Pasta is one of the most common foods eaten in the American society. It is a comfort and filling food in warm dishes or even cold. It's also one of the most sought after gluten free replacement meals when you ask most people diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Pasta and bread I'd admit with regret though are foods that we crave, ahh!
I eat pasta monthly maybe more often pending my social calendar. Pasta typically just isn't healthy for us on a dull day. As a kid I learned how to eat my carbs and proteins more often during 2-3 days prior to my activity sporting calendars. I was active in futbol (soccer), basketball and baseball games. I would load up on pastas ahead of time to keep myself. While that worked for me as a kid as I got older and diagnosed Celiac Disease as young teenager I ate mostly salads, rice and meat, a whole ton of it. Pasta was pretty rare since there weren't much healthy or tasty corn or rice options.
I met Brian Rudolph, co-founder of Banza Pasta, and he is also on a gluten free lifestyle journey. He was able to start Banza pasta in his kitchen before starting to take this out much larger to grow retail distribution forming a business. His team of gluten and non gluten-free peeps have tasted Banza with nearly every type of pasta recipe and it meets high standards. Chickpea pasta from Banza is legit!
I've introduced Banza to family and friends and it was 100% approved. Gluten free or not Banza pasta was receiving accolades from mom, dad and beyond. I've bought multiple boxes already and glad to have a new pasta option that is healthier overall, higher in protein, and I could feel good about eating pasta again more often. Macaroni salad here I come hmm!
2X PROTEIN THAN TRADITIONAL PASTA
There is no need to over eat proteins, but when you're active and focussed on eating healthy foods with balanced nutrients such as protein, you're eating smarter. Only eat what you're going to use though, be active!
