Our Friends from Greatist have compiled a list of 83 top picks, guaranteed to make the next meal healthier.
Here are five of the smartest carb replacements for your next meal :
Brown rice for white rice: When white rice is processed, the "brown" layer gets stripped away, cutting out essential nutrients like fiber.
Quinoa for couscous: Couscous i made from processed wheat flour, quinoa on the other hand is a whole-grain superfood packed with proteins and nutrients.
Zucchini ribbons for pasta: My personal favorite are the ribbon strips of zucchini. They taste great with every pasta sauce.
Pita for bread: One 4-inch whole-wheat pita runs around 80 calories and only 1 gram of fat (varies from brand to brand). Two slices of whole-wheat bread typically comes in at around 138 calories!
Mashed cauliflower for mashed potatoes. Cauliflower only has a fraction of the calories of potatoes and it's nearly impossible to taste the difference.
