Here is a great and healthier alternative to carb-laden pasta for people who’ve had gastric sleeve, bypass, and other weight-loss surgeries.
Benefits for People Who’ve had Bariatric Surgery
Spaghetti Squash is a great alternative for pasta because it is not as starchy. It has fewer calories. It has a good amount of vegetable servings and is better tolerated. It doesn’t sit as heavy in your stomach or your pouch.
- Depending on the size of yours, you can roast it anywhere from half an hour to 45 minutes.
- Essentially what you do is just scratch it with your folk to take out the “noodles”.
And there you go! One quick meal for you that is post-surgery approved.
