It’s a lifesaver. At least in my house, and I imagine your house is likely similar to mine.
My kid would eat pasta every meal of every day, and me being me? I’d let him because I love pasta too. It’s so versatile, so changeable, so easy, so freaking delicious.
It’s not, however, so great for my hips.
It’s also not so great for my health. You see, I have PCOS. You can Google that if you like, but the quick and dirty version is that PCOS means I have to watch my carbs, as my body has a problem with sugars and how I digest them. It’s almost pre-diabetic, I guess you could say.
But I love pasta…and I really can’t give it up, not until I absolutely HAVE to.
Luckily I don’t HAVE to.
Dreamfields. In case you aren’t familiar with Dreamfields, you should be. I am an ambassador for them, as I do love them so much. They are the healthier pasta – lower digestible carbs – which is great for someone like me, who needs to watch my carb intake. If you’re diabetic, pre-diabetic, or have a history of diabetes in your family, it’s a wise option to look into Dreamfields.
Basically, I love it.
If you’re curious, no, it tastes NO different than regular pasta. It does not cook differently. I feels the same, boils the same. It’s pasta.
It’s just easier on you, and that, for me, is a wonderful thing.
And this Pumpkin Sage Linguine is a wonderful thing for all of us.
Full of flavors, earthy, and a little bit sweet. It’s a new sauce to add to your repertoire, and I hope you’ll give it a shot. I think you’ll really love it!
