High Protein Adzuki Bean Salad

low-carb-adzuki-bean-salad-01

A while ago we found a great line of bean pastas that are gluten-free, low carb, high protein and full of flavour. They have a nice selection of pasta types and bean varieties. The Adzuki Bean pasta is a lovely spaghetinni with only 11g net carbs, 20g protein and no cholesterol. Regular pasta is 33.4g net carbs and 6.7g protein so you can still get your pasta fix without all the carbs.

The pasta can be bought from your local grocery store in the gluten-free isle or online at http://www.explore-asian.com/adzukibeanpasta#.VXmO0UajBCU

The beauty of this salad is its simplicity and colour. The recipe makes a huge batch and our family of 4 we were well fed and I still have lunch for today.

There are 11.4g net carbs 23.8g protein and 12 Weight Watchers points per serving.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
