Resolved to cut carbs? Good idea. Carbs are linked to high blood sugar, which in turn is linked to diabetes, heart disease, cancer and gaining weight.
Here are some creative substitutes:
Rice: Cauliflower pieces, cut small
Mashed potatoes: Mashed cauliflower, mixed with turnips or celery root, seasoned with herbs or spices
Lasagna noodles: Zucchini, sliced lengthwise and thinly
Spaghetti: Spaghetti squash
Buns: Portobellos, lightly cooked
Wraps, tacos, burritos: Lettuce or rice paper, rolled with beans or veggies
Pasta: Broccoli spears, onions, mushrooms, smothered in sauce
