Twist and munch your way to health with these low-carb dishes featuring spiralized veggie noodles in place of pasta.
Spiralized root vegetables offer the same starchy, twirly fun as noodles, but with a fraction of the calories and a much lower glycemic index.

As the weather gets cooler, if you’re like most of us, you’re craving comfort foods. Like noodles: dense, starchy, carb-y piles of them, lavished with butter and smothered in rich, creamy sauces. And if you’re like most of us, you’re trying to convince yourself, unsuccessfully, that broccoli florets will be equally satisfying.

The solution: make your own noodles out of vegetables, and suddenly, a whole world of healthy possibilities unfolds. Spiralized root vegetables offer the same starchy, twirly fun as noodles, but with a fraction of the calories and a much lower glycemic index. Plus, root vegetables are high in fiber and antioxidants, and they’re naturally gluten-free. And spiralizing is easy, fast, fun, and cheap: most spiralizers cost less than $40.

This fall, swap your starchy, carb-y noodles and dig into these hearty, twirly treats.
