Fried White Fish & Pasta Meal


High Fiber and Protein

Americans, overweight or not, are told to avoid pasta for the simple reason that pasta is made from high starch refined white flour. It doesn’t matter that millions of people around the world eat pasta or other form of high starch grain daily without gaining weight. It is simpler telling people to eliminate a food from their diet than explaining how to incorporate a food into a healthy diet. This is one example.

570 calorie Fish and Pasta Meal

It’s one thing making a meal out of pasta the way many Americans eat pasta, and enjoying a little pasta as part of a complete meal the way Italians eat pasta.

Even so-called healthy frozen meals is nothing but white pasta with a lot of tomato sauce. The meal may only have 300 calories, but all you get is pasta and sauce or meat sauce. Instead of 10 ounces of pasta and tomato sauce for some frozen meals, this meal has about 5.5 ounces of pasta with a turkey sausage and beef sauce. The pasta provides 180 calories in this 570 calorie meal.
