Pasta & You...Blunt The Carbs..Diabetic Or Dietetic
Amino acids in protein help manage blood sugar. When eating pasta chose Dreamfield's Pasta which has 5 digestible carbs & always pair it with turkey or chicken meatballs. Add green beans, brocolli, even chickpeas to the pasta...you will think your getting more pasta. Remember to have only 2 ounces of pasta which is about the size of a quarter raw. Try Jennie O tukey sausage links in your pasta too, they are juicey and great tasting @ 160 calories a link.
Whenever I'm eating something that calls for pasta, tortillias, or bread I use lettuce instead. Example~ Spaghetti Meatball Salad, Fajita Salad, Cheeseburger Salad. All the Goodness, Alot Less Carbs!!!! Not to mention it helps you get more veggies!!!
