Our patented baking process encourages the linkage of protein to carbohydrate in the pasta and cookies that extends the lifetime of the protein during transit through the digestive system. The result is that more protein reaches the lower regions of the gut to release hormones that go directly to the brain to signal you to stop eating.
These are ideal total meal replacements for every age and at every time during the day. They are shelf-stable so you can keep them in the pantry, at the office, or even put them into a school lunch box. Just 90 seconds of heating gives you a meal that stops hunger for five hours. The Zone cookies are a great snack anytime when you can’t make a Zone meal.
Our Zone Pasta is a revolutionary and delicious approach to curbing your hunger while enjoying the foods you actually like to eat.
Our Zone Pasta works by providing a controlled release of protein and carbohydrates to slow down digestion and signal your brain to stop eating.
Each package of Zone Pasta is a tasty and effortless way to stay in the Zone.
For our customers who prefer to build upon the foundation of our convenient meals by adding your personal culinary touch, by all means, go for it!
To give you an idea of the Zone-friendly ingredients we recommend, here are some recipes developed by our staff to enhance Zone Pasta, in two categories, basic and advanced. We look forward to publishing more recipes coming from our Zone Staff and Zone Community.
Zone Macaroni & Cheese
Dash of cayenne pepper (Before microwaving, open the plastic wrap ½ way and stir in the spices)
1 Tsp. Dijon mustard
Top with a small amount of sharp cheddar
¼ cup cooked chopped turkey bacon
Zone Fusilli Alfredo
1/8 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg, cracked black pepper (Before microwaving, open the plastic wrap ½ way and stir in the spices)
1 oz. of diced prosciutto or ham
¼ cup frozen green peas (blanched)
Don't be afraid to add various spices and seasonings, a splash of lemon juice or balsamic vinegar. Dashes of extra-virgin olive oil or some Parmesan cheese make for a zesty meal. For spicier taste buds, add your favorite Cajun seasoning or sauted onions/peppers. If you prefer a richer flavor, products can even be baked in an oven-safe dish.
