Quinola makes a great alternative to pasta. Not only is it gluten free, helping avoid that bloating you can get with too much gluten, but it also happens to be super healthy. Full of vitamins and vegetable protein, it has slow release carbs that will make you feel fuller for longer. That should help you avoid the biscuit box as you try and burn off some of that extra weight piled on over Christmas. Given how easy it is to cook, you’ll soon be wondering why you haven’t been using this great tasting alternative for ages.
