Zucchini Noodles 10 Ways

Since my diabetes diagnosis in May, zucchini noodles have been a saving grace. I don’t eat much meat, so pasta creations were a bi-weekly occurrence in my kitchen. And I hear you, I too was skeptical about squash replacing my precious carbs but quickly found out it’s way more about the texture and shape than the actual thing. I also quickly found out that using a mandolin to shave down the zucchini into pasta-like strands is preferable to my initial method of using a vegetable peeler, which created something a little bit too wide. And no, you will not hear me ever refer to them as zoodles.

    Kelly! I have no idea how I missed that news, but I am so sorry, diabetes absolutely sucks! I have been type 1 since the tender age of 8. If you ever ever have any diabetes questions, feel free to email me! I don’t know if you’re type 1 or 2, or what sort of treatment plan you’re on, but it is possible to eat some carbs (although for the most part, I find it easier to avoid them). Seriously, feel free to be in touch if there’s anything I can do, or if you just need another diabetic shoulder to cry on!

    Great roundup! Thank you so much for including my recipes. As for diabetes, my mother is a Type 1 diabetic and the reason I found out about the spiralizer!
