These pastas are easy to cook, stay together well, and they taste great! We’ve made them with a wide variety of toppings and they have all been equal to or better than traditional wheat pasta.

If you’re gluten intolerant or just want to avoid the wheat, these pastas are organic and delicious.

An excellent choice is Beanitos. They come in several varieties, and they are all yummy! Our personal favorite is restaurant style white bean with sea salt, which are a lot like the tortilla chips you get at Mexican restaurant – but healthy!  Add salsa for a great snack anytime.

Amazon has many varieties. Click for your favorite choice: Restaurant Style White Bean and Sea Salt, Black Bean Chips with Sea Salt, or a Variety Pack.

Soda alternatives?

Don’t want the high fructose corn syrup of regular soda or the poisonous artificial sweetener alternatives?  Try Zevia.

Amazon has many flavors. Click on your choice: Variety Pack, Ginger Root Beer, Cola, Caffeine Free ColaCherry Cola, Dr. Zevia, or Lemon-Lime.

Cookies anyone?

While we haven’t found any stevia sweetened cookies, we have found a cookie that has good ingredients and is scrumptious. It is Back to Nature Fudge Mint (like Girl Scout Thin Mints).
