    spelt, primal or not???

    Shop Now
    I saw Spelt Taggiatelli in the supermarket today. I know here in Holland it's been marketed as THE primal wheat...
    I have no idea about how many carbs it has and honestly I don't care as I'm always so low of carbs that I only reach the 100gram when I eat lots of dark chocolate, so changing that for Spelt pasta won't be bad every once in a while...

    I just wondered who is using Spelt in his/hers Primal diet? is it something that's primal "approved"? What's your experience with it?
    My story, My thought....

    It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

    Calories? Aren't that those little creatures that live in my closet and shrink my clothes at night?

    Not Primal, maybe WAPF-approved. Primal doesn't endorse any grains or pseudo-grains. It gives an indifferent turn of cheek to white rice but doesn't encourage it. Perfect Health Diet gives you more starch and grain options, if you're interested.

    No, it is grain therefore not primal. However if you fancy some as part of your 20%, it is better than normal wheat.

    I would not want it as pasta, but I have been known to eat a slice of quality sourdough spelt bread with an equal thickness of butter on top.

    If you are intolerant to gluten, you should avoid this.
