No Carb Diet: Where to Find Gluten-Free and Zero-Calorie Pasta!

Are you on a No Carb Diet, but can’t help the cravings for foods that you are trying to limit or entirely cut from your eating plan? Then you are not alone. My favorite T-shirt says “I love carbs”… indeed the Italian in me longs for pasta in cold salads, or hot noodles and spaghetti and – to be honest – it’s not the whole grain pasta I’d die for.

Nevertheless, I am trying to eliminate the bad carbs, especially bleached flour and sugar, as much as possible from my meals. On my hunt for low- to no-carb diet recipes, I found a product which lets me have the noodles without the guilt.

As mentioned, I love pasta. But I love pasta with no carbs and zero calories even more:

And it was my happy day when I’ve stumbled upon pasta with NO carbs and ZERO calories! Gluten free pasta; how real is that?!! Pasta unlimited…

Try the following Sea Scallop Recipe from the Miracle Noodle web site:
