Today’s Menu: Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs w/ Baked Parm Toast

 
It was SpaghettiI and Meatballs tonight ! used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Spaghetti along with Honeysuckle White Turkey Meatballs. Topped everything with Kraft Shredded Parmesan Cheese and Bella Vita Low Carb Pasta Sauce (Meat Flavored). Along with the great taste the Sauce is only 70 Calories and 6 Carbs! At the end of the post I left the product description for the Ronzoni Spaghetti and the Bella Vita Pasta Sauce.

 

I also had healthy Life Whole Grain Bread that I buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and then sprinkled with Shredded Parm Cheese. Then I baked it at 350 degrees for 7 minutes. Makes an quick and easy way for a side of Bread for Pasta Dishes. For dessert/snack a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

 

 

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Nutrition

Here’s something to absorb: One serving of RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST pasta has over 20% of your daily recommended fiber intake – but did you know that fiber is good for you in more ways than just digestion?

People with diets high in fiber have a lower risk for weight gain, obesity, development of insulin resistance and diabetes. Fiber also prevents constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulosis, but it also helps reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases like colon and breast cancer. Fiber may help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and total cholesterol, therefore reducing the risk of heart disease. It can also help lower blood sugar to better manage diabetes.

Dietary fiber is the edible part of plants, primarily carbohydrates that are resistant to digestion and absorption in the small intestine. Fiber may be digested by fermentation in the large intestine. By eating high fiber foods you feel fuller, eat less, with fewer absorbed calories.

Fiber comes in two basic forms – soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, seeds, brown rice, oats and barley. It prevents or reduces the absorption of certain substances into the bloodstream. Insoluble fiber is found mainly in whole grains and on the outside of seeds, fruits, legumes, and other foods. It is like a sponge that swells within the intestine to promote more efficient elimination and alleviate some digestive disorders.

Fiber is found only in plant foods and passes through the digestive tract without being completely broken down. Being indigestible, fiber provides no nutrients to the body, which is why for many years it was removed from processed foods like white bread. But, nutritionists have since discovered that fiber performs valuable functions precisely because it is not digested, and it is essential to good health.

The 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends everyone consume 14 g of fiber for every 1000 calories. Ronzoni Healthy Harvest is an excellent source of fiber, with 5-6 grams of fiber in every 2 oz. serving. Fiber is an integral part of your everyday diet, and RONZONI HEALTHY HARVEST pasta, as an excellent source, is a perfect solution to get more of it onto your family’s plate!
