Italian Restaurants-White Flour Monuments

Think about this. We know from what science has discovered that too much refined, bleached,white flour, a simple carbohydrate like white rice, just goes to your waist, thighs, or your trunk.

You enter the restaurant. The place is lousy with 'Pavlovian' garlic fumes. Ahh, you order a dry red wine, and a basket of bread sticks arrives shiny from the oil or butter basting.
Then you order a pasta dish, made from flour, and eat a basketful of garlic bread dripping in garlic butter. Oh, yes, don't forget the croutons on the token salad.
Think about what you eat; what's is made from, who grew it; did they really dry each spaghetti from a tree branch. Practice conscious eating...slow down.
Anyway, it's a carbohydrate 'Love In'. Moderation in all things. There is now a lovely high-protein Quinoa Pasta on the market shelves as well as Buckwheat Soba, Spelt, and Italian Whole wheat pasta is far superior.
