Noodles are an all-time favorite, but they often get a negative look because of their high carb content and likelihood to contain tons of (less-healthy in most cases) calories and fat. However, none of that is the case with noodles like these because they’re plant-based, lower in calories, carbs and the best part is that they’re loaded with nutrients. Zucchini squash is a great source of heart-healthy potassium as well as vitamins like A and C as well as some cancer-protective beta carotene. Additionally, the asparagus in the recipe is also a source of gut-healthy prebiotics that help to promote healthy bacteria that lives in our guts (important for so many things!).
