    Nuts of any kind. Never met a 'Nut' I didn't like!
    I feel it is my mission to finish off any bag or bowl that comes within arm's reach.
    List in order of my favorites:
    Pecan, Pistachio, Macadamia, Almonds, Peanut, Walnut, Brazil, Chestnut and on and on...

    I love nuts too Tim, but we just don't get on :p
    Maybe if I'd never stopped eating them it would have been fine, but there was a gap of years and when
    I tried them well, we just didn't get on :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I like nuts too...at least most are healthy but still high calorie....you can't really eat all you want.

    Think pistachios are my favorite, then cashews....my least favorite are the healthiest ones..almonds. :)

    @Ren Tanner
    That would be a brand name? Have never seen it. Perhaps the healthfood store at our Mall might have it. We walk the Mall when weather does not permit the Riverwalk. I'll look for it.

    @Frank Sanoica , it's in most stores...Safeway has it but I don't think your wife would consider it low carb as in Atkins low carb....it has about 40 some carbs per serving.

    If I'm low carbing, I wouldn't use it.

    On the other hand if it's for you and you just care about the glycemic index....guess it's fine.

    @Chrissy Cross
    I guess I don't understand these things too well yet. If it's rather high in carbs, how can it not affect the Glycemic Index? I started eating only 100% whole wheat pasta about 2 years ago (+ or -), and my measured blood sugar has remained the same as always, in the 90s. My meager understanding is that sugars and carbs digested by way of milled grain causes fast response by pancreas, I think that is considered a spike. Could be all wet. Especially today, CAs next front is sweeping over us here, likely another 1/8" or so. The desert plants in our wash out front have all "greened-up".

    Look it up, @Frank Sanoica ....I wouldn't eat it if I was doing very low carb. If you're not, then it's probably a better choice than regular pasta. Best choice is no pasta. :)

    Yes, California is actually GREEN, we've had a lot of rain and its forecast for most of this week also

    I never feel spikes or anything, I just ate low carb as a way to lose weight. I'm pretty sure Ren isn't eating that pasta because he has to lose weight....it's just a tad healthier..

    I like nuts to Tim. Lately I've been snacking on mixed nuts and dried fruit.

    I must say cheese and coffee will always be my achilles heel. Anyone who offers me these 2 things will automatically become my best friend

    Pasta. Lately, whole wheat Pasta. If any food craving has ever really affected me, it is that!

    I am ashamed to admit it but if no chocolate bars in the house I have been known to raid the baking chocolate chips by the handful....shame on me
