is there any low carb pastas ?

I am going on a low carb diet.... pasta is the thing I crave the most... and I think if I could find a low carb kind, so I can have some every once in awhile... then I would be ok...

  • You can try spaghetti squash, it's kind of like pasta except it's really a vegetable. Other than that eat, whole grain pasta. It still has carbs but the fiber in it is much better for you than white pasta. Also, for low carb diet if you have to eat pasta try to eat it during the day rather than at night when you can't burn it off :)

  • There is a rice pasta available but very expensive and I don't really like the taste or texture of it.

  • Try whole wheat

  • No, not really. But if you're also trying to avoid gluten, there are rice pastas that are really good but they still have carbs. Have you ever tried quinoa? Lots of protein in that so it'll offset some of the carbs. Best thing to do is to limit yourself to small portions.

  • I would suggest spaghetti squash, it is excellent-you can add tomato sauce, mozza cheese, peppers and other veggies of your choice. It is low carb and very low in calories. Try it.
