Anyone else been to the Nespresso Boutique?

Although I don't own an Nespresso machine, I do own the LaVazza Espresso Point machine. I order my espresso cartridges online from Whole Latte Love. Great selections of pods, cartridges and all coffee needs. The lowest prices online, great friendly service plus, no tax and free shipping keeps me coming back.

pasta for a diabetic...?

I noticed the hamburger and hot dog rolls on the site you provided.

pasta for a diabetic...?

Webra, I've emailed Banza asking if they sell their pasta products in Texas but I've received no answer as yet.

It appears, ordering from Banza online requires six boxes of one style of pasta as a minimum order.

Unfortunately, that's too much product for me to order at one time.

Go to the website Webra 1 listed above. The nutrition labels are easy to find by clicking on either of the two "pasta" products illustrated.

pasta for a diabetic...?

Although I don't have the answers to your last question, hopefully someone here can shed some light on the subject.

As I've suggested in previous threads, call the nice folks at one of the Natural Grocer's stores in Dallas or go online and call their main office for possible answers.
These people are dedicated to organic, non GMO food products. And, they tend to be less expensive than Whole Foods for the same products.

pasta for a diabetic...?

Neil, I'm a borderline diabetic. To help with your answer regarding bread, have your dad switch to Ezekiel's organic SPROUTED GRAIN breads. Personally, I prefer their sprouted grain WHEAT bread to the 7 GRAIN because I like the texture better.

Please read the link I've included in this comment. There is especially good information about bread and pasta for people with diabetes. The Ezekiel brand I mentioned above is well noted in the paragraph about bread.
https://www.raystrand.com/recommended...

Ezekiel's breads are available at Whole Foods, Sprout's, Natural Grocers and, Trader Joe's. Trader Joe's has the lowest price and, theirs is kept on the bread shelf and not frozen as is at the other stores I mentioned. I keep it refrigerated at home.

Agua Frescas

Thanks for the link, LH. I'm already planning on making a large pitcher of iced Jamaica agua fresca.
The Hibiscus tea leaves i'ved used previously are imported from Egypt and sold at Whole Foods.

And, I second your recommendation for Dona Lencha.

The OP might find this item from todays "City of Ate" blog clarifying.

Agua Frescas

Any one of El Tizoncito's Agua Frescas. The Jamaica (pronounced, Hamica) is my personal favorite. They also do them as fabulous Margaritas.

Monday Night In Dallas

You might try one of the restaurants in Highland Park Village like, Mi Cocina.

Then, you can work off all the food and Margaritas by shopping at one of the many boutique shops.

fresh fish/seafood DFW?

That's exactly the way the fish is displayed at TJ's Seafood in Dallas and Sea Breeze in Plano.

However lately, I've been preferring the seafood being sold at Whole Food's.

Second Komali.

At a recent lunch visit to Campuzano, I enjoyed their cheese and onion enchiladas and excellent hot sauces. The green sauce was particularly good. I've eaten there only once but right away thought them to be a "cut above" the usual Tex-Mex.

FSU v. Oklahoma State (dinner recommendations)

IMHO, the best regional Mexican and Tex-Mex in Dallas.
In order of my personal preference.......
1. Mesa
2. Mr. Mesero
3. Meso Maya
4. Casa Milagro
5. Campuzano

Vegetarian dinner in Carrolton

I know you'll get other suggestions but I will recommend First Chinese BBQ in Carrollton.
Plenty of tasty meat dishes AND, plenty of veggie and tofu dishes as well.

King Crab Legs in the area??

That sounds about right to me. And as I said, well worth the "surcharge" for not being previously frozen!
