LA Weight Loss - Is jarred spaghetti sauce a vegetable?

01-10-2006, 02:10 PM
I ate 1/3 cup chole wheat pasta with a tiny bit of "Ragu Carb Control" spaghetti sauce. I didn't want to do a carb craver, but what would the sauce be? I asked my counselor, of course they didn't know.

I would count it as a condiment.

I think that the sodium in regaular sauce, reagardless of the low fat, low sugar is too much for the plan on the regular. i think I read in the book somewhere about lowsodium sauce, but have never been able to find that in the stores.

i make my own sauce for my pasta with roma tomatoes, and spices that works really well and then i can really count what I eat, but since your asking about what you have already ate, I would say count it as 2 of your condiments and try to stay very low on the soium for the day, maybe get some extra water in.

My counselor (who is VERY good -- I guess I'm fortunate) said that the Sal and Judy's sauce had the same sodium as a smaller serving of some kind of salsa, so she allowed a client to use it as a condiment.
