The heat is on this summer and it has me thinking of picnics, anything outdoors, and feeling good in my skin! It gives you even more reasons to eat with a Modern Mindset that is all about whole body health and fueling you!
One of my favorite summertime foods is a cold pasta salad that is loaded with vegetables. It’s a delicious way to get in more vegetables and is a total crowd pleaser, especially when it is made with Modern Table® Gluten-free, Complete Plant-Protein Pasta! Modern Table® allows you to eat the foods that you love to eat (hello, pasta!), while also feeling great and wanting to eat them!
One of the best things about this recipe is that it uses Modern Table® Gluten-free, Complete Plant-Protein Pasta that is made with three simple ingredients (lentils, rice, and peas) instead of a traditional white pasta. This is a simple swap that amps this recipe up. It is certified gluten free, grain free, non-GMO, low glycemic, loaded with fiber, and it is a great source of complete plant protein. In fact, there are 20 grams of protein in each serving of this pasta!
Modern Table® is a brand that is dedicated to “Eating with a Modern Mindset.” I love this idea because it is all about growth and evolution. It is making small changes that make a difference, not only for your body, but the environment around you. We can care deeply about the food on our plate and how delicious it tastes, while still honoring our bodies and feeling amazing after eating. Modern Table® makes this so easy and is an ally in the kitchen for making simple swaps that lead to better choices.
