Fun Facts:

Spiral

Zoodles are simply zucchini which have been sliced thin to resemble noodles. Many clever names have been associated with this trendy take on the classic zucchini: zusketti or zuttuccine. Whatever name or however you prepare it, zoodles may just be your new favorite pasta alternative. They’re a great way to swap out all of those carbs in the dishes you crave while increasing your daily vegetable intake. For parents of picky eaters, they may be your ticket to getting something green into your little ones’ bellies.

Not only are zoodles delicious, they’re also low in calories and boast a rich nutritional portrait. Serves as a good source of vitamin C, while also being rich in anti-oxidants, such as lutein, zeaxanthin, and manganese. The dietary fiber in zucchini helps to lower cholesterol and promotes healthy digestion. In addition, the magnesium and potassium found in zucchini help reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes, while also lowering blood pressure.
