Learn how to make an alternative to spaghetti: Fresh zucchini noodles! Fitness magazine's Nutrition Editor, Juno Demelo, demonstrates the simple steps.
So zucchini has 20 calories per cup versus a 175 in spaghetti, to turn zucchini into a substitute for those spaghetti noodles, just get yourself a julienne peeler. Mine's from Oxo, it costs about $10. And just slide it down the length of the squash. And you can also do this with carrots by the way. And then just separate the strands with your hands. I find it's easiest to do this in a big bowl. And vioala, serve them raw with marinara, or sauté them with a little olive oil first.
