Does Homemade Ravioli Cause Weight Gain?

Ravioli is a very popular food in almost all culinary cultures. However, since it is a pastry, the first question that comes to mind is whether ravioli causes weight gain. I would like to start my article by clarifying this question first. You can eat ravioli if you are on a diet. However, you have to prepare homemade ravioli in a healthier way. For example, you can avoid white flour by using whole wheat flour when kneading the dough. Or you can try not to drizzle them with oil before serving. It would also be a good choice to avoid strained yogurt and use cup yogurt instead.

All foods prepared with white flour have a high glycemic index. Therefore, it leads to weight gain. White flour is used in the preparation of ravioli, as in pasta and bread. The addition of white flour to the dough leads to a rapid and sudden increase in blood sugar levels. For this reason, the glycemic index is high. Ravioli can be transformed into a more harmless food by making some changes.

Many nutritionists advocate the consumption of whole grain bread, bran bread or whole grain pasta. In these foods, whole wheat flour is used instead of white flour. Such a change is also possible in the preparation of ravioli dough. If you want to eat ravioli during a diet, we recommend using whole wheat flour.

After changing the flour, the homemade ravioli should also not be doused with oily sauce. When preparing the yogurt for the ravioli, it is important to add garlic and use as little salt as possible. Eating garlic yogurt will make you feel fuller for longer and help digestion.

Shape the dough by bringing the ends of the dough together on top and placing the dough in a bowl and sprinkling it with starch to keep it from sticking together.
