NUTRITIONAL VALUE

Whole wheat pasta is abundant in fiber, manganese, selenium, copper, and phosphorus. It also contains iron and a few B vitamins. It also contains fewer calories than refined flour pasta.

Capsicum, tomatoes, pumpkin, and mushrooms, or any other vegetables, are not only high in fiber but vital vitamins and minerals as well.

Tofu is gluten-free, low in calories, and is said to have all the essential amino acids in itself. It is a good source of good quality protein and is an excellent source of iron and calcium too.
