Zesty Zoodles

 

Zoodles are an easy, low-carb,  and nutritious alternative to regular refined pasta  that’s  frequently consumed as part of the Standard American Diet (SAD). When making the transition  to a whole food based diet, pasta is often missed by carb lovers everywhere.  Zoodles however, allow you to still enjoy your favorite pasta based dishes without having to sacrifice taste and ease of cooking! All you need is a Spiralizer and the possibilities are endless!
