I will tell you I get a salad. I also have some form of a potato or vegetable or rice. That is what I have had for the last 20 years of my life. I have never gone off the diet and I am very strict about what I eat nowadays. I would never imagine eating pasta. A serving from a restaurant on average will have around 22 grams of protein, I am only allowed 5. I would say try talking to chefs, or if you aren’t embarrassed by it, try bringing PKU pasta to a restaurant and asking them to prepare that instead.
