Dieting Hack #2: Pasta, like traditional rice, is packed with calories and starchy carbohydrates that get in the way of your fat loss results.  So, rather than just eating a bowl of sauce, try this:

ZUCCHINI NOODLES:  Again, you must try this trick before you knock it.  I’ll admit, when I first heard of this, I was boggled.  In my carb-loving mind, I thought, why would anyone want to forsake the cozy comfort-food flavor of, say, a fettuccine Alfredo or saucy skillet with penne pasta?  But have you ever stopped to think that when you crave your favorite pasta dish, you’re actually just craving the sauce?  Pasta noodles alone are bland and unspectacular.  The magic, as well as the protein, is in the sauce.

Wash a zucchini, cut the ends and then run it through a spiralizer.  They’re sold everywhere and range from $10 – $80.

These raw, zucchini noodles do not require any cooking – simply throw them onto your plate and top with your favorite pasta sauce. (Of course, I’m assuming that you’re not going to use a white, cream-based sauce, but that’s another article for another day.)




With the pending chance of heavy rain this weekend, I will post the location of the SOLE SISTERS meet a little later.  In the likelihood of rain, we will meet at FIU so we can still get a good Saturday morning sweat!
