Default interesting experiment - soy pasta

Stopped by Whole Foods tonight and picked up Nutrition Kitchen whole soybean pasta made from black soybeans.

  • Cooked fast (5 minutes)
  • Big serving (compared to regular pasta), 200 calories of this stuff was much bigger than 200 calories of regular pasta
  • High protein - 22 grams per serving
  • High fiber - 11 grams per serving
  • High iron - 70% of RDA

  • Kinda weird tasting
  • Rubbery
  • Visually distracting (gray)

All in all - a very interesting experiment! It definitely won't top my list of pasta substitutes, but not too bad.

Hmm, I think I'll stick with ww. Though maybe gray pasta would keep me from wanting more.
