Glycemic Index is a valuable tool to help manage blood sugar in the context of a healthy dietary pattern. This means appropriate portion sizes and pairing your Holista Pasta with other healthy, low GI foods. This will keep the glycemic load low to moderate, offering a host of benefits such as blood sugar control, decreased risk of insulin resistance, weight management, and sustained energy. 

Use the MyPlate method to pair your Holista Pasta!

MIX and MATCH from each food group category to build a variety of healthy plates made with 

Choose 2 Low Glycemic Vegetables + 1 Healthy Protein + 1 Healthy Fat.
