Healthy High Protein Pasta Noodles

When people think of pasta they immediately think of carbs.  However, pasta comes in many forms, and you can get healthy pasta that’s low in carbs and also high in protein and nutrients. This is a special benefit for those looking to make improvements to their dietary intake and meet their daily protein needs. This can be if you’re a vegetarian trying to manage in a meatless world, or if you’re fitness conscious counting the calories and protein to get the most of your body.


High protein pasta for vegetarians

Proteins are the building blocks of the body, they are an important part of the diet. A balanced diet should include a daily intake of around 0.75grams of protein for every kilo of body weight according to the vegetarian society. This can be upwards of 100 grams or 3 ½ ounces of protein for the average person. It can be difficult to get this without eating meat. This is where high-protein pasta like Fettunooey or lasagne sheets like the Lasagnooey can help. Having a higher protein than traditional wheat based pasta our pastas make it easier for vegetarians to get closer to their daily needs of protein just from enjoying a staple pasta or noodle dish.


High protein pasta noodles for health and fitness

When it comes to health, fitness and your diet, you want high-protein low calorie pasta. Protein plays a crucial role in muscle growth and repair, immune function, and the production of enzymes and hormones. 

If you're trying to gain muscle, or aid in your muscle recovery, getting the extra protein without having to unbalance a dish with more and more meat then changing the pasta is where it’s at. Especially if you don’t like the taste of meat, or if you’re vegetarian but still want to have your pasta and the protein too.

If you’re trying to slim down, and find it difficult to maintain a low calorie or keto diet and eat pasta and noodles at the same time, by using the right pasta/noodles you can keep enjoying the dishes you love without blowing out your calorie count. 

It also helps to have the extra nutrients that come with the ingredients of the Fettunooey or Lasagnooey sheets. They both have high levels of dietary fibre, and omega 3 fatty acids that are not just good for immunity but also good for muscle activity as well.
