is it really a miracle? my thoughts on the Miracle Noodle

Have you heard of these noodles? They are made of soluble plant fiber so they have no calories, no carbs, no protein, no fat… no nothing! For some reason there’s something about “no nothing” foods that creep me out. In fact, I have a couple of Walden Farms syrups that are also “no nothing” foods that also freaks me out. I keep thinking about what sorts of weird science has to happen in order to makes these things {hmmm… }. Ok, snap out of it! Let’s give them a try.

zucchini pasta for my low carb friends

zucchini pastaIn my post about buying a griddle I mentioned how much I like kitchen appliances and gadgets; the spiralizer is one of those. This one is really cool, it’s technically called a spiral vegetable slicer but spiralizer sounds better. You can do so many things with it, in fact, there’s an entire blog/website dedicated to it (Inspiralized is the site, check it out it has some great recipe ideas). Zucchini is definitely the “go-to” veggie but you can use it with potatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and squash. It comes with 3 blades; one makes “ribbons” and the other two make noodles (for thin and thick noodles).

If you are looking for a low carb meal, this one is pretty yummy and low carb friendly. No real recipe here, I just used the spiralizer on a zucchini and heated up some store bought tomato and basil sauce and added ground turkey to make it meaty. This was super easy to make, it took about 5 minutes. The zucchini is not cooked but you can if you want, I prefer mines raw.

This is what the spiralizer looks like and you can get it from Amazon for about $20-30. What’s your favorite kitchen appliance and/or gadget?
