It’s Noodle (I mean, Zoodle) Month!
It’s Noodle Month and this brings up all kinds of questions like what noodles are healthiest? Are noodles bad for me? Are there any low carb noodles? What about gluten free noodles? Sometimes, with all the nutrition information out there, it becomes hard to eat because we get so bogged down in the details.
Well, it shouldn’t have to be that hard. I have recipe on my site for Chicken Lo Mein. This is a recipe I came up with because my kids asked for it. I’ve made it with regular linguini noodles, gluten free pastas made from either brown rice or quinoa, I’ve eaten it plain and I’ve made it even more nutritious by serving it with ZOODLES! This is actually my favorite and this recipe makes it easy to sneak it in…even if you have to do half zoodles and half regular noodles. I don’t think any picky eaters will know the difference.
For zucchini noodles, I just add them raw into to the recipe per the instructions for adding the regular noodles and cook a little longer so that they become heated through. Here’s the best part…the nutrition for zucchini is outstanding. For one zucchini, you get only 35 calories, 7 grams of carbohydrates, 2.5 grams of fiber, 2.5 grams of protein, as well as a ton of vitmamins and minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, B6, vitamin c, folate, vitamin k, magnesium and phosphorus.
Now, you can make your own with an inexpensive spiralizer or you can buy them spiralized for you. You can enjoy delectable dishes like Chicken Lo Mein while boosting your nutrition and lowering your carb intake. Try it! I believe you’ll like it!
