weight. What that means to you is it fills you up and gives you the sensation of being full and not being hungry.
So you get a fabulous meal, you feel fuller longer and better yet, you don’t feel sleepy after you eat.
Another benefit of Konjac is something we don't talk about on TV but we will now because this article is on the Internet and that is digestion and elimination. All that fiber is good for you in that it helps you go to the bathroom.
Thats right. The Konjac assists with a complete evacuation of the colon, aka, a nice fulfilling bowel movement.
What I like about eating Skinny Pasta is that I get the sensation of eating pasta without the bad carb down side. A little olive oil and garlic and I am a happy camper!!
Is there a con?
Well….the only con I can see is psychological as you are not really eating traditional pasta. Ok ladies, lets get over that one. No hissie fits or temper tantrums here. I mean really. Skinny Pasta is an alternative that is good for you. And it tastes good too. To me, it tastes like rice pasta with a little lime.
