Beyond Zoodles: 6 Alternative Pastas, Ranked. by Kristina LaRue, RD, CSSD, LDN. September 20, 2018. 3 Comments. Share it: You’re probably familiar with.

“Zoodles” or zucchini noodles are made by spiralizing zucchinis into noodle-shaped pieces that serve as a great pasta alternative. Zoodles can be served raw or cooked. If you prefer softer and starchier zoodles, you may opt to cook them by simply sautéing them in a pan with olive oil for a few minutes. You can also “sweat” the zoodles in an oven: place the prepared zoodles on a cookie sheet lined with paper towels and sprinkle them with salt.

6 healthy, low-carb, and gluten-free alternatives to pasta. Whether you’re new to spiralizing or a longtime pro, you probably love that spiralizing your vegetables gives you a more nutritious version of pasta and noodles. Instead of eating processed flour pasta, you’re eating a bowl of vegetables! And although spiralizing is the best, there are several [ ]. Zucchini noodles, also known as zoodles, are a great low-carb alternative to pasta.

From chicken noodle soup to spaghetti, these zoodle recipes are delicious. The spiralized veggie trend all started with zucchini noodles. Made from just zucchini that’s been spiralized or peeled into a noodle-like shape, a ¾-cup serving contains about 15 calories and 3 grams of carbs. If you have a countertop spiralizer or a handheld tool, you can make these at home relatively cheaply (see our best spiralizers here).A more expensive but convenient.

There are tons of other gluten-free pastas to try like corn pasta, lentil pasta, soba noodles (look for 100 percent buckwheat soba noodles to stay gluten-free) and chickpea noodles. Do some experimenting and taste-testing, and you’re sure to find a healthy alternative to pasta. Shulman swears by zoodles not just as a pasta alternative, but as a salad base, too.”One of them is Asian zucchini noodle salad,” she says. “I also spiralize watermelon radishes. Pasta vs Zoodles. Pasta 1 cup cooked = 221 calories – 43g carbs.

Zucchini 1 cup = 25 calories – 4.6g carbs and additional vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants not found in processed pasta. There are generally two ways to make zoodles. Using a spiraliser machine with a handle that you turn to create the ribbons of zoodles.

It has suction. At 6.5 grams of carbs per 3.5 ounces (100 grams), spaghetti squash only contains about 20% of the carbs you’d expect in the same quantity of pasta (1, 2). At the same time, it’s much richer in.

List of related literature:

First, most of the 100 percent whole-wheat and 100 percent whole-grain pastas fell quickly to the bottom of the rankings, garnering descriptions like mushy, doughy, sour, and fishy.

  • A family member bought me a zoodler for my birthday, and I was hopeful but also skeptical about trying it. I followed your recipe tonight, and my parents and I loved it! This recipe is definitely going to be in my meal plan.

  • Spaghetti Zoodles!�� Everything you want in spaghetti minus the carbs. No bloat, no inflammation afterwards and a delicious meal for the whole family. Winner-winner-spaghetti dinner!�� Recipe is in the description box below the video.⬇️

  • Can you make a video on whether if creatine is good or bad for the immune system? There seems to be a fair amount of confusion surrounding it.

  • Is there any place on the Keto Diet for wheat pasta? I gave up “regular” pasta some time ago and found I actually prefer the taste of wheat pasta. I don’t have it often, maybe once a month. (That’s not a lot, right?)
    Anywho, I want to start the Keto Diet so I’ve been checking out your videos. Give it to me straight: Will I have to give up wheat pasta forever?

  • I literally just made this and it came out sooo good. The only is I forgot to buy basil so I used dried basil since that’s all I had. And I used almonds instead. I also added water ��

  • Hello, big fan of the channel. Doing low carb, and IF. I just came across this article. Any thoughts? https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a26907351/low-carb-diet-atrial-fibrillation/?utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=socialflowFBRW&utm_medium=social-media

  • Thank you so much for this valuable overview. You keep bringing up the latest and newest trends, which is super cool. I called my Asian store this morning, and they sell palm hearts in glasses (not in tins I am thrilled!!!) for a reasonable price.
    Shirtake/konjac noodles I have eaten frequently. Now that I have learnt that eating them reduces the hunger hormone level, I am definitely going to eat them more regularly. The important thing is to drink a lot of water when eating konjac.

  • can you please talk about raw nuts vs roasted nuts? or nut butters that use raw nuts with a bit of oil vs roasted nuts that have their own oils?

  • I enjoy pasta and i will continue eating it. Life is meant to be enjoyed. Dont waste your precious time here on earth trying to be sexy and impress other people.

