Size Up Your Spaghetti

I just found out from my friend YumSugar that today is National Spaghetti Day. Now you and I both know that pasta has been much maligned by all those no and low carb diets.

The truth is though, pasta is not bad for you as long as you control your portion size. I think that might be true for just about everything.

We're lucky that there are great products out there to help with measuring our uncooked noodles. So you can be sure you are not over indulging before the spaghetti even hits the water. Buy a spaghetti measuring tool from Amazon.

If you're especially handy, you can make your own spaghetti measuring tool using instructions from Shop Smith Hands On as your guide.

Fit's Tip: If you haven't already, you should give whole wheat spaghetti a try. While it may have an unfamiliar and strong flavor, it is considerably higher in fiber while lower in carbs than the basic semolina variety.
