One easy substitution can be made by using spaghetti squash as noodles for pasta dishes. Spaghetti squash is easy to cook, delicious and low in calories. You should find that even your kids won’t mind eating spaghetti squash.
Instead of potatoes cook up cauliflower and then mash it. Mashed cauliflower resembles mashed potatoes but has a lighter texture. Serve it with your next roast beef and nobody may even notice the difference.
For stews and meals with sauces serve red or green sliced cabbage instead of noodles, rice or potatoes. The cabbage is high in fibre and low in fat and keeps you feeling full for a long time.
When it comes to summer time eating a burger on a bun is accepted by everyone. On the Paleo diet you will want to cut out the bun! Makes you feel like you are stripping the burger naked! But there are other ways to dress up your burger that won’t have you feeling as though you are missing out on something.
Substitute your bun for lettuce leaves and wrap your burger up in it. You are still holding your burger in something but you are making a healthier choice. Plus you are not ruining your Paleo Diet.
When it comes to eating breakfast toast seems to go with just about everything. Try eating your eggs with tomatoes, peppers and mushrooms instead. You will feel full and you may just find that you didn’t miss the toast at all!
By being a little creative you can learn to live without bread, potatoes and pasta. Your body will thank you for putting less high carb food into it and your weight loss efforts will be rewarded.
