Day 27

InstasizeImage (1)Hey Guys!

Well it was a BIG day for me because my Spiralizer came in the mail today and now all of my zoodle dreams can finally come true.

Zoodle is short for zucchini noodles, which is just one of the miraculous paleo pasta substitutes you can make with your Spiralizer. You can also make swoodles (sweet potato noodles), boodles (beet noodles), and even turdles (my terribly awkward name for turnip noodles). 

The meal options you can make with vegetable-based noodles are endless, and, when equipped with this new spiralizer, I mean, the sky’s the limit – dream big, go crazy with your slicing and dicing.

Here’s some delish dishes to get ya started!

– ZOODLES –

Creamy Avocado Pesto Zoodles from the Iron You:

That would probably taste pretty gewd with some lemon grilled chicken if you’re lookin’ for protein.

Chicken Zoodle Soup from Sugar-Free Mom:

Zoodles with Beef Sauce from Healthy Living How To:

– SWOODLES –

Swoodles with Chorizo and Orange from Drizzle & Dip

I’d be lying if I said that this soup didn’t scare me a little bit – something about gazpacho freaks me out, but I do love beets so this is one I might actually try.

Beet Noodles with Sausage and Kale from Grow.Cook.Heal:

Now that you’ve got noodles for days, go ahead and try one of these for lunch, dinner, or both. And if you want an idea for breakfast today, try this Butternut Squash Noodle Breakfast Skillet
