rice pasta is very inexpensive, and when it's cooked right, it's
delicious! It's also superb for people who are gluten intolerant and
must adhere to a strict gluten-free diet.
For our hair loss visitors with advanced hair loss, gluten has to be avoided at all costs. With our current hair loss diet menu, it can feel very restricting, and I'm going to loosen the reigns a little bit.
If you've been on the hair
loss diet for any length of time, you know
that it's very strict. I get a lot of questions about pasta, in
particular, brown rice pasta. There are a few tricks of the trade to
make sure that your blood sugar does not get out of control.
Whoa! Brown Rice Pasta's GI is 80-90?
If you've read many of the glycemic index reports, they list brown rice pasta's GI at 80 or higher. This is not acceptable for the hair loss diet. Other reports prove that brown rice pasta can be as low as 42. Click here for more.
Now, if I took that high number at face value, I would
tell each and every participant to avoid brown rice like the plague.
I've actually uncovered mistakes with the glycemic index. One of the first mistakes I uncovered was carrots. Eight years ago when I found out that carrots were a 90 on the GI scale, on a gut level I said to myself there's no way I'm going to eliminate carrots. How in the world are carrots bad for you?
Now we know that was a mistake. It's now common knowledge that carrots are fine, and they're looking more at the effects of the glycemc load as a result of heavy fiber content.
The other issue is how did people conducting the study cook the brown rice pasta? If it's over cooked, it's going to raise the GI dramatically. To pass our pasta test, the pasta must be cooked al dente, which means chewy.

There are guidelines that you can follow to be able to incorporate brown rice pasta into your hair loss diet. Here's how.
The end result would be a GI of approximately 50-55. I'm only
estimating the GI, because we have no way of knowing for sure.

Directions for Gluten Free Pasta Recipe:
In a small saute pan, heat olive oil, add chopped onions and garlic. Cook them until they soften a bit.
In a larger pan, heat two tablespoons of olive oil, and add the turkey salt and pepper. Cook well and stir often. Add the cooked onions and garlic and simmer on low heat.
Once the turkey is done, add tomato sauce, tomato paste, diced tomatoes, and stir it until it mixes well. Set this mixture to the side. You're going to add it to your noodles.
Boil your Rotini noodles in a pot for about five minutes until they're done. Make sure to test the noodles to make sure they're still firm. Drain and rinse the noodles in cool water in a colander.
Take the drained noodles and add it to your turkey mixture. Stir well and top with cheese. Combine this with salad on the side.
When you're draining the brown rice pasta, be sure to rinse it under cold tap water. This will stop the heat from making it stick together.
