Enjoy Pasta Again!

Quick, what's the first thing that you think about when you hear the word "pasta"? For me, it was usually "CARBS!"; although pasta is easy, of course, I never got excited or happy about 'having' to have pasta for lunch or dinner. Plus, even gluten-free pasta can be packed with soy, sugars, and other additives that can make a bowl of pasta more of an indulgence than a healthy alternative. The good thing about most gluten-free pastas is that they fill you up without having to have too big of a portion, but they leave you with that heavy feeling. And, most people go gluten-free to avoid that heavy feeling. So.... lose-lose situation, right?

Not anymore! Skinnypasta, created by two Italian sisters from my own stomping ground of Calgary, Alberta, offers a "superior level of nutrition", giving you what other gluten-free pastas (yes, even corn-based ones) cannot: non-GMO, no soy, no rice, no corn, no nuts, no additives, all-natural, no preservative, plus amazing taste. They even have high-protein, low-calorie pastas (your favourites - spaghetti, fettuccine, linguine), and vegetarian, gluten-free entrees (ummmm... pretty sure that these pastas were made for me!).

I've recently tried the gluten-free, vegan, individual-serving Butternut Squash Ravioli... oh yes, didn't I mention that Skinnypasta has handy individual entrees for when you need a healthy lunch or dinner? Yup... they were made for you, too! 
The ravioli - 5 out of 5 stars absolutely - it was a serious treat to have ravioli again without that heavy, "I-just-cheated-on-my-diet" feeling. And, my picky husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Gnocchi in Pomodoro Sauce family meal so much that we couldn't wait to eat it (as is obvious in the picture below), so you get the end result of our meal. Three words: OM NOM NOM!

Couldn't wait to eat it... so here's the end result (Gnocchi in a Pomodoro Sauce by SkinnyPasta)
So, you ask, what's next for my love affair with Skinnypasta? Well, I can find it in-store (if you can't find it in a store near you, request it via Skinnypasta's website here), or I can order it online (hellll yes!) to get my fix. Bring pasta back into your life!

Tried it already? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments or on my Facebook or Twitter pages. 

Namaste :)
