With Hollywood’s hottest women all boasting gluten-free diets, it sure does seem like there is method to their madness.
We’re talking Zooey Deschanel, Miley Cyrus, Victoria Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow, to name but a few.
Sure, we would all love to look like them but when the other option is eating a big bowl of spaghetti Bolognese and a slab of garlic bread… is giving it all up really worth it?
Thankfully, we now no longer have to make that choice.
Pasta with benefits’ has just been launched by the family-owned company, Leaves.
The company is run by husband and wife, Nico Oliveri and Sabine Hobbel. Sabine is a Dutch elite athlete and health researcher and her husband is an Italian chef who was determined to find a suitable pasta alternative after he discovered he had a wheat intolerance.
And their answer was the world’s first pasta with benefits. Made of entirely chickpeas and buckwheat, it contains 50 percent more protein and three times more fibre than regular pasta.
It is also the only pasta in the world that can provide all the essential amino-acids as well as being high in 10 key minerals and vitamins.
Finally, a pasta that we can enjoy and not feel guilty (or bloated) about afterwards.
It can be purchased online or in select Supervalu and specialty stores throughout the country.
