This month we are introducing a NEW TED-Ed lesson which explains why Pasta is Good for You.
There is no reason to eliminate or avoid entire food groups, especially ones that supply essential nutrients like carbohydrates. The truth is, complex carbohydrates, like pasta, are more slowly digested, offering the body a steady source of energy.
Plus, healthy pasta meals are a delicious way to eat more vegetables, legumes and other healthy foods often under-consumed.
