Pasta! Pasta! Pasta! I think that it is pretty safe to say that whether you're a picky eater or not, everyone loves pasta. I know I sure do, but what if you were able to enjoy it alongside a huge amount of protein? Well, thanks to Banza  you no longer have to yearn for such a healthy pasta product again.

What Is Banza?

Banza makes 16 shapes of pasta, six types of mac & cheese, and four versions of chickpea rice. Wow, that’s a mouthful! Now I know you may be wondering what this amazing product is made from? Well, the answer is chickpeas. Chickpeas, the beloved legume used to make everything from hummus to falafels. While this may be a tiny legume it certainly packs a lot of protein with nearly 23 grams.

We tend to underestimate the importance of protein in our diet, but it is a critical food group to keep you energized and full for a long time. Also, let’s not forget that Banza is gluten-free and contains 30 percent fewer net carbohydrates than regular pasta.

Overall Thoughts

But just like any pasta, Banza tastes phenomenal with thousands of five star reviews even on Amazon. Now that’s impressive! My favorite product is their Rotini which pairs well with pasta sauces, pasta salads, and even in stews. The brand even offers some yummy recipe suggestions for kids who are missing classic cafeteria lunch menu items this fall such as Mac & Cheese and Air-Fried Chicken Nuggets, Alphabets Tomato Soup, Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs, Cheesy Alphabets & Peas and Penne Alla Hot Dogs!
