Healthy Swaps to Carb-Heavy Meals


By Cooking Panda

Pasta is the ultimate comfort food, after all who doesn’t love a big bowl of carbs? Oh right, our waistline. In an effort to live a clean, healthy lifestyle we’ve come up with recipes just as satisfying, without the carbs. What is this magic? One word: zoodles.

Zoodles (aka zucchini noodles) are all the rage at just 23 calories and 4 grams of carbohydrates per cup – they’re less than half the calories of traditional pasta like spaghetti! Not only that but they are the perfect noodle replacement for any dish. Zoodles often replace Italian noodles, but why stop there? Noodles in ramen, lo-mein, pho can all be replaced with these easy-to-create veggie noodles.
