#HealthyPasta #HealthyHacks Program Provide Tips/Giveaways for Living Healthfully

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2016) - When the clock struck midnight and a new year was ushered in, many Americans started the clock on their resolution to live healthier. Dreamfields pasta is lending a hand with #HealthyPasta #HealthyHacks -- a monthlong campaign filled with daily healthy cooking and living "hacks" along with exciting giveaways. 

Throughout January, the brand will offer an array of freebies from Dreamfields pasta to other health-minded products, expert health tips and inspirational, motivational messages. Just visit the campaign headquarters at www.DreamfieldsFoods.com/healthyhacks or Dreamfields' Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest accounts each day for new "hacks" to encourage healthy living goals, and directions on how to win one of the free giveaways.

Made with premium durum wheat semolina and added inulin, a prebiotic fiber from chicory root, Dreamfields pasta adds a nutritional boost by providing 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein per one cup cooked serving. Inulin helps promote healthy digestion and can help you feel full longer. 

"Through this campaign, we hope to reward, inspire and delight our fans with simple 'hacks' that will help them take small but significant steps towards a healthy lifestyle," said Liz Housman, Director of Marketing at Dreamfields Pasta. "We look forward to sharing easy, fun, sometimes surprising ways anyone can make changes towards better health. There's no 'one size fits all' for health, so our 'hacks' will offer something for everyone."

To start off the year on the right foot, try Angel Hair and Tomato Toss. It's quick, easy to make and chock-full of good nutrition. For more recipes and information visit: www.DreamfieldsFoods.com.
