One of the biggest things I had to get accustomed to when I started eating healthier was ridding my self of the unnecessary and unhealthy carbs. It was hard for me because I loved rice and noodles, they were my WORLD! But as I started learning more and more about how to eat healthier, I realized I could make some really delicious meals with some healthy pasta alternatives.
Eating healthy doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor. In fact, I have found more often than not I am enjoying my new dishes more than the old ones! Why? I am using more spices and venturing out into unchartered territory with my palate. If you are like I was with rice and noodles, you are going to be in for a treat. I did all of the searchings for you and put together this great list just for you. Below is a list of over 30+ Low Carb and Healthy Pasta Alternatives.
There are so many different vegetables you can eat that take the place of those high carb dishes. Vegetables such as Spaghetti Squash and Zucchini are some of my favorites, but quinoa and soba noodles are also good substitutes.
(Make sure you bookmark this page or pin this post so you can come back and try all of these amazing dishes.)
