Have you tried Zoodles?

The latest craze in foodie world  is spiralizing vegetables, in all good fun it looks incredibly cool but more importantly is a healthier, low carb alternative to rice or wheat noodles and pasta. Zucchini is the main attraction of spiralizing though you can use other vegetables such as pumpkin, sweet potato or broccoli stalks. The concept of having raw vegetables may be a little hard to get your head around at first so I suggest you start with the zucchini and build up to the others. All it needs is to be mixed through your favourite pasta sauce or with your salad ingredients and dressing, its that easy.

Lets get something straight, if you have your heart set on a bowl of pasta go have a bowl of pasta it may look the same but it doesn’t exactly taste the same. Although I do love it, and paired with other tasty ingredients you have a very nutritious meal indeed.
