Cooking a Healthier Spaghetti: Organic Shirataki Spaghetti
What’s your favorite comfort food?
If you survey 10 people and ask them what’s their favorite food to eat after a long, frustrating day of work, you’ll get a sizable majority voting for spaghetti.
Spaghetti, like other comfort foods such as pizza or doughnuts, elicits a serotonin, the feel-good neurotransmitter chemical released in the brain that elevates our mood after we eat something satisfying.
Whether we have it with a homemade marinara sauce or a garlic-olive oil blend, spaghetti is indeed fun to eat and often brings the family closer together.
But how do you feel after eating spaghetti? If you’re like most people, you don’t limit yourself to the portion size that nutritionists recommend, say, a fist-sized serving of spaghetti. A fist size? You gotta be kidding! Who has that kind of will power?
Most people are hard-pressed to limit their spaghetti serving size to two big handfulls.
Second- or third helpings are common.
As a consequence, how do most people feel after eating regular spaghetti?
So what to do if you love spaghetti?
Great news! As of March, 2014, Miracle Noodle introduces Organic Shirataki Spaghetti!
Now you can cook your favorite spaghetti dishes without the guilt.
Here are some guidelines to cook a quick, healthy spaghetti meal using Miracle Noodle Organic Spaghetti.
--use low-sugar sauces
--dry roast the spaghetti
--add fresh whole basil leaves; add them in during the last minute or two of cooking
--add broccoli as it contains lots of antioxidants, has a huge crunch factor and fiber to help you feel full
--add pine nuts for extra protein
--add pink Himalayan sea salt, a healthier version of salt than white (processed table salt)
--add kelp flakes (available at natural markets) which is an excellent source of iodine
The possibilities are endless. Drizzle with a healthy oil like olive or avocado. Also optional is to add a tablespoon of coconut oil for a rich flavor. These oils are healthy fats and will also help you feel full and prevent cravings, unlike regular pasta.
