Here Are Five Reasons to Switch to Brown Rice and Pasta

1. It tastes better. unpolished rice and pasta have flavour. It doesn’t actually need a sauce to taste good, although a healthy and hearty sauce really does make the meal. My favourite is a mix of cottage cheese and crushed tomatoes for a high protein pasta sauce. It tastes so creamy you would never guess it was good for you.

2. Brown rice and pasta are a protein source. Between 5-12g of protein per serving!

3. High in fiber. It’s tough to get 20-30 grams of fiber a day but a serving of either brown pasta or rice covers over 30% of daily recommended intake.

4. It’s filling. The complex carbohydrates in brown and whole grain food make you feel fuller, longer. When you eat white food you get hungry again really soon. Even if you ate a big meal.

5. More vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. You should always get the most out of a meal as you can.

Sometimes it can be hard to make the switch. Start slowly by changing one thing at a time. It could be just your pasta or just the bread you make your sandwich with for lunch. Soon you will wonder how you ever ate white over unpolished rice in the first place.
