Pasta ????

Hey.....I have a question regarding "Dreamfields Pasta", I was wondering if it would be a low carb, on there web page they explain the carb break down. (as listed below)

1 Servings.....

Total Carb 41 g
Fiber - 5 g
Protected Carbs -31 g (which I don't understand)

So the total Carbs

Digestible Carbs 5 g

Is this correct? .... and is the protected carbs listed on other items?

I'm just started & leaning the program.


Thanks

Sugar cookie you say you just started, What? Low carb?

Dreamfields is a pasta , that some can eat some can't. Yes it is 5 gms. carbs per 2 oz. serving. It is not something you can eat on induction.

Yes, with Low Carb.

Yes, understand it's not on the induction, but I was just asking the question.

Thanks for your help.

Some people eat it without any problems, and others have their blood sugars elevated by it.

We eat it occasionally, in the recommended serving size (2 oz. dry weight for most - once cooked, 2 oz. is actually a decent serving) and neither DH, who is very insulin resistant, nor I experience any problems with it.

In fact, I plan to make my special mac 'n cheese for Mother's Day, along with prosciutto-wrapped scallops and a spinach salad, all at Mom's request!

I cannot tell the difference in taste/texture between Dreamfields and regular pasta.

I love Dreamfield's but now have a wheat allergy. *sigh* Anyone know of a good wheat-free pasta?

Yes. I need a gluten-free, soy-free pasta, too. Has anyone tried Contracha's oat pastas?

For a quick (totally allowed) pasta fix, try slicing cabbage very thin and just steaming it for 2-3 minutes to soften.
If it's not strong tasting, it works well
So does zucchini made into "zoodles". 1 medium zucchini makes a large serving!
There's also spaghetti squash, though it's a bit higher in carbs.
Good way to get your veggies in and satisfy that pasta craving, too

You can get the Ancient Grains quinoa pasta products in a gluten-free formula. They DO have corn flour though so not totally LC.

I'm with Dottie - zoodles are pretty dang tasty substitutes for pasta. And we DO love spaghetti squash with marinara and meatballs.

I'm with Charski and Dottie zoodles and spaghetti squash are my favorites.

I also have grain allergies.

Have any of you guys tried the Miracle Shiratake Noodles? If so, how are they?

I like the sound of zoodles and I do love spaghetti squash, but would like something that feels a bit more like traditional pasta. Lol

WHOLE BRAN RICE PASTA

There are good rice pastas out there. If you can afford the
carbs. It is just as high carb as regular pasta, but no gluten.

If I am really panting for pasta, I use 2 oz. Dreamfields mixed with
spaghetti squash or zoodles. This is for a casserole serving 4-6.
You get a few 'noodles' and satisfies the craving.
