What do mac and cheese, stacks of pancakes, and bowls of pasta all have in common? If you answered, “Umm, they’re delicious,” you’d be right. But they’re also heavy in carbs and are responsible for the weight gain. Eating fewer carbs can help you lose weight. In fact, low carb diets are probably the best way to get to your target weight. Listed below are a few substitutes that will help you shed some kilos!
Rice is the star ingredient of most delicious dishes. If you are a rice lover, nothing can be more satisfying than eating a bowl full of biryani or dal chawal. Rice is cheap on the pocket, easy to get and quick to me. However, it’s also very high in carbs and white rice is very refined which makes it doubly bad if you are watching your carb intake. To substitute rice, you can try cauliflower rice. Simply take a head of cauliflower, grate it, and then cook in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat, drain, and season with salt and pepper or maybe a little butter. The texture is similar to rice but it contains next to no carbs or calories. It’s also super filling!