  • Boy! I love my Zoodles! I wish Spaghetti Squash was available here. Weird that it is not here in Rural Mexico. Hearts of Palm bother me a bit, as I worry about its overall sustainability and ethical harvesting. Last two, only online, from the US with a 50% mark up, so Fine! Sticking to Zoodles. First regular dish I ever switched to Keto was a very basic Spaghetti Dish that we love with lots of garlic, mushrooms, parsley, olive oil and Spanish or Portuguese style Chorizo. Yummy, but oh so fattening if served over the usual box of pasta. Zoodles cleaned that up in a flash!! Thanks Thomas. Great Info as usual.

  • It’s my frist time trying „fasting” and I’m still new to all of this, maybe I’ll try keto one day, but right now I have a ton of questions in mind. One important, as I am from Italy, eating 2/3 whole grain pasta in a week it’s a good idea, for example with tuna, and in other occasions change with rice?

  • Can you make a video on whether if creatine is good or bad for the immune system? There seems to be a fair amount of confusion surrounding it.

  • Hi I’m a new subscriber and am loving ur info thanks I have a question are u a type o blood type? And if so are u ok not eating meat? People tell me grains make people gain weight?

  • I’m a diehard zoodle fan and just want to say they are actually EASY to make. I have tried many different types of spiralizers, one being the $100 kitchenaid attachment you mentioned and found them all to be cumbersome and a pain to clean — until I found a little handheld spiralizer called Vegeti for $10 on Amazon. This thing makes zoodles almost effortlessly and it requires no electricity. I make zoodles a couple times a week now!

  • Pro tip: Cut the avocado into quarters (half the halves) then peel. The peel comes off cleanly and flawlessly due to the corners. No “spooning” required.

  • Thanks so much for this Sis! I’m glad you mentioned the water content of the noodles because I would’ve boiled them instead of stir frying and probably would’ve wound up with zucchini soup ��

  • Zucchini pasta is ok but the rest are nasty. Those konjac noodles are not practical for a family. You’ll have to buy so much packs

  • You can’t put on weight from pasta! It’s just wheat! What will cause weight gain is oily pasta sauces. Thomas is just here to push products you don’t need. Fat makes you fat. Check out Durianrider’s channel.

  • Thomas, congrats for sharing amazing knowledge and tips with us! What do you think of a “tricky chocolate” smoothie to break a long 20h fast? (pure cacao, brewer’s yeast, pure curcumin, fresh lemon/lime juice and water)��

  • I made mines today they were so good only thin is I used grape seed oil because I didn’t have olive oil. I only had to use 2 zucchini for a bowl full Anyway mines came out more on the watery kinda mushy side but I still ate it I think I left it in to long. How much of this I can eat just in case I get hunger is it ok to eat two bowls? Also I put turkey meat balls in it I bought those from Walmart great value kind if that healthier at all not sure

  • I appreciate that you actually put the information in the description. Some of us like to read instead of listening to it. I’ve subscribed to your channel.

  • I have found black bean pasta is delicious, but it is difficult to find. Plus it looks like small licorice whips.�� However, I have gotten beyond worrying about that; it tastes just FINE! I have found them before at Costco, but recently it has been disappearing from there. Maybe if enough people request them, they will come back.

  • We have done the same thing with our squash and used it to make bread during the winter. A great way to store your excess crop!
    Thanks for sharing!

  • Let’s start the week off right, with some PASTA… alternatives that are LOW CARB!! Thanks for watching the video and supporting the CHANNEL!! Don’t forget to LIKE ����the video!! If you have any questions and/or ideas for future videos, drop them in the COMMENTS below!! ����

  • You missed cabbage! I cut it in thin lengths. Olive oil salt, pepper, garlic powder. Cook in a frying pan just slightly wilted. Cover with pasta sauce great substitute.

  • Your always positive and informative and more importantly helping so many people ❤ can’t express how grateful I am for all your videos. Hope you had a lovely Easter with your beautiful family x love your work Thomas, your amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

  • Health Commissioner Barbot’s PSA making a broad statement for everyone to just stay home only works for the already sick. If everyone follows it’ll further collapse the economy, increase unemployment and food shotages and suicides.

  • I watch your videos faithfully and have learned so much from you! You are very smart and you break things down. You are doing God’s work. Keep it up! ❤����

  • You can get a manual spiralizer for $23 so not really expensive at all, and it is fun to make zoodles. Frankly pasta is mostly bland and tasteless to me. I always considered it a sauce delivery mechanism, not really the main star of the meal so I love spaghetti squash and my zoodle lasagna. My family loves it too. My blood sugar is so much better now.

  • Thomas, This is a great video! I was just thing about this topic. Trying to find a video on the difference between Keto-Mojo test strips. However, I appreciate all your education. Just a newbie here and feeling scattered but it will register over time..LOL

  • Hey Thomas. Great videos as usual. I have a request. Can you please cover the topic of diet for those who are not as active? I understand that it’s “easy” for people to do burpees, etc in their homes during the apocalypse but generally, most people are not very active right now. Keto and/or mediterranean keto might be helpful? Or maybe something better? Less calories? Vegetarian? Thanks, and always great to see your videos. You are a daily inspiration.

