LOL, unless you're on the pre-op liquid diet, or post op lower stages or are on full liquids... ;)

See, there's always free cheese in a trap.

I agree with the poster who suggested spiralized vegetables. Spiralize some zucchini (or buy some already spiralized) and saute it until it's al dente. Then eat it just like you would noodles.

OR just eat the meat and the sauce in a bowl.

I LOVE spiralized zucchini. It cooks up fast, is delicious, and functions the same as “real” Pasta.

Had spaghetti squash. Meh. It works, but to me there was something "off" about having it with my spaghetti sauce. Spiralized zucchini...Much better!

Now, I'm really curious about the Shirataki Noodles. @ms.sss Have you tried them? How are they? Taste? Texture?

Yes, I eat them quite often. They have the consistency of al dente-like rice noodles. They are pretty tasteless on their own, they take on a bit of the flavour of whatever you add to them. I've eaten them with sauces on top, in Soups, part of salads, etc. They are VERY filling.

Now that I am in maintenance I do have spaghetti on occasion. Spaghetti squash is a great alternative if you are in weight loss phase.

Oh I heart all of these subs. Truly don't miss Pasta anymore because of them. :) I also love any veggie in spirals:

broccoli

cauliflower

kohlrabi

turnip

daikon

rutabaga

all the squashes

beets

carrots

english cucumber

I feel like Bubba Gump! ;) On love Shirataki noodles and shirataki rice (especially the rice when mixed with caulirice).

Do you spiral them yourself? If so what's good to use?
