It's the most wonderful time of the year! Not just because October is spooky season but because it's also National Pasta Month!
Of course, at It’s Skinny, every month is pasta month, but in October, it’s actually official. So, let’s get festive and talk pasta (and share our favorite pasta dishes)!
Why It’s Skinny is the Perfect Pasta
Why does It’s Skinny Pasta give us so many reasons to celebrate? Well, first of all, because It’s Skinny is totally delicious and the perfect answer to all your pasta cravings.
But more importantly, It's Skinny is guilt-free pasta because unlike the traditional pastas out there, It's Skinny contains ZERO net carbs and only 9 calories per delicious bag. What could be better? This is pasta you can eat any day, any time, even while fasting or following strict low-carb diets.
It’s Skinny is perfect for people who follow the keto diet, low-carb lifestyle, paleo, vegan, gluten-free, and many other meal plans. It's made from a very special ingredient that works seamlessly for nearly any dietary regimen out there.
What’s the special ingredient in It’s Skinny? It’s called konjac. Now, maybe you aren’t familiar with this root vegetable—many people have never heard of it in the United States. But in Asia, konjac has been used for food and as medicine for centuries.
Konjac is a strange-looking little root. It somewhat resembles a turnip. But what's so special about konjac is that it's very high in hunger-crushing glucomannan fiber. This fiber helps keep your blood sugar steady and your hunger levels at bay without adding calories and carbs to your meal.
So, what's it like to work with It's Skinny Pasta? It couldn't be easier! National Pasta Month is the perfect time to order yourself a six-pack and discover how simple cooking with konjac can be. To use these miracle noodles, all you do is open the pack, drain, and add to your meal at the end of the cooking process. Heat and eat! It's that easy!
It’s Skinny is available in four great varieties:
- Angel Hair
The noodles are a great texture, and they take on the flavors of the surrounding ingredients in your dish. There's no strange taste that can overpower your meal (we're looking at you, zoodles), and they're the perfect swap for any of your favorite pasta dishes.
