It’s no secret that carbs can kill your dreams of getting slim and trim.
Want to see some results and keep them, you have to manage your carbs. That means, dropping the breads, pastas, grains and starches. “But I love spaghetti and sandwiches” and don’t want to lose the taste. The RunSPI Training Team is here to get you fit by cutting those carbs, maximizing your fiber and healthy green intake. In no time you’ll watch that waistline vanish.
You need some carbs for to maintain a proper diet, the biggest problem with Americans is the over indulgence and the over portioned helpings in nearly every meal.
Everything we’re about to show is vegan and gluten-free. Don’t let the hippie wording fool you, this is going to be delicious.
Zucchini noodles are inexpensive packed with fiber and can be eaten raw, sautéed, boiled, baked and marinated. It’s a culinary connoisseur’s dream. You can pick up a spiralizer cheap online or get one for a few extra bucks at some of the big box stores.
Zucchini noodles go great with as a spaghetti noodle substitute and work even better with a low calorie fettuccini dish.
Rice can be a big thing to give up but cauliflower is a great way to cut the carbs and still fill you up without getting you stuffed. You can eat it raw, sautéed with some salt and pepper and goes great in a black bean burrito. (Dang, I’m getting hungry already)
Before you knock it, you got to give it a go. Eggplant is great with any type of red sauce. Not everyone is a fan but the best part about eggplant is the taste and health benefits. With your spiralizer you can make really long thin noodles, or thick noodles that go great with soups. But for a great dish, bake them with some Italian spices and a bit of extra virgin olive oil for eggplant fries! (mouth watering goodness)
