Carb Substitutes

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
