Yesterday I mentioned a whole grain pasta. Today I want to show you an alternative – spaghetti squash. This little guy is full of nutrients that make him superior to his grainy friend. 1 cup provides almost 10% of DI (daily intake) of Vitamin C. It is also a source of niacin, riboflavin, vitamin K, A and B-6. Want more fiber and magnesium in your diet? Spaghetti squash is the way to go. Bake it in an oven on 400 degrees (poke some holes in it first) or cut in half and microwave for 6 minutes. Although it does not taste exactly like pasta, this swap-out makes Italian cuisine enjoyable for weight-conscious boys and girls.
