The Benefits Of Ordering Great Pasta
Whether you’re looking for catering in Columbus or Bloomington delivery, there’s a few reasons why you should pick a great pasta dish tonight. Pasta sometimes gets a bad rep for being a diet-buster, but there’s actually a number of reasons why great pasta is never a bad idea. Sure, pasta does have some carbs involved, but it’s also got a lot of great nutritional elements that make it the perfect anytime meal. Our Bucceto’s pasta is always fresh and can be enjoyed in so many different ways, so you can enjoy pasta differently even if you have regular cravings.
Pasta is rich in carbs and fiber, which is not a bad thing if you know just what carbs do for the body. Carbs are a primary fuel source for your body, giving you energy to get up and face the day. Carbohydrates are actually a necessity for the body, and a meal rich in carbohydrates is the perfect way to give you a boost when you’re feeling sluggish. Along with carbohydrates is fiber, which aids in digestion and keeps you feeling full and satisfied. There is a reason why you get that satisfied feeling after having a great pasta dish, and you can thank the carb and fiber combination.
It’s not just about the carbs and fiber, pasta is also rich in selenium and manganese. Manganese is an essential mineral that helps you to metabolize carbohydrates properly while regulating blood sugar, and whether your pasta is white or wheat, you’re still getting a sufficient amount of manganese per serving. Selenium is another mineral, but its job isn’t in metabolism or blood sugar regulation, it activates your antioxidant enzymes. These enzymes help to protect and repair the cells that make up your body, protecting them from free radical damage.
Folate is also known as vitamin B9, and folate helps to promote red blood cell developing while promoting new cell growth. A single serving of pasta can pack in as much as 42% of a person’s daily recommended intake of vitamin B-9. In wheat pastas, like our wheat penne, lutein and zeaxanthin are the stars of the show, which help to support healthy vision and may reduce a lung cancer risk according to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University.
It’s important to remember that what you add to your pasta, or how you take your pasta, may also add in additional nutrients. Our Spinach Ravioli, for instance, also incorporates the calcium, vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, and iron benefits of spinach along with the benefits of pasta itself. The next time you’re craving a great pasta dish with your Bloomington delivery, you may feel more assured knowing the nutrition that comes along with it!
