Zoodles!

I need to know how many of you guys have already tried zoodles?  I know they’ve been around for a while now, but this summer was my first time experimenting with them and I quickly fell in love.

The reason why so many people love their zoodles is because they are just that good!  Zucchini has a surprising ability to take on the shape and texture of pasta and really holds up to a lot of different types of sauces and preparations (which I will be sharing soon).

And they happen to have a stellar nutritional profile (not hard to believe considering they are simply made form zucchini).  They’re a gluten-free, low carb, low calorie, nutrient dense alternative to pasta, so really what’s not to love?

There are several different tools you can use for making zoodles, but after experimenting with a few of them, my favorite is the Veggetti.  It’s small, easy to use, and makes great zoodles.

If you want to learn more about making zoodles and my 2 go-to ways for preparing them, be sure to watch the video below.  And be sure to come back later in the week, because I will be posting another video sharing 3 of my favorite zoodle recipes!

This is the tool I am using in the video:
