Cut Carbs With These Food Substitutions

If you’re trying to lose weight by cutting down on carbohydrates, you don’t necessarily need to alter your diet drastically. By swapping out carb-rich ingredients in favor of low or no-carb stuff with similar shapes, tastes and textures, you can stick to your plan without much sacrifice.

My Thirty Spot offers these carb-cutting suggestions:

* Make hash browns with squash rather than potatoes.

* Opt for sliced zucchini rather than noodles in lasagna.

* Use spaghetti squash rather than actual spaghetti.

* Make mac and cheese with diced vegetables instead of macaroni.
