Eat better, not less.
If you love pasta but still want to eat healthy, the alternatives have bordered on pathetic ... until lately. A Swiss firm (Edamama) has developed a new kind of pasta, made from 100% organic beans, that contains 4 times less carbs than traditional pasta and comes with unbelievable nutritional benefits. The noodles are called 'Edamama'.
Traditional pasta contains a lot of unhealthy carbs that, when eaten, your body turns into sugar immediately. Your blood sugar level rises and shortly after, you're feeling the urge to eat again - although you've just had a meal. With Edamama pasta, those unhealthy carbs get replaced by relying on only one ingredient: 100% organic beans.
Beans are incredibly nutritious and contain a combination of slow energy-releasing and naturally high amounts of fiber and protein. Thus, they keep your body fueled longer and satisfy your appetite.
The result? You naturally lose weight, without ever feeling hungry.
Despite the incredible health benefits of beans (bean-based protein contains all essential amino acids that the body needs), they have been tricky to fit into everyday meals ... until now. We've tried the new noodles and they actually (almost) taste and act like pasta. They won’t go mushy on you. Plus, they come in four different variants (different bean sorts).
Here are the nutrition facts of just one serving ... incredible 68% protein!:
One major downfall to this nutritious pasta alternative? It’s pricey. However, one serving contains a nutritional value that is many times higher than that of traditional pasta, so you cannot really compare it. Plus, the company offers welcome packages (see end of page!) at the moment where you can get all four pasta variants in just one box.
Our recommendation? Try to switch 3-4 meals a week with pasta made from beans and you will already notice the benefits - you will feel lighter on your feets and more energized to tackle an active lifestyle.
