As you all know, I am always looking for ways for my family and I eat healthier. However, we don’t want to give great tasting foods either. That is why I am super excited when I find products that are healthier for us like Jovial Foods Einkorn Pasta. Einkorn is nature’s original species of whole wheat, first cultivated nearly 12,000 years ago. Considered even healthier than modern whole wheat, ancient einkorn grains are inherently more nutritious. It has more naturally occurring high protein (9 grams per serving), nutrient, mineral, vitamin and antioxidant content (a 2-ounce serving of einkorn pasta outperforms “superfoods” including the raw blueberry, in its nutritional value). Einkorn also is a healthy source of dietary fiber, zinc, iron, and the antioxidant Lutein, making the pasta a nutritional powerhouse and ideal for both vegan and non-vegan diets alike.
That all said, I know you have to be asking “how does it taste”. I used my two pickiest taste testers in my house — Madison (7 years old) and Will (4 years old). After asking me why these noodles looked different, they went to town on these noodles (I served them with some spaghetti sauce). Both kids asked for more helpings twice! Now, in my house, the kids normally finish their plate and don’t ask for seconds. That just tells you how good their pasta is! I personally didn’t find a taste difference between this pasta and the pasta I normally make (which is no where near as healthy as this!). Here are few recipes if you want to be way more exciting than me.
Jovial Foods Einkorn Pasta is definitely something I would buy and continue serving to my family!
