      Have you ever heard someone say, or said yourself “I love pasta.”? Really?  If pasta is so good, why not eat it plain, straight from the pot? Or how about right from the package?
     Pasta is bland and almost tasteless by itself. It’s basically dense bread. And like bread, pasta needs something on it to make it appealing.
     At this point, most all of us know we don’t need a plate’s worth of pasta’s calories.  All calories of which are, insulin eliciting carbohydrates.  And let’s not forget, pasta has negligible to no nutritional content.  Yes, the spinach stuff included.  But I’m not even talking about the nutritional content of pasta here. 
     The point is, pasta doesn’t even taste good!
     So the next time you order or prepare your favorite heavily carbed-up dish, give it a try without the pasta. Chicken with alfredo? It‘s good without the fettuccine, add broccoli.  A pesto on clams with fresh veggies? Just as well than with linguini.  And there’s no doubt a filet is great with a gorgonzola cream sauce and a side of asparagus… there’s simply no need or reason, whatsoever, for pasta in your diet.
-t.
