I LOVE PASTA! There are ways of getting away with indulging on pasta, by making some healthier choices/changes.

Making a few changes in some standard ingredients can make a huge difference not only in the calories, but also in the nutrition that you can get from a meal. For example, when it comes to pasta and choosing a healthier option, go for spelt pasta. Spelt contains protein, dietary fiber & vitamins. It also more water-soluble when compared to common wheat, making it easier to digest.
