Low carb or mo’ carb?

I was reading the back of my manicotti box, and I had to laugh when I got to the single line printed at the bottom – a desperate attempt not to sound desperate, but instead to nonchalantly steer people away from the low-carb diet, which could be the death of the pasta-making industry.

“Weight-loss diets that eliminate whole categories of foods can be detrimental to your health over the long term.”

    I’ve decided that I do like wordpress for this one reason: I can always look on the sidebar and see if there are any comments I’ve missed on a post somewhere. It may make up for the fact that your extra pages don’t show up on my RSS feed. 🙂

    Um, and what this comment has to do with pasta, I’m not quite sure… I’m just hijacking your post for my own insidious purposes.
