Good quality 100% whole wheat pasta tossed with garlic, red pepper flakes, parsley. Simple, quick, and delicious. Beet greens and spinach on the side.
Read your “whole wheat” pasta labels. Many advertised and labeled wheat pastas are a combination of whole wheat and regular flour. Realize too that just because the whole wheat kernel was used to make the flour it is still processed by milling. This is obviously necessary to create at flour, and using the whole wheat kernel is preferable to just the endosperm, but it is absorbed in the gut faster than intact “whole grain” wheats like a wheat berry or farro. This means milled grains have a higher glycemic value.
