Nutritionist and R.D. Keri Gans Advocates for Pasta in U.S. News & World Report

Nutritionist and R.D. Keri Gans Advocates for Pasta in U.S. News & World Report In the recent U.S. News & World Report article, “I Eat French Fries and I'm Proud of It,” Barilla Pasta Advisory Council Member, Keri Gans, R.D. advocates for pasta as part of a healthy and balanced diet: “Yes, I eat carbs. Yes, I love pasta. And no, pasta doesn't make you fat. Actually, pasta can be a healthy addition to your diet. According to a National Health and Nutrition Examination survey, people who ate pasta or noodles tended to have a slightly improved diet quality overall; for example, they often consumed more dietary fiber than those who avoided pasta. Also, the ever-popular Mediterranean diet, which research has shown to be heart-protective, includes pasta.” In the article, Keri recommends tossing pasta with olive oil, vegetables and lean proteins such as grilled shrimp and legumes.
