When eating a paleo or keto diet, it can be tough to give up noodles. All the guys in my family are HUGE pasta fans, so it would be a massive sacrifice for them to eliminate those from their diets. One alternative, is spiralizing zucchini into noodles to make zoodles. Some people enjoy the substitution, others do not. For those of you who do enjoy eating zoodles, I hope your family will enjoy this recipe for Asian Zucchini Noodles.
