SUMMARY

 

Dig into wholemeal pasta! It's delicious, satisfying and filling. Best of all it's packed with fiber. In recent years the quality of wholemeal pasta has improved considerably without sacrificing nutritional benefits. Wholemeal pasta is made from flour that uses the entire grain seed and contains more protein than refined-wheat pasta (white). Broccoli is also fiber-rich, which enhances the gastro intestinal tract, as well as aims to reduce blood cholesterol levels.
