Any of you ever try Polenta? It resembles corn meal, but is more coarse. It is prepared as a sort of must, and ends with a consistancy of cream of wheat.

The nutrition info is as follows
Serving size- 100g (uncooked) ~5 cups cooked
370 calories
1.6 fat
4mg sodium
82.1 g carbs- 5 fiber 1.2 sugar
7.5 protein

What are your thoughts on this
I normally eat only like 1 cup cooked at at time.

I am guessing that 100g is around a cup.
