How to Fall in Love with Zoodles


Kari - Jenny Craig

Seeking a creative way to eat more vegetables? Try ‘spiralizing’ your potassium-rich zucchini or beta-carotene packed carrots into noodles aka zoodles. Zoodles are a healthy, low-carb replacement for traditional pasta and are a nutritious addition to your next Jenny Craig entrée.

Whether you want to infuse it into your Chicken Fettucine or add a fresh twist on a salad, spiralizing your vegetables is a fun and easy way to pair veggies with your meals (and sneak in nutrition for your kids, too). Just pick up an inexpensive spiralizer tool and start turning to create thin vegetable noodles from zucchini, carrots, squash and sweet potatoes. Fall in love with these five ways to eat zoodles and other delicious veggie noodle pairings.

 

Pair it as a side

Firm and fresh vegetables are perfect for spiralizing and taste great when tossed with a dash of olive oil and your favorite herb seasoning in a hot skillet. Pair your zoodles with a variety of Jenny Craig meals, such as the Ramen Noodle Bowl with Chicken & Veggies or Loaded Baked Potato. 

 

Make a salad

If you’re tired of romaine lettuce, you can instead create a salad full of tasty textures with your spiralized medley of zucchini, carrots and yellow squash. Add more Fresh & Free Additions, including diced onions and tomatoes, and then toss with Jenny Craig’s light Balsamic Dressing for a fresh, unique twist on a garden salad.

 

Replace pasta

Zoodles are a delicious and low-carb alternative to traditional spaghetti noodles. Just spiralize and microwave your serving of zoodles for three minutes and then top with 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce, 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese, garlic, chopped onions and Italian seasoning. Buon appetito!

 

Top your sandwich

Amp up your veggies on Jenny Craig sandwiches, like the Grilled Chicken Sandwich and the Classic Cheeseburger, by making a zoodle slaw. Swap out cabbage by spiralizing zucchini and carrots and mix it with 1 tablespoon of fat-free mayonnaise and a dash of fresh or dried herbs. This slaw is also a great topping for the Tuna Dill or Chicken Cranberry Salad Kits.

 

Bulk up soup

Turn a bowl of soup into a nutritious, hearty meal with your zoodles. Bulk up Jenny Craig’s Creamy Tomato Vegetable Soup or the Chunky Vegetable Medley Soup with spiralized zoodles and carrots for a rich, homestyle soup perfect for those first chilly autumn days.
