I like the more complex flavor of WW pasta.

I have found another way to get some whole grain into the diet. I have found that substituting rolled oats for 1/3 of the flour in a recipe is unobtrusive and rarely impairs the quality. One would think the rolled oats would coarsen the texture but it is not so. I have a bread machine recipe that I make regularly with 1/3 oats. (I load the machine in the evening and set it with a time delay. It is wonderful to wake to the smell of fresh baked bread.) I routinely put oats in pancakes, muffins, etc.

A substitution I make for flour when sauteeing is ground flax meal. I dredge veal leg scallopini slices or very thin chicken breast in the flax meal and sautee it in a mixture of olive oil and unsalted butter. After it is browned and cooked through, I squeeze in some fresh lemon juice and toss in a few capers. Very quick, easy and tasty even if it is not "traditional". I have done this with sole, too, with good results.

I don't eat much bread or pasta, but it's WW for me for both.

I'm not even Italian and I agree 100% with you. I'll force down a couple ounces of Metamucil and then eat the real Durham wheat pasta!! That's what I'm talkin' about!

It is 100% real durum wheat pasta - it just doesn't have all the wheat bran and germ removed. In other words, it's less processed.

Always ww pasta and brown (or black or red...) rice and whole grain bread. The over-processed stuff is bland.

When I drink milk I buy from local dairy, minimally processed whole milk.

I'm okay with WW - if I didn't, I'd just put some extra cheese on the top or a bit more chilli in the sauce.

Sure. I eat an Italian whole wheat pasta all the time. I buy fresh pasta on occasion (or make it myself). It's like any other food. Buy good food and cook it correctly.

In our house we eat it per docs recommendation, but no one likes it as good as regular pasta. Now we mix it in ratio of 2 parts white to one part whole grain.

My trainer friend Erich commented that I should try quinoa pasta (this was actually one of his tips when I canvassed all my fitness friends for their best advice). I was gun-shy after this experience, but he assured me it was way better. So I went and bought this Quinoa/Corn rotelle.
