I have this contraption (click here to see it, or get one for yourself) that turns just about any vegetable into pasta!:) I love this little gadget (which I actually bought at a Goodwill for $2) and use it all the time! It gives you an angel hair consistency. Here - I took a raw zucchini and turned it into roughly 1 1/2 cups pasta! I then used some salt free seasonings in my cabinet to season it, and tossed it into the microwave for a minute!:) How's that for high fiber and low carb!? You can do this with a large carrot, with summer squash, with apples, with cucumbers - basically whatever floats your boat! 

Calories 29 for the entire zucchini
Carbs 7 
Fiber 3
Protein 1

You could literally eat that all day long and stay completely full and not hit your calorie requirements!:) That's my kind of food! (I wouldn't suggest you do that though. I don't advocate rut eating and if the nearly raw fiber didn't have your butt screaming within hours, you would be missing out on other important nutrients). 

I of course - used one of the salmon that I made up the other day to set atop my bed of "pasta"

Hi Mom! Ill get a photo posted tomorrow of the cool gadget! Looks pretty much the same as the one on the link provided though. I may do a video so I can show just how simple and quick it is to use!:) And it's cheaper than a spaghetti squash!
