A true Italian lives for pasta. Need a dinner entrée? Try pasta. Missing something in your soup? It’s pasta. Looking for a lunch side? Pasta salad. Breakfast? How about a big bowl of leftover pasta? Thus has been the way of life in my home for as long as I can remember. Naturally, it can’t be hard to imagine the obstacle that came to mind when my home decided to go gluten-free.
The first couple of months were the worst. My stove and my sink constantly presented an endless slew of mushy, unsatisfying, pasta substitutes. Whether it was spaghetti or elbow macaroni, I was convinced that the time had come to say “arrivederci” to my pasta-centered world.
Luckily, just before I hung up my pasta strainer for good, my friend recommended Living Now. I could not believe my eyes when I cooked it and was rewarded with a steaming pot of pasta just like Mom used to make! And when I tasted it, I had to double-check the box to make sure that I hadn’t mistakenly bought a box of traditional noodles.
I also noticed on the box that Living Now pasta is produced in a dedicated allergy-friendly facility that not only guarantees the lack of contamination from gluten, but all of the eight common allergies. It is a certified Organic and Non-GMO product, corn-free, and incorporates the perfect ratio of carbs to protein. Now, I’ve actually come to prefer Living Now to traditional pasta because I get more health benefits from the quinoa and amaranth that I otherwise would not be incorporating into my diet.
Thanks to Living Now, my “pasta all day” diet is back in full swing, and my gluten-free meals have gone from soggy disappointments to plates full of “perfecto.”
