One of the top priorities when starting your fitness journey is bolstering your protein intake.  For some individuals this can be particularly difficult, especially our plant-based eaters.  It is often a struggle to increase protein totals without significantly increasing your caloric intake. For some, this might be aligned with their fitness goals, while for others, managing calories may be an important factor.  Explore Cuisine’s Edamame Spaghetti can be a great tool whether you are massing, holding maintenance, or leaning out.  This pasta is vegan, gluten-free, and organic.  However those with a soy allergy should not eat this pasta, as it is made from edamame (immature soybeans).  One 2 oz serving, which makes about 1 cup cooked, packs a whopping 25 grams of protein, while at the same time only providing 3 grams of fat.  Most pastas will provide around 45 grams of total carb and variable amounts of fiber. This edamame pasta provides only 19 grams total carb, with 11 grams coming from fiber.  Pair this with your favorite marinara sauce and some stir-fried veggies for a well-balanced, lower calorie meal.  Or double the pasta and go extra high protein!  Regardless of your immediate goals, give this pasta a try for some added flexibility in your diet.