  • I love zoodle primavera. I use the lowest carb pizza sauce I can find, ten times less sugar than regular jar sauce which I won’t use.

  • Been on keto and doing IF for about 8 weeks and seemed to have stalled out on weight loss. I’m 185 and dropped like 12 pounds but haven’t seemed to drop any weight in 2 weeks. You think maybe I’ve just hit a wall and will eventually breakthrough?

  • Actually, if you get whole winter squash, they aren’t that perishable. I grow my own and they’ll sit on the shelf, so long as the outer rind is intact, for months on end. I can’t speak to the nutrient profile by that time, but they have by no means gone rancid or bad.

  • I haven’t eaten pasta in years. I actually love zoodles and spaghetti squash. However, I will also use Healthy noodles from time to time. Have you heard of them? You can get them at Costco.

  • Have you tried the elbows from the great low carb bread co.? I found them on amazon I havent tried them yet but the ingredients are (in order on label) pea protein isolate, oat fiber, wheat fiber, egg whites, wheat gluten and semolina. I dont want to get kicked out of ketosis but I know I’m human and will maintain my lifestyle especially since I have lost almost 100lbs since last may following a lot of your advice. Thank you thomas for being an inspiration to me and helping me with your videos and saving my life. Have a great day

  • Excellent!!! Mexican version of pesto that is absolutely healthy and delicious and a little kick…avacado, cilantro, toasted peanuts, olive oil, green tomatillos (Mexican husk tomatoes), lemon, add a pinch of ground cumin and 1 serrano chile… blend everything add salt and fresh pepper and mix. ������ Shalom Alechem ��

  • I actually really like zoodles I started using them as a pasta replacement prior to keto when I wanted a ‘sauce delivery device’ without the starch. I don’t use a KitchenAid attachment…there’s the Inspiralizer and Paderno (?) spiralizers which work really great and are around $30-$40. It’s actually worth it if you eat them a lot bc the prepared noodles are around $8/package in my grocery store. My 2 y.o. Also really likes to watch the veggie turn into ribbons which is an added bonus.

  • Ermahgawd… This will probably be my new go to! I’m switching into plant based, and this was so easy and so delicious. I made my pesto/sauce with a few almonds and just one garlic, and put it on the pan with the noodles, and added a little bit of vegan cheese to melt. Thank you for the recipe!

  • Pasta is not bad if it isnt fully processed look at Italy for example. They have the oldest population in the world. What do they eat? Pasta and dough heavy meals. Look at Japan, second oldest population, statistically trim, what do they eat? Starch heavy foods, such as potato and rice. I’m not anti keto, but blaming carbs for your weight problems is silly. I’m down 60 pounds in 4 months after switching from a keto like diet, protein focused to a plant based carb diet. I’m not saying keto doesn’t work, it does, but it’s nowhere near as healthy. One thing I like but also dislike about keto is that it’s an easier option for people swapping from the westernized American diet, but at the same time people canabuse the fact you can eat bacon etc, and will obviously go overboard and stretch the limits (not everyone, but a lot I assume would). Anyways take care, I still watch your channel a lot and it initially inspired me to change for the better and to research nutrition more. You’re a really nice dude and I’m sure you help a lot of people with your videos

  • Your always positive and informative and more importantly helping so many people ❤ can’t express how grateful I am for all your videos. Hope you had a lovely Easter with your beautiful family x love your work Thomas, your amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

  • I guess if one don’t have such a gadget they could use a straw and suck the air out:P still got to figure out how to seal the bag without burning the lips:/ great video thanks for sharing

  • I’ll surely try this recipe…… love it��
    would love to see such quick easy recipes…..
    and lasagna recipe too……
    Thank you ��

  • I love Kelp noodles �� I mix them with stir fry vegetables so delicious. Love to watch your videos. You always bring great ideas and most importantly very healthy. You’re very inspirational ����

  • Thomas, congrats for sharing amazing knowledge and tips with us! What do you think of a “tricky chocolate” smoothie to break a long 20h fast? (pure cacao, brewer’s yeast, pure curcumin, fresh lemon/lime juice and water)��

  • Thank you for sharing the recipe. I made the Guilt-Free Parmesan Zicchini, and it was delicious. At first, the Zucchini kept absorbing the oil, so I kept adding more oil to my skillet because I didn’t understand where the extra juice in the skillet from your video was coming from I understood where once the tomatoes were in the skillet.:-) #newchef

    Anywho, I want to start the Keto Diet so I’ve been checking out your videos. Give it to me straight: Will I have to give up wheat pasta forever?

