Have any of you Smashers tried brown rice pasta?! I got some at the health food store - it's made out of brown rice, carrot powder, tomato powder, spinach powder and water (those are the ingredients) so completely and totally acceptable in Phase 1! I made some yesterday and it's very good. Remember your serving size though! It's a nice change.

It tastes like the real thing! You cook at 1 or 2 minutes and then take it off the burner and let it sit for around 20 minutes. The brand I got was "Tinkyada" - never heard of it, but anyway - outside of package reads...wheat free, gluten-free, good consistent texture (that's true) not mushy (also true) - cholesterol free, low fat, low sodium, source of fiber and easy to digest...anyway - I made some yesterday because my stomach was upset - made some vegetable broth and added some of the pasta (after I cooked it) and it was really good.

I love brown rice pasta. I have had it before because I am allergic to wheat. When I made it for friends they didn't notice a difference. Watch out, though because even though it is whole grain, it is still refined rice flour, so the impact carbs are different than from eating brown rice. I don't know if that matters to you, but I thought I would throw that out there. Smile

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

To get exact numbers you need to put in the ingredients you used in their pure form. The compound items assume a whole lot of things that may not be true.

Drink lots of water. If you can, try drinking the Benefiber packets in your bottled water. It keeps you feeling full which helps during the detox phase and it helps with bloat, belly fat, and energy.
