A minimum of 3 meals a day is recommended for all adults and children and it is no secret that eating the same thing, again and again, gets rather monotonous and boring. Experimenting with food is a concept that generated out of this boredom for limited eating options. Many try to recreate the same dishes every other day with a little bit of tweaking or added flavors and others succumb to eating out at restaurants.
Eating good and eating healthy is a very difficult combination to achieve at times. But both can be managed simultaneously by switching between some obvious options that are available at the altar. There can be days when a heavy high-calorie meal can opt and some other days when a low-fat and low-carb alternative can be used in its place. Using daily meal ingredients like rice, pasta, noodle, etc., we can create pretty tasty and fulfilling meals at home without having to give in to unhealthy junk food options for taste.
While pasta has always been kept out of a health freak’s diet plan, it remains a pretty popular ingredient among the daily menu of a household. There are many kinds and shapes pasta available in the market and they serve their own purposes. While normal penne or spaghetti pasta brings in a lot of calories and carbs, options like black bean pasta, durum wheat pasta, Konjac soybean pasta, etc. comes with a power-packed and nutritious punch to them. High in protein and fiber, these alternatives taste equally amazing and make sure that all the essential nutrients are supplied to the body.
Probably the most versatile item in the kitchen after salt, rice is a dish that can be paired with anything and everything. It can be eaten with a normal pasta sauce or sautéed with vegetables for a quick meal. Generic white rice, however, is very high in carbohydrates and hence not a good option for daily consumption if a healthy diet is attempted to be maintained. Alternatives like Tasty Bite organic brown rice, Clearspring gluten-free brown rice or Biona Brown Rice is a good option to incorporate rather than consuming white rice. For additional unconventional flavors, pick something like Organic brown rice miso or Biona Black Venus rice.
Leave the conventional option of refined wheat noodles. Due to courtesy of Japan, we have plenty of healthy options in front of us with which even something like noodles can be enjoyed as a healthy and tasty daily meal. Konjac noodles from Europe Pty and Clearspring Gluten-free noodles are the perfect choice for the healthy diet plan. Pair these two and similar ones with Clearspring Organic instant noodle broth and you have a rather healthy and tasty meal in front of you every day with the same earthy, familiar taste.
