First off Happy first day of 2018, I had such an amazing year and I am so excited to see what 2018 brings me. I discussed my 2018 goals in my last blog post, here. Today I am enjoying my day off with the pups & Jake. I hope you all have an amazing year.

I have been enjoying the high carb life lately but as the new year approaches and I get closer to a show my macros are going to start lowering. When you are lower carb it’s all about volume. Today I am going to be sharing some of my favorite low carb substitutes since it is the New Year and everyone love the “new year, new me” I thought it was perfect to share this blog post for the day.

1. Rice: A cup of jasmine rice is 45 carbs. A great substitute for rice is going to be cauliflower rice. A cup of cauliflower rice is going to be 4 carbs. A huge difference. A great recipe I love to make with the cauliflower rice because obviously it doesn’t taste as good but making a chicken “fried rice” is so yummy. I will mix different veggies in there with chicken and 1 egg and boom. A great yummy low carb meal. 

2. Pasta: I mean who doesn’t love pasta? Towards the end of my revise diet I was starting to have more pasta because it is so high in carbs. A low carb option for pasta would be spaghetti squash. 1 cup of spaghetti squash is 5.5 carbs compared to the 40-60 grams of carbs in pasta.

3. French Fries: French fries are one of America’s favorites because I swear you can order it almost any place you go to order food. But they are also fried and not the best for you. A great low carb option would be baked zucchini strips. French fries range anywhere from 40-70 grams of carbs per serving where zucchini strips could be anywhere from 10-15 grams depending on the serving size. Also al restaurants they usually serve you was bigger portion sizes just FYI.

4. Bread: Who doesn’t love bread? Bread is seriously life lol. I enjoy having my peanut butter and jelly as well as avocado toast. I get the sodium free rice cakes and they are amazing. You can top it with your avocado or peanut butter and jelly & I promise it is just as good. Try this out and let me know what you think.

Some great low carb meals I love to make are: Mushroom pizzas, lettuce wrapped tacos, zucchini lasagna, chicken stuffed celery sticks, eggplant pizza bites, and halo top.

I hope you all enjoyed my low carb options let me know if you end up trying any! Also, have an amazing year everyone!
