pasta for a diabetic...?

neiladammcginnis | Aug 12, 2014 07:14 AM

Is there anywhere in DFW where I can purchase pre-made pasta (or bread) that is made with chickpea, coconut or almond flour, basically anything grain free that is ok for a diabetic to consume?? My father was just diagnosed with diabetes so i'm trying to help him out but he does not cook much (part of the problem) so i'm left to help him out but with a new baby i do not really have time to be his personal chef. I am already doing some shopping for him at Whole Foods since their selection is quite an improvement from Walmart where he shops.
If there are pastas that I could buy for him do they even taste good enough to bother with? I realize I should just learn how to make it myself but i have my hands full and i'm not sure the end result will even be worth the effort. In addition, I do not have a pasta mixer or anything of the sort.

I appreciate the help locating these food products locally.

FYI- Wheat bread has a high glycemic index so trying to avoid that as well.
