    Default Pasta

    When I found I was diabetic it was hard to stop eating pasta. But the
    BG readings said I had no choice. But there is a new day dawning. A
    neighbor alerted me to pasta product by Dreamfields. Link -
    dreamfieldsfoods.com. I have tried low card pastas and have found
    them lacking in flavor and texture The first meal of this pasta was a
    real pleasure. Good taste, good feel in the mouth. All in all a
    replacement for the Barilla brand we used in the past. They claim a
    65% lower glycolic index and lower digestable carbs. Just go to their
    site and read the details. My first meal was spaghetti. A rather
    large plate with tomato sauce and garlic. I hour later my BG was 147.
    Did not get a 2 hr reading because I went to bed. :-) We bought
    another one and will be making a salad with that one.

    Dreamfields works for some and not for others. Make sure to check
    everytimeas your own ability to handle it can vary.

    Some of us make things with non-pastat that give one the sense of havign
    it. I do lasagna using either horizontaly sliced eggplant or zuchinni(or
    a mixture) as the pasta with my fillings and sauce and ceese alternating
    with the vegetable slices that I have softened in the microwave. I also
    do a string beans, browned hot italian saudage and sauce that I use as a
    main dish. microwave whole string beans, brown the saucage in fat slices
    on the stove top and then combine with teh string beans and sauce and cook
    in the microwave until nice and hot. You can also use spaghetti squash
    which also serves as a bace for sauce adn cheese.

    Just some suggestions to handle that pasta craving.

    Keep an eye on your BG. My DH did very well with Dreamfields for a
    while then he didn't.

    It gives me horrible gas and a stomach ache.

    Yes, one of the handiest gadgets is the julienne slicer that I bought at
    Wal-Mart (but I'm sure they're at other places too) that I use on the
    zucchini to make thin threads like spaghetti which I use in place of pasta
    most times. To me, spaghetti squash is too sweet, but YMMV. Those flat
    sheets by Barilla work well too if only using a couple, at least they did a
    few months ago. It takes time to find subs that you like, but most
    everything can be made to work with trial and error. I thought Dreamfields
    worked for me until I tested long afterward eating. It can be tricky. :-)

    Dreamfields is crap for most diabetics, causes a very late and LONG
    glucose spike for many.

    It's got the exact same carbs as regular pasta.

    Dreamfields spiked me VERY badly. I can eat regular, rice, corn, quinoa and
    even whole wheat pasta with no problem. I can not eat that. You need to
    check after you eat it and then again at about the 3 or 4 hour mark. A lot
    of people find it causes a spike later on. And if you use it in a pasta
    salad or eat leftovers you might also get a spike then.
