Just when I think you can’t get much better than spaghetti squash, Zucchini Noodles come and blow me away. They might be the most amazing invention since sliced bread (Ezekiel bread that is). All you need is a spiralizer, a few zucchinis, and a topping of your choice. I enjoyed them this weekend with homemade tomato sauce and a small serving of organic chicken breast. I really didn’t eat the chicken though because I was so full and satisfied from the heaping portion of zucchini.
This meal is a win win. The taste is, personally, just as satisfying as an indulgent Italian pasta dinner, and the nutritional benefits are vast. It’s loaded with vitamin C, folate, potassium, vitamin A, lutein, and zucchinis contain a high water content making them super low in calories. There are only about 45 calories in one zucchini which will give you one serving of your Zucchini Noodles. Now that is something to celebrate!
You can get as creative as you would like. In fact, any recipe that calls for pasta noodles can be made with Zucchini Noodles.
