5 tips for Better Pasta

Sometimes it's the only thingI have the energy to make, and it's always going to be gobbled up so it's a shoo in for a tired Friday night, end of the weekend, or playdate for a big crew. But often it's not really giving kids much in the way of nutrients they need so badly. So I'm sharing my top 5 tips for making pasta that bit more nutrient full and we can all whip it up and not feel like we're just filling them up with no added goodness.
  1. Switch Pastas - There are so many out there now that add a greater variety of minerals and nutrients to their diet than another plate of wheat. Try wholewheat, brown rice, quinoa, rice, corn and other varieties that are all over the supermarkets now.
  2. Al Dente - Cooking pasta until it's really soft means it is immediately absorbed into the blood stream and can cause more of a blood glucose spike, so keep it with a little bite to it and you automatically make it a lower glycemic index food.
  3. Combine it with vegetable noodles. Use a spiralizer, or ribbons with a potato peeler, and make half pasta, half vegetables, courgette, sweet potato, carrots, all work really well. Start by adding a few strands and work up to half/half. You'll be amazed to see them gobbling a whole courgette in one sitting!
  4. Use it as a vehicle for tons of vegetables and sauces. Pestos, greens, broccoli and cauliflower are some of the things we pulse up and add in to make it a really great way of upping the vitamin and mineral intake. See Creamy Broccoli Pasta
  5. Adding in protein, in a meat sauce or carbonara makes it more filling and higher in B Vitamins.

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
