March is National Noodle Month and its time to use your noodle and include this easy to cook food in your healthy diet.
When we think of noodles, Italy always come to mind. Italians may be the ones to spread the popularity of noodles throughout the world but they were first served further east, in China.
The Chinese people were making noodles and other pasta as early as 4,000 BC. According to the National Geographic News, a bowl of preserved long, thin yellow noodles were found in northwestern China buried in ten feet of sediment in 2005.
Many historians believe Marco Polo brought back Chinese noodles to Italy, but Arabs also claim they created noodles as an easily stored food item suitable for long desert journeys. Japan, Korea, France and Germany have also claimed their cuisine created the noodle.
Noodles are a complex carbohydrate and the Food Guide Pyramid lists a one-half cup of cooked noodles as a serving. One serving contains one gram of fat, 106 calories and five milligrams of sodium. They are also a good source of B vitamins, iron and protein.
Noodles are often made from wheat, soy, buckwheat, millet and rice flours. Try any of these tasty flavors in salads, main dishes and desserts.
