Whole-wheat pasta is just what it sounds like -- pasta made using the whole grain of wheat, which gives it a slight nutty taste. The outer coat (bran) and inner seed (germ) are ground up along with the grain. Bran is generally dark brown, which is why whole-wheat looks darker than regular pasta.

Because the bran and germ have not been removed, whole-wheat pasta is high in fiber and can be very chewy. If you haven't had whole-wheat pasta before, first try thin pasta, such as spaghetti or linguine, then move on to thicker, somewhat chewier types, such as fusilli or elbow macaroni

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
