If you are wondering how to eat noodles while sticking to your weight-loss routine, voodles are your answer.
Voodles are a dream come true for pasta lovers trying to cut unnecessary carbs and calories.
While it’s hard to find a dinner more satisfying than a steaming plate of flavorful pasta, you’re well aware of just how fattening traditional pasta is.
Voodles, or also known as veggie noodles are a perfect alternative for any pasta dish.
And I almost hate to use the word alternative, because if prepared right, voodles can taste even better than regular pasta noodles.
Veggies are packed with 100% natural flavor and can be just as filling.
So, let’s not give up on our favorite pasta dishes…let’s just make these dishes lighter, healthier and just as delicious by using noodles made from vegetables, rather than traditional, carb-laden pasta.
If you’re new to cooking with veggie noodles, you’re in for a treat!
It’s simple and satisfying to create comforting guilt-free pasta dinners.
Spaghetti squash is the easiest of all the veggie noodles to prepare since the noodles are already formed in nature.
When you cut a spaghetti squash in half and you’ll find a mess of seeds and stings in the center. But that mess can easily be turned into deliciousness.
Spaghetti quash is low in calories, sodium, and fat, but high in vitamins and fiber.

Zucchini is such a tender squash that it doesn’t require much cooking.
A serving of zucchini meets over 50% of your daily Vitamin C need, and is a high source of potassium, all while meeting your low calorie needs.

Another option for making zucchini noodles is with a spiral slicer –a little kitchen contraption that spirals zucchini through grating holes to create long, spaghetti-like noodles.
While zucchini and spaghetti squash noodles are light and soft, noodles made from butternut squash are a bit heartier.
Butternut squash is loaded with nutrients such as potassium, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and folate. It is also known an anti-inflammatory food because of its high antioxidant content.
Now, there’s a little bit of technique involved with cutting your butternut squash and it’s best to run it through a spiral slicer.

Talk about truly guilt-free pasta – one made from asparagus spears!
Rather than serve this one with traditional spaghetti sauce (although you could) I’ve included a dressing to toss the noodles with and I recommend serving it with meatballs for some added protein.
This bright-green veggie is packed with essential vitamins and minerals like vitamins A, C, E, K, and B6, as well as folate, iron, copper, calcium, and fiber.
