  1. Hi Emma and Carla. I am new to your website and the Paleo lifestyle. It certainly have it’s challenges. Dinner ideas seem to be non-existent for me at the moment. This one intrigues me though. What is SlimPasta? And where can I buy it. Many thanks.

    Hi Tiina! Thanks for your comment! Yes, dinner ideas can be tough! We’ll be posting loads more soon! SlimPasta is made from the konjac vegetable (it’s an asian veggie) you can get slimpasta from coles, woolies and most health food stores! Otherwise, you could also use kelp noodles or you could spiralise (or julienne peel) zucchinis instead! YUM! Give it a try and let us know how you go! e + c
