Worth It Wednesday: Oodles Of Zoodles


If you’re eating low carb or sneakily trying to incorporate more veggies in your life, you’ve probably heard of zoodles.

If you haven’t, zoodles come from zucchini that have been run through a spiralizer, to make noodle shaped strands. From there, you can top them with marinara sauce, use in salads, top with an egg, etc. It’s an alternative to using potatoes and pasta. 

If you don’t have a spiralizer or aren’t sure you would even like zoodles, look no further than your produce section. Grocery stores are carrying pre-packaged, already spiraled zucchini. I’ve also seen sweet potato spirals and a mix of zucchini and yellow squash.

You pay for the convenience for sure. A package of zoodles at H-E-B runs nearly $4. That’s quite a mark up when you can buy whole squash for less than $2 a pound. 

However, I like the idea of “try before you buy.”

Give the zoodles a spin to make sure it’s something you and your family will enjoy. If so, you can find spiralizers at all price points. I got mine at Walmart and it works great. 

If you’re already into zoodles and need to get a meal on the table fast, the pre-packaged ones are a time saver.

So are pre-spiraled zoodles worth it? I say yes!

Editors note: Many times I can use these pre-packaged options for my personal meal while my family eats the regular pasta. This saves my meals and makes it less of a fight at dinner time!
