Zesty Lemon & Herb Zoodles

Who doesn’t love a tasty bowl of noodles? Well, a bowl of noodles just got a whole lot healthier with this dish of “zoodles” (zucchini noodles). They’re made using a spiralizer (inexpensive and easy to find), but you can also make them by cutting zucchini into small, thin and noodle-shaped slices.
Zucchinis are a type of squash that are low in calories (33 calories per 1 medium-sized zucchini) and a good source of vitamins A and C. Zucchini is also a good source of potassium, which can act as an electrolyte in the body.

This recipe is particularly delicious due to the addition of various herbs and lemon that add a zesty flavor. Try mixing up this recipe by adding some of your favorite spices and classic pasta-sauces.
