The problem: Traditional white pasta is sky-high in simple carbs and low in protein and fiber, which can lead to erratic spikes and dips in blood sugar—but you already knew that. What you probably didn’t know: There are some pretty kick-ass new pastas on the market that taste like the real deal, but pack a wallop of protein and fiber, thanks to ingredients like lentils, edamame, chickpeas, beans, and almonds. And those proteins are great for postrace muscle recovery.

Here are 4 of our favorites that are reinventing this classic pantry staple.

Not as good as creatine which you can find in some nice tasty red meat

Actually whenever I measure pasta out for one of my one-pot meals, I am banking on the carbs.

The protein is in the meat already in the one-pot meal -- usually beef or sea food.

I also add a handful of frozen vegies for vitamins and fiber.

Then I blend some berries for a fruit drink.

That gives me protein, carbs, vegies, and fruit -- 4 entire food groups.

I don't need protein in my pasta. There is plenty of protein in my meats.

Do you ever have an original thought, or are you content to simply cut and paste the thoughts of others? :roll:

A modified Atkins plan with a variety of carbohydrates and veggies sound just right.
