Fat Breakdown
Saturated 1.5g
Unsaturated 4.5g

Fat (6g)
46 Calories

The USDA recommends 20-35% of calories come from fat; however, there are good fats and bad fats. Unsaturated fats are considered good fats and are found in nuts, seeds, most vegetable oils, poultry, and fish. Olive oil is largely monounsaturated and a key component to the Mediterranean diet pyramid. Omega-3s are polyunsaturated fats and found in soy, walnuts, flax and chia seeds, fish and shellfish. Saturated fats are not as good for us and therefore should not represent more than 10% of total calories in our diet. Sources of saturated fats include red meat, high-fat dairy (butter, cream, cheese, etc.), palm and coconut oil.

SPE promotes the use of ingredients with higher amounts of unsaturated fat than saturated fat. The fat in this dish comes from the olive oil, pumpkin seeds, parmesan and duck prosciutto. 5% of calories come from saturated fat.

Protein Breakdown
Total 8g

Protein (8g)
28 Calories

The USDA recommends 10-35% of calories come from protein; however, some protein sources are better for you than others. Proteins from lean meats, poultry, seafood and low-fat dairy provide the essential amino acids your body needs without too much additional saturated fat. Plant-based protein sources such as legumes, nuts and soy are also good choices with higher quality fats.

The protein in this dish comes from the farro and duck prosciutto.

Carbohydrates Breakdown
Added Sugar 2.5g
Natural Sugar 5.5g

Carbs (46g)
156 Calories

Carbohydrates are called many things: starch, sugar and fiber, complex and simple. They mainly come from grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, dairy and sweeteners. The USDA recommends 45-65% of calories come from carbohydrates.  In SPE, we target sources of carbohydrates that offer more than just quickly-absorbed calories such as intact or unrefined grains, legumes and whole fruits and vegetables.

Sugars are naturally occurring in grains, fruits and dairy and added sugars come from sweeteners such as corn syrup, cane and beet sugar, honey, agave, maple syrup and molasses, among others. The natural sugars in this dish come from the farro, apple and squash.  Maple syrup and sugar in the candied pumpkin seeds contribute added sugar to this dish.
