National Pasta proudly presents the first product in our new line of Healthy Grains: Red Lentil Rotini. You asked for it and we’ve delivered! Over a year in the making, our non-GMO, organic, gluten free, vegan-friendly Red Lentil Rotini packs a protein punch – 25 grams of protein per serving – without compromise on taste or texture. We recommend it served hot with tomato sauce and all of your favourite add-ins, like spicy bites Italian sausage and a sautéed veggie medley. It also makes a hearty pasta salad for lunch or your next barbeque feast.

At National Pasta we work diligently to provide our customers with top quality, homegrown and locally-made meals. The latest and greatest move in our mission is to replace our traditional aluminum foil frozen entrée packaging for CPET trays with transparent film seals.

If you’ve committed to a new year’s resolution to lose weight or gain a healthier perspective on your eating, the odds are unfortunately not in your favour. According to U.S. News, over 80% of new year’s resolutions fail.

BUT, there’s a reason this seasonal reset is a necessary idea for all of us, so don’t give up. Just as there is a marked change in the seasons, we depend on these ritual endings and new beginnings as a way to return to a more normalized relationship with eating after the holidays (otherwise known as the season of indulgence). We’ve got some useful tips and some healthy food recommendations that can help.

It seems illogical, but the rising use of antibiotics in livestock production has become a major concern for our health. Because of the role antibiotics play in helping us rid our bodies of harmful bacteria when we are unwell, we tend to think of this as a useful practice; one that would keep animals well, also.

Hallowe’een candy is on clearance, and the Christmas decorations are already filling the shelves: it’s beginning to look a lot like early November.

It’s Thanksgiving. The plates are set, the fridge is stocked, and you’re feeling overwhelmed with the impending holidays. You’re worrying about the cost of gifts, the change in weather, and especially how you’re going to survive the season without busting your belt loop. Sound familiar?

Summer is a great season for celebrating, vacationing, and indulging. Luckily, September is a great time to return to healthy habits, including a focus on more wholesome ways of eating. According to one University of College London study, it takes an average of 66 days for a behaviour to become a habit: so while it can be difficult to get back on track, setting a few manageable healthy eating habits now can support more balanced eating going into the holidays.

National Pasta’s commitment to healthy living is always developing. As we learn about advances in food production, and as our chefs experiment with new recipes and ingredients, we are proud to offer our loyal customers more options to eat clean and increase their quality of life.

The great majority of people are always looking to improve their overall eating patterns and make more informed food choices; and with all kinds of low-calorie, fast fix diets clogging your newsfeed and competing for your attention, the idea of digging down into that big bowl of linguine might sound more like a “cheat day food” than a healthy meal choice. Negative buzz words like carbs, calories and gluten might have you feeling a bit panicked and asking the question: is there room for pasta in a healthy food plan?

We all know how great a big bowl of hot and hearty pasta can warm us up in the winter. Have no fear, pasta lovers! You can keep your pasta love affair sizzling on the side during the summer months.
