Twists of whole grain goodness

Want to eat more whole grains? Try Eden’s Kamut and Quinoa Twists. Research shows that people who eat more whole grains may have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and some cancers. Whole grains include all three parts of the grain kernel and are higher in fibre, vitamins and minerals when compared to refined grains and enriched grains.

One serving of these twists delivers  7 grams of fibre and is an excellent source of iron, folate, magnesium and zinc. A big surprise for me was the sodium content — zero (zilch, zip, nada).

The twists have a mild nutty flavour, but this is easily masked by pairing it up with a flavourful sauce. I served it with a tomato-based sauce made with ground beef, mushrooms and lentils. I held my breath as the kids tried it. No one noticed the difference — just another pasta with a cool shape. Whew!

Not that I’m ditching my other whole grain pastas, but I’m adding a new one to the mix.
