So what is new? I hear you ask.

And really, in the land of strict carbohydrate subsistence pasta is downright epicurean. I once spent 3/4 of a year eating nothing but white rice and soy sauce (with an occasional egg fried in for special occasions). My monthly food allowance during that period: < $5.
