 Which noodles and pastas are the best ones to choose for your health? – google image 

1.Whole-wheat pasta

Whole-wheat pasta is an easy to find healthier noodle that will bump up the nutrition of your pasta dish. Made from whole grains, it boasts 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein per serving (which FYI, is more protein than an egg). Most of us don’t eat enough fiber, which is good for our hearts and digestion. Some people find it to be a little less tasty than regular semolina pasta

2.Chickpea pasta

There are lots of different chickpea pastas to choose from, although they may be a bit harder to find (check the natural or gluten-free section of your grocery store if you don’t see this in the pasta aisle). I love that chickpea pasta has all the nutrition of chickpeas, but in a picky-eater friendly pasta. Also, because it’s made from beans, chickpea pasta has 11 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber per serving, for a filling and healthy meal. The flavor is relatively neutral so chickpea pasta works well in a variety of dishes. I love making macaroni and cheese with chickpea pasta or just tossing with jarred sauce for an easy dinner.

3.Veggie noodles

Vegetable noodles are a great way to sneak in an extra serving or two of veggies. Naturally, they’re very low in carbs, while high in flavor and stomach-filling fiber.

You can find healthy noodles made from vegetables like beets, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and, of course, zucchini (zoodles). When you make them yourself, vegetable noodles are gluten-free. However, if you buy them premade, double-check to ensure the noodles don’t contain ingredients made with gluten before eating them.

And keep in mind that veggie noodles don’t offer as much protein as some other options, so you’ll need to add that to your dish for balance,.

4.Shirataki Noodles

Made from the konjac plant, these soft, white noodles are known for being low in both calories and carbs, while still offering the classic texture of noodles.

These are very high in soluble fiber and are considered a prebiotic, which can be good for gut health,.

5.Rice Noodles

Rice noodles are lower in calories and carbs than regular pasta, though not as low as shirataki or kelp noodles. Some rice noodles contain brown rice flour, while others use refined (white) rice flour. Check the label if you want whole-grain healthy noodles.

Rice noodles are often used as a gluten-free replacement for wheat noodles, but always check the label to be sure.
