💭 Top tipI prefer to use "smart pasta" because I find that it cooks faster than the whole wheat but you still get 4X as much fibre than if you ate white pasta. Although it's not quite as healthy as the whole wheat, you are still getting that fibre. And if you're not a fan of whole wheat, it's a good alternative.
