Big news! There is a new product that I absolutely know will be very popular with you healthy eaters.
You know by now that I am an advocate of healthy eating and how you can only be really healthy if this is integral in your daily routine. In with green leafy vegetables, dark skinned fruits, avocados, nuts, seeds, juicing…OUT with pasta, bread, grains, wheat, rice, sugar, dairy. You know the list? Healthy eating represents healthy living. Eating any bad food group will contribute towards ill health.
Whilst many of you know the foods to avoid, over the years your feedback has been that at times it gets difficult. So, for the first time I have introduced a food product to our range – one I hope you will enjoy.
WELCOME TO REALLY HEALTHY PASTA!
Really Healthy Pasta is legume (red lentil or black bean) pasta. It’s the latest health food product range to be released by Good Health Naturally and made its debut at The Natural Organic Products Show in London on 19th-20th April 2015.
Free from grains and high in nutrients and fiber content, Really Healthy pastas are unique and healthy because they are made with one simple ingredient: legumes and nothing else. They are the best tasting, healthy alternatives to traditional wheat pasta – without any of the unwanted side effects or negative impact on general health.
Why Legume Pasta?
The gluten-free Really Healthy Pastas are certified organic, vegan, kosher and non-GMO. Along with being an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, legumes are a good source of healthy fibre (This can be missing from many diets).
Each serving of Really Healthy legume pasta has up to 400% more protein per equal serving (about the same as chicken) and is naturally high in fibre. A serving equals a full serving of vegetables and is high in iron (50%), 22g of protein (25%) and 3 ounces of fibre (46%) of your daily recommended values.
The pasta is a nutritious replacement for traditional wheat based, corn, rice or gluten-free pastas. It simply contains purified water and non-GMO red lentils or black beans. It’s also naturally chemically free and hypoallergenic, devoid of the top 10 food allergens*.
The Grain Free Alternative
It’s known that many have coeliac disease and that many more don’t realize they have the condition as only an estimated 1 in 8 have been diagnosed. This suggests there is a growing demand for grain-free really healthy alternatives and that legume pastas fill that need.
A good low Glycemic Index food source (21) of complex carbs, Really Healthy pastas are shown in studies to be a better choice for coeliac sufferers, people with gluten sensitivity, diabetics and heart or stroke survivors.
Legume pasta is great for everyone wanting to make a healthier choice: athletes, children, seniors and those seeking healthy weight loss due to legumes having a low glycemic index. Taking only 10 minutes to cook, legume pastas are easy to prepare, meaning they are excellent for busy people on the go.
Can Even Be Served Raw!
Really Healthy pasta can be made in the same way as pasta or can even be served as a raw dish by soaking in warm water.
The range comes in a wide variety of shapes including Organic Black Bean Rotini, Organic Red Lentil Rotini, Organic Black Bean Penne, Organic Red Lentil Penne, Organic Black Bean Mini Fettucine and Organic Red Lentil Mini Fettucine.
