If you follow a version of the paleo diet called AIP – otherwise known as the autoimmune protocol – you may already be BFFs with the zoodle, or zucchini noodle.
Born from memories of pasta and a desire to transport saucy bites into your mouth, zoodles and other veggie analogs made with carrots, beetroot, sweet potatoes, and cucumbers make your plate look like a party. More importantly, they fill a void. Because even as you get rid of noxious pro-inflammatory foods, chances are you miss noodles. And spaghetti. And long strips of linguini.
Fortunately, we got you covered.
To create zoodles and other veggie noodles, you will need a spiralizer or a julienne vegetable peeler. And to make your life easier, meal plan your zoodle recipes. Set aside some time early in the week to prep zoodles and store them. This way, getting food on the table is a snap.
