Zoodles for Your Noodles

zoodles2

If you want to be super hip get a Golden doodle, walk the doodle to the store to get some zucchinis to make some Zoodles.   Don’t tell the kids they are not eating normal noodles, they wont know, zoodles are fucking a fucking awesome mom tool for getting good stuff into your kids tummies.  As they eat them up in my head I say, “hahahahah momma tricked you little stinkers.” SCORE!

Just look at all the health benefits a Zucchini has to offer:

  • high in potassium
  • Low calorie and high in fiber
  • high in antioxidants
  • no cholesterol or unhealthy fats
  • B-complex vitamins
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Magnesium
  • iron
  • zinc
  • Manganese

*** note that most of the fiber and antioxidants reside in the skin of the zucchini so try to keep the skin on.

Zucchini is technically a fruit but we all think of it as a vegetable, maybe because of its color and taste.  Whatever you want to categorize it, zucchini is good for you, fucking eat it.

To make Zoodles you need a spirlaizer, these are very easy to use and cheap to buy.  Once you spiral the zucchini just sauté it in a pan with whatever seasoning you would like. A favorite of mine is a home made vegan pesto sauce to pour over the noodles after they have been cooked.  I love Daniel Walkers recipe : DAIRY FREE PESTO

Really use zoodles just like you would pasta, get creative and have fun zoodling 🙂
