    Ronzoni Smart Taste pastas and Dreamfield's pasta are diabetic and family friendly. The key to eating pasta is portion control. A one cup serving may look small on your plate at first. However, if you pair up your meal with a hearty vegetable and salad, it will make up for it.

I find now that I am in the rythym of this portion size, my appetite has only allowed for this much. emoticon

    I agree canned food is bad,it is all about convenience and cost. Education and portion control is the key.

    Not only are the canned food bad for you. ( just read label) They taste awful! I don't understand why people eat them.Making your own is so much more tastier & better for you.
