Zucchini Noodles

If you’ve never tried zucchini noodles, or zoodles, you’re missing out on a fun way to eat vegetables. These noodles are not actually noodles at all, but zucchini sliced into spirals to eat like pasta. If you don’t have a spiralizer at home, no problem. To make meal prep easier, many supermarkets carry pre-made zoodles. Simply toss them into your rice bowl and you’re good to go — no cooking required!
