re you looking to feel energized after every meal? If yes, the answer is simple and starts with replacing your carbohydrate intake with antioxidants and vitamins found in vegetables. Alternatives you can use as a substitute for traditional wheat noodles are spiraled zucchinis and squash, which allow you to eat more with no guilt. Swap out bad carbohydrates and replace them with organic and natural nutrients. A benefit of cooking and using alternative noodles is lower calorie options, meaning you lose more weight. Start living your healthy lifestyle by reducing your carb intake! Unlike wheat and pastas, vegetable noodles leave you feeling energized and light. You’ll be surprised how delicious vegetable noodles can taste!

There’s No Wrong Way To Noodle

Switch up the way you eat vegetables, salads and pasta. Choose the vegetable you want to substitute your pasta, then appropriately spiral and cook the ingredient. A variety of vegetable spirals can be found on Amazon or Williams Sonoma.

“As you get the hang of spiraling, try other fruits and vegetables such as apples, beets, broccoli and even their stems. Also use butternut squash, carrots, onions, pears, radishes, sweet potatoes, turnips, white potatoes and more! Have fun experimenting with both raw and cooked noodles. Like any worthwhile endeavor, spiralizing has a learning curve. Get the hang of it, and you’ll be noodling and zoodling like a pro.” -Dietitian and nutritionist, EA Stewart.
