When it comes to feeding our families a lot of us fall into different categories, the cheaper the better, or the organic, GMO-free label readers. I am turning into the latter the more I learn about the food industry. We have deep desires to feed our kids healthy nutritious foods, but picky eaters surface who don’t want to try the kale or the lentils. Some people get around this by using supplements to give them the required nutrients while others are worried about aronia berry side effects. I get it, I have a friend whose child would only eat orange food. Mac n cheese, goldfish crackers, carrots and chicken nuggets. My six-year-old is also one who protests that something new on his plate. So how do we make sure we are providing the right nutrition when our kids won’t bite?
Cybele’s makes a wonderful superfood rotini that is non-GMO, gluten-free, grain-free and certified-vegan as well as free from the top 8 allergens like peanuts, wheat, fish eggs, soy, fish, and shellfish. This super pasta is chalked with pretty awesome superfoods like green lentils, kale, spinach, beets, broccoli and more. Cybele’s rotini is also a great choice for vegans because its filled with plant-based proteins. Some other facts about this super pasta include its fiber count. It contains more fiber than 1 cup of brown rice. It also contains more potassium than 1.5 bananas and more iron than 4 cups of raw spinach! If this doesn’t say superfood, I don’t know what does! I can tell you this much, the pasta is filling!! And the best part is that you aren’t eating empty calories, those calories are nutrition filled!
Right now Cybele’s makes five main rotini flavors accenting the superfood rainbow. Superfood green has green lentil, kale broccoli, and spinach. Superfood orange has red lentil, pumpkin and butternut squash. Superfood purple has red lentil, beets, sweet potato, and carrots. Superfood red has red lentil tomato and red bell pepper while superfood white has green lentil, cauliflower, and parsnip.
I was so excited to sample the boxes they sent me and make up a wonderful superfood dish for the family. I first sauteed some chicken in some cajun seasoning and olive oil. Birdseye also came to the rescue by providing a wonderful superfood topping to this pasta that included a lot of the things found in the pasta already like lentil and broccoli. Combined all together it created a wonderfully tasty dish that didn’t take much work.
- 1 chopped chicken breast
- 1 package birdseye Steamfresh Italian Style Protein Blends 11.5 oz
- 1 package of Cybele's Rotini Superfood Red Pasta (the red lentil, tomato and bell pepper)
- Saute the chicken on the stove in olive oil and cajun seasoning
- Steam the birdseye Steamfresh in the microwave or cook separately on the stove. (I don't trust cooking in bags)
- Boil Cybele's superfood green rotini on the stove with just a teaspoon of olive oil for 7-9 minutes.
- Once the chicken is thoroughly cooked, dice up and add to your protein blend.
- Drain your pasta when its finished cooking
- Add your protein blend to your rotini
- Substitute different veggies or proteins
If you find eating superfoods naturally a bit hard, especially for kids, think about making your favorite pasta dishes with Cybele’s instead. You can find Cybele’s in Kroger Chain grocery stores like Fry’s and King Soopers, buy on Amazon, Ralph’s, Wegmans Fred Meyers or Dillons. Give this super pasta a try!
