Crazy for Couscous!

Posted Aug 14 2009 4:44pm


I love brown rice and whole wheat pasta. They are full of fiber, aren’t processed and keep you fuller for longer. I feel like I go through a box of rice a week because I pair it with EVERYTHING. Recently I felt like I needed to switch it up, so I wandered into Trader Joe’s. There I found something incredible in a cute little box, whole wheat couscous! You can serve it hot or cold. In one 1/3 cup (dry) serving there is only 220 calories, only 1 gram of fat and 7 (yes 7!!) grams of fiber!(According to Nutrition.com for a 2,000 calorie diet you should aim for about 20 grams of fiber per day.)


It literally takes about 6 or 7 minutes to cook and is perfect with chicken, veges, steak, fish, as a main dish or a side! The possibilities are endless!
