5 Zoodle Recipes Under 400 Calories

If you love pasta, but not all the carbs, calories and guilt that come with it, you’ve got two options: eat pasta (very) sparingly or try zoodles. While it’s not an apples-for-apples swap, veggie noodles (“zoodles”) have fewer calories and carbs and more fiber and nutrients. Pro tip: Prep and freeze zoodles and keep them on hand to reduce prep time.
