Apple Avocado Zoodle Bowl

Apple Avocado Zoodle Bowl

The only thing more fun than saying "zoodles" is eating zoodles. If you don't know what that is, it's just a spiralized zucchini that is often used in place of pasta. There are so many variations of it now these days, that you could find at least 100 recipes on Pinterest. And the best part of this low-carb substitute is that you can eat it cooked or raw — whatever your heart desires!

For reference, I make my zoodles with the four-blade Paderno Spiralizer, which you can easily purchase on Amazon. I use the biggest blade (far left in picture below) to make the zoodles, but you can use the smaller blades too if you want.
