I agree, I just wonder if the extra carbs and sodium (especially) might be contributing to the puffiness she's showing. Not really healthy stuff for someone with pulmonary issues.That is so true. The gluten free, bean/pulse based pastas are much more caloric than regular durum wheat pasta- and have smaller serving sizes to match. Most of the vegan convenience foods and meat substitutes are heavily processed and loaded with salt and sugar. That said, I still don't think that Chantal is being 100% honest about being vegan. I'm sure there is a pizza box saturated with sausage grease in her closet.
