Spaghetti Squash

Swap calorie- and carb-heavy pasta with light and delicious spaghetti squash. It forks into long strands that you eat just like noodles, but contains just 40 calories per cup, thanks to the vegetable’s low starch and high water content. Toss a giant mound of squash strands with your favorite low-cal sauce, like marinara or creamy part-skim ricotta cheese. You can save up to 500 calories per meal every time you make this slimming noodle swap, which means you get to enjoy “pasta” as often as you like and still lose weight.
