Pasta & Mediterranean Diets
Pasta tossed with other healthy ingredients is an easy way to follow a balanced Mediterranean diet—considered by nutritionists to be one of the world’s healthiest ways to eat.
Without pasta, balanced Mediterranean diets would be missing out on the complex carbohydrates and naturally low glycemic index of pasta. Digesting pasta spreads out the food's energy, keeping your body sustained over a longer period of time. Coupled with protein, vitamins, minerals, and other necessary foodstuffs, pasta becomes a healthy means of powering you through the day, no matter your age or line of work. This pasta diet is especially beneficial to children, who will learn how to eat well starting at a young age if you begin instilling positive nutrition in them.
