Pasta is the perfect comfort food, and something I crave often. Often, people think that if they are following the 21 Day Fix, pasta is off limits. That is totally not the case!
Pasta is located right on the 21 Day Fix Food List. While traditional white pasta isn’t advised because it’s highly processed, stripped of many nutrients during processing, and can cause spikes in blood sugar. Whole wheat pasta is a less processed complex carb with protein and fiber. You can also use gluten free pasta. Chickpeas, lentils, and brown rice are all on the food list and you can find all of them in noodle form.
Pasta dishes are an easy family friendly meal. Following The 21 Day Fix doesn’t have to be hard, and you don’t have to change everything you’ve done before. In my experience, kids and non-fix family members don’t notice the difference when switching from white pasta to whole wheat or gluten-free.
Sometimes pasta gets ignored because knowing how much to cook can be a pain. I receive a lot of questions from readers about pasta–How much dry pasta is going to fit in my yellow container? What if I make too much, what about if I don’t make enough?
Some pasta doubles or even triples in size, and some stays the same. These Ultimate Portion Fix pasta recipes take the guesswork out of your meal. Every recipe has been tested and has 21 Day Fix container counts right in the post.
