Obtain Water from Pasta and Grains
Water plays a critical role in preparing grains and starches like pasta, couscous, rice, and hot cereals. When cooked in boiling
water, their starch granules soak up water, causing them to swell and soften. This increases their fluid content as much as
sixfold, transforming them from one of the driest foods to one of the wettest. For more healthy pasta ideas, check out MyPlate-Inspired Pasta.
