Best Pasta Choice


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Dreamfield's Pasta has only 5 digestable carbs. I measure out 2 ounces and add Tuna or chicken, or Lawry's Spaghetti Sauce which has only 2grams of sugar and 6 grams of carbs. Freeze left over sauce.

If you do not have a scale to weigh the pasta, take the Spaghetti noodles and measure them to about a size of a quarter.

    Dreamfield's is a great improvement over "regular" pasta, but it still spikes my blood sugar more than Eden Foods 100% Buckwheat Soba Pasta (my favorite) and VitaSpelt pasta.

    I like tofu shirataki spaghetti noodles ( the miracle noodles ) serving size is: 4oz only has 3g of carbs and 20 calories and 0 sugar 2g of fiber 1g of protein total fat 0.5g they really are miracles noodles lol emoticon

    or cook extra pasta and freeze whole meals. I find that I always (since starting SP) freeze a portion of supper for take out lunches... today I had Singapore curry noodles, grilled tilapia and frozen green/yellow beans

    Watch the news concerning fact vs opinion for Dream-fields pasta. I have been using It also because of what they same about the carbs. I just received a letter on the 16th of this month stating that I could be a part of the lawsuit for false information coming from the makers of Dream-fields products if you have used the products in the past year up to the present time. I haven't gone on line to find out all the details yet but I'm curious as to what you have to produce to show that you have used the products. I don't have any boxes or grocery receipts showing that I've purchased their products. I do have some spaghetti and elbow macaroni in my cabinet now. So I will have to remember to hold on to he boxes if you need to send in a boxtop or whatever. I thought I was doing something great for myself by using the products and measuring it out carefully after cooking to make sure I'm consuming the right amount. Sweet Potato Pie 1

    Tried the Miracle Noodles, could not eat the first bite. I really wanted to like them, but the texture reminded me of (what I THINK) biting into a live octopuss would be like.

    might also consider either spaghetti squash or miracle noodles (the latter have 0 carbs)
