Gluten Free Noodles

The wife is a pasta fanatic and I am a pasta hater (due to trying to stick to the Zone). I ran across these gluten-free noodles today and was curious if anyone knew how they stacked up against the glycogen/insulin response of regular noodles?

Link is (W/F) safe.

Thanks

Re: Gluten Free Noodles

They are made of corn so I assume they will be just as good for you as ones made of wheat for what that is worth. With the exception of the gluten tolerance/intolerance issue. I assume high GI/GL just like what

There are a couple of good options I like

Noodles made with Yam flour and Kelp noodles. You will probably have to look at a store which specializes in Asian foods. I also like my sauce over cooked broccoli or cauliflower instead of pasta.

Re: Gluten Free Noodles

Green beans also make a good pasta replacement, I love it with a creamy pesto.

Re: Gluten Free Noodles

Try spaghetti squash.

As others have said, pasta sauce tastes great over veggies and they are better for you than noodles. Zucchini is particularly tasty, IMHO. But if you are trying to approximate noodles without the gluten, rice noodles or spaghetti squash are your best bet. You can find spelt pasta too, but I believe it may have some gluten.

Re: Gluten Free Noodles

I made spaghetti out of spaghetti squash before and it remains one of the crowning achievements in my life. If it were a little easier, I'd eat it all the time.

Re: Gluten Free Noodles

I will look into this spaghetti squash, thanks for the advice.

Also, squash + zucchini + eggplant sauteed in a bit of olive oil & fresh garlic is delicious.
