Raise your hand if you love pasta! I have good news for you! I've found a high protein, low carb alternative. Explore Asian has reinvented the pasta aisle changing an everyday favorite into a ridiculously healthy and nutritious meal.
You might be thinking…she's crazy.
Don't knock it ‘til you try it! Honestly, when I first bought a package a few months ago I was skeptical but pleasantly surprised! Their products are made with the finest, organic NON-GMO ingredients and are vegan, gluten free, organic and Kosher certified. Oh, and they are ready in under 10 minutes. It's so easy!
You can create new recipes or even try out some of their suggested recipes on the package (or on their website). In an effort to show you more of my meals instead of just food prep, below are a few ways I've incorporated these products into my normal meals.
This week our food prep consisted of the following:
- Honey Chipotle Ground Chicken
- Eat Clean Chicken Salad
- Italian Turkey Burgers
- Sweet-Sweet Potato Cubes
…and we added Explore Asian Organic Edamame Spaghetti and Organic Black Bean Spaghetti.
For a few of my meals I used a serving of the Edamame Spaghetti and mixed it with an Italian Turkey Burger and topped it with fresh pasta sauce. I also added some onion powder on top. It was delicious!
Next, I used the Black Bean Spaghetti and mixed it with the Honey Chipotle Ground Chicken. I think this is one of my favorite meals now!
The nutritional stats on these products are amazing! The Edamame Spaghetti has 24 grams of protein, 11 grams of fiber, and 21 grams of carbs per serving. The only ingredient is organic edamame. The Black Bean Spaghetti has 25 grams of protein, 12 grams of fiber, and 17 grams of carbs per serving. The only ingredient is organic black beans.
Since I was adding additional protein to my meals I didn't use an entire serving of the pasta and it was still very filling!
Wondering where to purchase Explore Asian products? They are available at many Whole Foods, Costco and Fairway stores. Our Costco (Buford, GA) carries the Edamame Spaghetti. Check out the store locator to find a store near you: http://www.explore-asian.com/store-locations
