Why not just have pasta you ask? 

Well, you either follow one of the diets listed above due to food allergies or preferences or you’re like me and you really like dessert. I would rather eat zucchini noodles, save 200 calories and have 2 cookies for dessert. That is not the necessarily the healthiest thing to do, but that is how I roll. I know I should cut down on my sugar but I pick my battles and I do the best I can. I’ll probably have the cookies, pasta or no pasta. Pasta is boring to me and I’d rather get some nutrients out of my vehicles for delicious sauces like thai peanut or vodka sauce. If you are looking to just cut 200 calories from your diet, then skip the pasta and the cookies.

    I am right there with ya girl about pasta. I have been lucky to not really be a pasta person. Don’t get me wrong, I love tomato sauce, but I prefer alternatives for some reason. One of my favorite alternatives (aside from zoodles), is Spaghetti Squash. I make a large one every week as part of my meal prep. I top it with spinach and home made pasta sauce with vegetables and crushed tomatoes! I also make a pasta-less lasagna with zucchini, eggplant, and Portobello mushrooms (and whatever else I feel like throwing in there). It really confirms the fact that I don’t think I ever need noodles again!

    The black bean noodles look interesting! I will have to give them a try! Thanks for the recommendation!

    I seriously think the spiraliser is the best invention!! I often do zoodles, and it’s amazing to think that it tastes JUST like pasta but I’m getting the nutrients from the veggie. Win!
