The Benefits of Zoodles
Spiral a fresh batch of zucchini and yellow squash noodles to bump up your vegetable game while decreasing your intake of heavy, refined grain pastas that drive inflammation and increase risk of cardiovascular disease. Zucchini is a fresh and nutritious summer squash vegetable that is known for having a high water content (about 95%) like it’s cucumber and melon families. Vegetables like zucchini can make you feel more full and satiated because of the higher water content PLUS it’s rich source of soluble fiber. What’s even more impressive is that zucchini packs in antioxidants such as beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin—two of which can help improve eye health.
