Carb Substitute | Spinach
I can't say that I've cut carbs out of my diet completely - I have a wife who makes amazing bread and growing up in Hawaii, white rice is part of every meal - the stars just aren't aligned for me to cut them out completely. What I have been able to do however, is limit my carbs and limit myself to the right type.
Every now and then however, there's a dish that you would normally serve over a bead of rice or a plate of pasta. I find that situations like that are the hardest for me to resist the mighty carbohydrate. Recently I've started substituting spinach for certain types of carbs. It obviously doesn't work for all meals, however I have begun putting different dishes over a bed of spinach as opposed to a bed of rice or pasta. Not only is spinach great for you, but the dent that it'll make on your carb count is minimal.
You should try it some time.
