You Have to Try NuPasta ~ #Review & #Giveaway

I know most people would like to try dieting and/or eating healthier at a start of a New Year.  I would like to reduce my carbohydrates intake.  Carbohydrates turns into sugar which we use as energy.  When we eat too much carbohydrates in our system and we don't use it up, it then turns into fat.  I love pasta so I would be hard to cut it from my diet however, there are pasta substitutes like NuPasta.


NuPasta



A full serving of a plate of plain pasta (210g) has a approx of 300 calories and 50g of carbohydrates.  NuPasta has 25 calories and 6g of carbohydrates.  Can you imagine the calories if you add in sauce and meat and/or veggies?  It could add up!

NuPasta is made from konjac plant.  Konjac food is very common in Japan.  NuPasta comes in a container of water.  It is already cooked so all I have to do is drain, rinse, and add it to my pot of sauce.  Easiest and fastest pasta dish I have ever made.  I eat alot of different type of pastas and when I ate it alone it taste closely like vermicelli rice noodles. Once you add spaghetti, alfredo, or pesto sauces you could barely notice the difference from regular noodles.  NuPasta would be also great in soups, hot pots, and Vietamese spring rolls.


I served NuPasta to my kids and it was a success!  They never mentioned if it taste any different from their usual pasta dinners.  It was very filling and I was please that I didn't have to argue with them to eat.  I would serve this again to my kids.  Guess what!  They are all gluten-free.  The regular and organic NuPasta have the same texture, taste and nutritional content; the organic ones simply have the additional certification by the USDA.

GIVEAWAY!

NuPasta would love to give one of my readers one of each Organic Spaghetti, Organic Fettuccine and Organic Angel Hair.  Please note, NuPasta cannot be frozen so they will not be ship the prize until the weather is warmer.

This giveaway will run from January 7th to February 4th, 2016 (midnight EST).  Winner, You have 72 hours to reply.  You must be 18+ Open to Canadians only.  Good Luck!  Psst - Can't win if you don't answer the mandatory question.  I am not responsible for shipping and handling or damages of the prize.  The prize is shipped by the Sponsor and they may substitute the prize depending what is in stock.  Your information will be sent to the Sponsor for the purpose of shipping out the prize.

  5. I'm from Quebec. Sadly, there doesn't appear to be anywhere nearby that carries the product. When I search by postal code, the closest is Toronto, which is a good 6+ hour drive away. It would be awesome to win so I can try the pasta since buying it isn't feasible until it is carried locally.
