Hi Guys
Thank you for the replies.I dont have a waitrose near me.Thats a shame:cry:.
The spaghetti squash is different from the butternut squash.It has more fibrous flesh which can be used as a spaghetti substitute.
Where as the butternut squash has a firm flesh and can be used for lovely chips,soups and lots more.I love butternut soup but I dont think its allowed on induction.
Ive found the seeds so might have a go at growing my own,if I cant find them.

According to Jim's list in the 'So your thinking of starting Atkins' thread and my Atkins book (latest addition)celeriac is allowed during induction :confused:

In moderation, it's a little carby, but in the original '72 version it was allowed yes.
