8 Benefits of Spiralizing

There’s no denying that spiralizing is a food trend that’s here to stay—and with good reason. Here are 8 benefits of jumping on the veggie noodle trend:

1. It’s healthy

Veggie noodles have fewer calories and carbs, plus more fiber than regular noodles. Check out the difference between 1 cup of cooked spaghetti and 1 cup of zucchini noodles:

Spaghetti vs. Zucchini
220 Calories 40
43 g Carbs 8 g
2.5 g Fiber 4 g

2. It’s for everyone

Whether you’re following a vegetarian, vegan, paleo, low-carb, or gluten-free diet (or just trying to eat healthier), veggie noodles are fit for the way you live.

3. Have guilt-free fettuccine & pasta any time

You can have your pasta and eat it, too. Veggie noodles let you enjoy the same great flavors you get from your favorite sit-down restaurants…with fewer calories.

68 g Fat 8 g
910 g Sodium 350 g

4. You can save money

A spiralized veggie noodle meal for the whole family, like Veggie Noodles with Greek Yogurt Alfredo Sauce or Zucchini Noodles with Crushed Tomato Sauce, costs less than a package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

5. They cook quickly

Veggie noodles are thoroughly cooked in less time than it takes to boil water! The shorter cook time also means more nutrients stay in your food.

6. Color + variety = healthy options

Adding colorful vegetables to your meals gives more variety, and can also provide more nutrients. Check out your local farmer’s market or grocery store and experiment with new foods.

7. It’s fun!

Kids (and adults) love to see veggies transformed into noodles. The fun colors and shapes can encourage kids to try new things.

8. It doesn’t stop at noodles

Even though they’re called noodles, you can use them for so much more. Try them in salads, soups, wraps, casseroles…the options are endless!
