Tag: high protein pasta



I can polish off a bowl of pasta in nanoseconds. There used to be a place in Tarzana called Cecile’s Fresh Pasta Plus, and I’d go to town, first with their¬†garlic rolls, and then with¬†their¬†four cheese¬†or¬†arrabiata¬†penne. But, I’d leave bloated and¬†lethargic. My love for pasta has continued from childhood but so has¬†my sensitivity to it. Which is why Cybele’s Lentil pasta is my new found love!

It’s easy to make, tastes great and packs a nutritional punch – and most importantly, my kids devour it! I’m always looking for healthier pasta alternatives so if I find a high protein pasta (that is also gluten free and vegan!), it’s a go! These are perfect for the health-minded pasta lover like me¬†since it’s free from the top 8 allergens!

I love the texture of this and there is none of that fishy smell that comes with those shirataki¬†low carb noodles. This is made of kale, spinach, broccoli and lentil and rocks out with 25 grams of protein. Just boil it in water for about 7 minutes ‚ÄĒ and throw on any delicious¬†marinara, pesto or butter sauce. Holy yum.

This is often my go-to sauce. It’s full of Vitamin C and my kids love it!

Like all¬†working moms, I’m always in a hurry to throw something together for dinner after work for the kids. I’m exhausted, I have no time — but I don’t want to give them mac n cheese or something no bueno for their health. So I give them a high protein pasta like this one. Pasta for their cravings and protein for their brain and body growth! Yup. You’re welcome…and enjoy!
