Hi All -

I bought some Ezekiel pasta yesterday which contains only sprouted grains (including wheat).  I recall that sprouting destroys the lectins but I just want to make sure.  Is that correct? This pasta wouldn't be an avoid for me then?  Thanks !

PS - Please, oh please don't be an avoid.  Rice pasta is about as exciting as eating cardboard.

What about spelt pasta? It has much more substance than rice pasta and would be a neutral for you.

Are you sure that all the individual wheat ingredients in the list are sprouted? If so, then this would be okay for you, but I'm dubious. I've never heard of a 100% sprouted-grain brand of pasta. Would it be possible for you to list the exact, complete ingredients list here? Or to post the brand name so that we could look up the ingredients on the web? I'm dubious about something called "Ezekiel pasta", but if the wheat in same truly is sprouted, then yes, it is okay for you.


edited to add: p.s. It doesn't sound like you've been getting a good brand of rice pasta. Pastariso, for example, tastes every bit as good as regular wheat spaghetti. I've also heard (but not tried it myself) that Tinkyada is a very good rice pasta.

Lastly, quinoa is my new fave-o-faves grain. Very easy to prepare, this can be used in place of pasta (as well as in many other ways, ranging from tabouli to faux oatmeal). This is a whole, very nutritious grain with complete protein (nice for A's).

If the pasta is the Food For Life Ezekiel 4:9 Pasta the ingredients look to be OK and pretty much the same as the bread.

Ingredients:
Organic sprouted wheat, organic sprouted barley, organic sprouted millet, organic spouted lentils, organic sprouted soybeans, organic sprouted spelt.


I have tried the pasta andit seems to work okay for me
(better than spelt in terms of body reaction).

In terms of other alternatives I do better with soy than rice pasta.

I only use pasta when fixing food for others that
will expect something that looks like "traditional" food.

I normally just eat my sauces without grain or pasta.

Too much grain is a problem for me,
but I do occassionally (several times a year)
use amaranth, quinoa, or millet.

Hi Mitchie,

When I was in Boulder last May, I found "EDEN Biodynamic Rye Spirals", of 100% rye in the Vitamin Cottage. You may think of it as a healthy and tasty alternative to rice pasta.

Cheers,
Yaman

Wow, very interesting, I've never seen or heard of pastas that were made with sprouted grains only. Let me take a wild stab at this and guess that you guys found these brands at Whole Foods? It's a whole different, more vividly-colored world in a WF store.

But that's okay. Now that I've discovered quinoa, I'm happy/good to go.

Tinkyada Rice Pasta is the only one I've found that doesn't get mushy.  It's really pretty good.

No Whole Foods stores in my area, but I can find the Food for Life Ezekiel 4:9 bread and pasta in almost every store, even regular grocery stores that have a natural food section.

I am with MoDon--No Whole Foods in my area.
One difference from MoDon is that for alternative pasta and grains
I need to travel an hour to a health food store.
Local grocery stores have natural food products
in their sales flyers, but do not stock the items in their stores.

I had spelt pasta last night and it was fairly good. While boiling the pasta, I added some chopped broccoli and once drained, I mixed in a little canola butter (not sure if the butter is totaly legal, but it's glutten/dairy free).

I seasoned my tasty dish with Spike seasoning, but now that I'm reading the ingredients .. it's probably not "O" legal (bummer).  I'm about 20% compliant (baby steps, baby steps).

Anyway, the point of my post is that spelt pasta .. ain't too shabby

Ghee would be much better for you than either the canola butter or regular dairy butter.

Try making ghee by cooking organic unsalted butter. It is easy to do and there are lot of threads on the topic.

Our HFS carries Ezekiel pasta and it's pretty good, but it's a little on the fiber-intensive side for my roomie So we use Tinkyada instead. Well, she does. I just have the sauce on steamed or sauteed zucchini or broccoli now.

Yaman, the Eden rye spirals are sooooo good! I sometimes use them for beef vegetable soup or as an occasional side dish with ghee and onions for pot roast or roast turkey. Yummy!

You are right Brighid, rye spirals are delicious. Actually for me rye is a lot tastier than other grains, so I'm glad rye turned out to be a super beneficial for me according to my SWAMI results

Cheers,
Yaman

I do enjoy the Eden rye spirals. Just wanted a change of pace and tried the Ezekiel and yes MoDon, that is the brand I purchased at my local grocery store. It was pretty tasty and had a good hearty texture which I like.

The rice pasta I've been buying is totally boring (can't recall the brand right now) but I will look around for the ones you all mentioned.

Peppermint - I've looked at the quinoa pasta but didn't buy it for some reason (which I can't recall either).

Thanks for the thumbs-up on the Ezekiel. I guess I'll go take some bacopa now and get my brain fired up.

I am with you, rye has a very unique taste and it is my fave grain.  Gosh, how I love a GOOD piece of rye toast, slathered with butter, dusted with nutritional yeast flakes, and lightly kissed with just a hint of sea salt.  HEAVEN.  ...But alas, rye doesn't seem to be a good choice for me, as it seems to trigger carb cravings, big time.  I haven't had rye in years.

*sniff, sniff ...   *

On the positive side of things, though, now that I've discovered quinoa, I can pretty much take anything that being a nonnie throws at me, not-being-able-to-eat-other-grains-wise.



I stick to quinoa (ideally) and rice (which I really could do without, but end up eating pretty often anyway).

The only brand of quinoa pasta I have seen is made with corn flour.
Ingredients: A natural blend of non gmo corn flours and organic whole grain quinoa flour.

Peppermint - I've looked at the quinoa pasta but didn't buy it for some reason (which I can't recall either).

Mitchie, I don't get (and haven't even seen--again, no WF around here, maybe that is why) a quinoa pasta. I'm talking about the whole quinoa, which I use in place of pasta in recipes (it is so versatile that it can also be used in place of couscous--which actually is a type of pasta, but anyway, oatmeal, and other Type O avoid grains, too). I buy a brand of quinoa (which looks similar to couscous) called "Ancient Harvest".

Their website is: http://www.quinoa.net/

And I just noticed that they do make pasta products, but they contain non-GMO corn in addition to the quinoa. I would stick to the whole quinoa. Just because it isn't shaped like traditional pastas does not mean you can not use it in any recipe in which you would normally use pasta. btw, I think their site is rather poor because nowhere do I see a page about the regular, whole quinoa I buy. The kind I get is called "traditional quinoa". A similar variety is called "Inca Red" and they do have a page on that: http://www.quinoa.net/Inca_Red/inca_red.html. The traditional quinoa is white. My HFS has both the traditional quinoa and the red kind, which they call "Inca Harvest". The red looks very good and interesting, but is a tad more expensive, so thus far I have not tried it.

edited to add:  oooops--MoDon, I was composing this post in the message field as you posted yours, so parts of this repeat what you just said above, as I was composing before your post materialized.  Great minds think alike.
