6HealthyNoodlesAlts Prior to my Celiac diagnosis, I would have diagnosed myself as a Pastaholic.  Angel Hair, Fuscilli, and mounds of Pastina piled high on my plates and bowls.  I panicked at the thought of never being able to enjoy noodles again, until I found gluten free pasta.  It took some trial and error to find a type that would please my pick palate, but even still, gluten free noodles just didn’t agree with my irate intestines.  I have learned through trial and error that my IBS doesn’t handle large amount of simple carbs very well, so to get my noodle fix, I needed to search elsewhere…. The hunt for alternative noodles began! Whether you have Celiac, a Gluten Allergy/Intolerance, or are simply looking for a healthier pasta alternative, I’ve got ALL your pasta problem solved!  1.
