Day 2073 - Pasta Salad

Something you may not know about pasta ...


For those of you who are carb conscious like me you might run a mile when you spot a bowl of pasta.

Apparently we don't have to.

If we eat it cold the molecular structure of the pasta changes which makes it a resistant starch passing through the body as a fibre rather than being absorbed as a sugar (which happens when we eat it hot). So by eating our pasta cool we're less likely to store it as fat.  Isn't  that interesting?

Pasta salad anyone?
