Martino Couscous, a healthy choice for your lunch break!
We love that there’s more to these recipes than just being easy to prepare! Including couscous in your diet comes with many benefits for your health. Couscous has long been considered a healthier alternative to pasta and it’s perfect for maintaining a balanced diet.
Couscous goes through a long process of preparation and is traditional in North African cuisine. It can also be made from whole-wheat flour, which slightly increases the fibre and boosts nutritional value. As a culinary ingredient, it works wonderfully as a substitution for rice or quinoa. Not only is it healthy but it is also so versatile.
Couscous is not only tasty and easy to prepare, but it also offers an abundance of nutrients. This is especially true for couscous that is certified and of high quality. Like Martino, which milles its grains following the best traditions, and that is why Martino’s couscous health benefits are so many.
