The basis of our culinary tradition, pasta have been considered for many years the true enemy of light and diet rich in fiber. What a suffering for us Italians, we have done our flag penne and spaghetti in the world …
Nothing could be more wrong: we now know that abolishing the pasta would be a mistake, and then rediscover it without feeling guilty pleasure of enjoying to the full a taste of the dishes most appreciated not only by the Italians, but by the whole world!
The goal that I would achieve by writing this article is to reassess the dough and give directions to make it a valuable ally:
- Of bowel
- The good mood.
Yes, you read right: spaghetti are a kind of natural antidepressant. Complex carbohydrates (extended release), is indeed a good source of tryptophan, the precursor of serotonin, and thus “stimulate” the good mood. My advice is to sincerely make use of tryptophan as well as by specific food or through supplements. Obviously, for a healthy balanced diet should adhere to some basic rules:
- First trick, the portions: 60-70 grams, but not more than 80
- Secondly, the daily flow: one, preferably at lunch
- Third secret, the most important seasonings.
In fact what really makes you fat pasta are added fat. If you like pesto and carbonara, you will have a reason to do with it: it is time to change tastes and discover new approaches … to make the dough the queen of your diet! Among the mistakes to avoid, the most common is to combine spaghetti and cheese: a mix of ingredients that gives heaviness and bloating and significantly increases calorie intake.
Condiments ideals are those based on fresh tomatoes, but also vegetables, fish, mushrooms and more: all ingredients that contribute to increasing the quantity of fiber in the pot, without depriving them of the pleasure of pasta, with a covenant not to exceed l ‘ Oil: Better keep it aside “to flavor the salad that follows.
Another important choice concerns the type of spaghetti that you make using a pasta extruder:
the lighter is full (from 80 grams a serving provides 259 calories), which thanks to its fiber satiating and detoxication is suited not only lose weight but mainly to achieve effective “response” gut. The combination best, what provides the body with all essential amino acids, is with vegetables or legumes pasta to 5 grains, however, is shown to vary the quality of food brought to the table and reduce the risk of intolerance to wheat. Contains 273 calories per serving (more than 80 grams), and you can dress with:
fish (can be considered as a main course, followed by vegetables and fruit)
vegetables of all kinds (grilled, boiled or raw-never fried) vegetables, but is also excellent with simple tomato sauce
who do not want to forego the traditional tastes, there’s the classic white wheat pasta, perfect even in the case of colitis. Brings 285 calories a dish. Order not to “shoot-off” too, the ideal is dressed with a light sauce, such as garlic oil and chilli
in case of intolerance to gluten, but also for bloating, a good alternative is rice pasta. Light (269 calories) and a delicate flavor, it should be tested with sauces enriched with spices and herbs.
Finally, to be reserved for special occasions, here is the egg pasta: perfect with mushrooms, smoked salmon or meat sauce, is pretty caloric (294 kcal per 80 grams) is contraindicated for those with high levels of cholesterol in the blood. Better concedersela rarely … so will be even more flavor! Keep in mind that this type of pasta tends to double its volume when cooked, so the quantity can be safely reduced. Not by chance, is sold in packs of 250 grams and not 500 as the traditional packages of spaghetti, macaroni and other non-egg pasta
