If you are monitoring your macronutrients / calories but still want to enjoy the likes of Spaghetti Bolognese etc. Try replacing traditional spaghetti/ pasta with courgettes as they are lower in calories & carbohydrates ( spaghetti 30g of carbohydrates per 100g as appose to courgettes having around 5g of carbohydrates per 100g) .


1.Use a spiraliser to make spaghetti out of each courgette. Alternatively, cut slices lengthways using a vegetable peeler, stopping when the seeds are reached. Turn courgette over and continue ‘peeling’, discarding the seeds. Slice the courgette into thinner strips resembling spaghetti.

2. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat; cook and stir courgette in the hot oil for 1 minute. Add water and cook until courgette is softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Top with your favourite sauce or add any other precooked ingredients you like.