  • I never thought of preparing the onion, mushroom and garlic in my food processor before adding to the spaghetti sauce. I’m stupid. Good idea.

  • I’d love a video with a bunch of your favourite different carbs that you have when not following keto. Do you recommend sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, gluten free rice noodles? I cook in healthy oils and eat a ton of green veggies but I’m always searching for healthy carbs to make my diet more healthy and enjoyable too. I’d love to see some Thomas approved carbs in a day on non keto eating!

  • Hey Thomas. Great videos as usual. I have a request. Can you please cover the topic of diet for those who are not as active? I understand that it’s “easy” for people to do burpees, etc in their homes during the apocalypse but generally, most people are not very active right now. Keto and/or mediterranean keto might be helpful? Or maybe something better? Less calories? Vegetarian? Thanks, and always great to see your videos. You are a daily inspiration.

  • another weird but effective alternative are yellow (wax) beans. It loosely resembles ziti pasta noodles once the sauce and extras are added, and the texture is similar if cooked tender.

  • Hi Mona, I really appreciate the pasta video, would it be possible for you to show some sauces for all these vegan pasta and which goes well.. this would be awesome helpful! Thanks again!

  • I made this for the first time like two weeks ago for me and my mom and she loved it i just added a lil more red pepper flakes for the kick �� well im making it again today this is delish and so simple thanks so much

  • Thanks Dr. Mona for all the healthy pasta alternatives! Newly vegetarian since January of 2018 and I follow your videos weekly. Thanks for all your videos they are truly inspirational! My kids and I are loving the lentil pasta. We found it at Walmart and Publix for those of you on the east coast.

  • I made homemade cauliflower pasta sauce for the first time last week and it taste so good! I don’t feel guilty about it but I’ve been trying to find pasta noodle alternatives and this is it! I’m loving this video!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I’m getting inspired!

  • I came here to watch Thomas’s new video. YouTube showed me a commercial for Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, definitely not low carb. Thanks YouTube for trying to wreck my 6 pack, not going to happen. ��
    Hello from Phoenix Arizona!

  • Hi! I eat seaweed noodles instead of pasta. A tip: I don’t like the rubber taste but if you place the noodles in the pastasauce and then heat the noodles up (in the pasta sauce) then after a minute they become soft like regular noodles/spagetti.

  • Tracy needs a mandolin! I love zoodles. I do have a mandolin, as well as a spiralizer and they make fast work of this. I usually do a flash boil in some chicken stock to give the noodles some flavor. Then go the same as you. Good share.

  • For the full Guilt-Free Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Pasta Recipe with ingredient amounts and instructions, please visit our recipe page on Inspired Taste: https://www.inspiredtaste.net/29992/garlic-zucchini-pasta-recipe/

  • Yum zucchini noodles ��. I love seeing what others do with their food. I noticed today I finally have flowers coming on my bush beans. Can’t wait to be able to harvest ����.

  • Good to see someone try to keep the sound in check when running machines. Video and sound both work together to make a pleasant presentation, you are working to bring both in unison, and even someone as suburban as me can tell you’re an experienced gardener.

  • Shirataki noodles are disgusting. I followed fhe directions by washing them several times and heating them and it was still gross��

  • another weird but effective alternative are yellow (wax) beans. It loosely resembles ziti pasta noodles once the sauce and extras are added, and the texture is similar if cooked tender.

  • You missed cabbage! I cut it in thin lengths. Olive oil salt, pepper, garlic powder. Cook in a frying pan just slightly wilted. Cover with pasta sauce great substitute.

  • love that replacement options for pasta.. mona i love your videos.. always gret and you speak slowly and efficiently unlike most of bloggers whereni would stop the video right in the middle. i live in Montreal Canada so i hope to find these kind you mentionned… much love Azizam:)

  • Thomas I purchased a device called VeggettiPro for $20.00 and works awesome at making my Zoodles. It operates manually, but it’s quick and easy to use!! I bought it at Bed,Bath&Beyond!! I highly recommend it. Thought you would like to know!!

  • My favorite Italian TV chef says not to add Parmesan cheese to a dish while it is cooking.
    Best to wait until it is off the heat before putting on the cheese.
    Cooked Parmesan cheese tends to clump together.

    And you are right to use only freshly grated Parmesan. That pre grated stuff in the bright green shaker is an insult to any decent meal!

  • I just made them and they were sooooooo good!! I cooked up some mushrooms and also added some spinach to the pesto for some more greens. So healthy and so yum! Perfect:)

  • What does everyone here recommend for pasta sauce? Is Rao’s good? BTW, years ago I used to eat a lot of capers to get quercetin.

  • I’m not big on marinara on any pasta substitute but the palmini noodles have a recipe on their page for alfredo that is amazing on hearts of palm.

  • I really like your videos and would love for you to show the recipes when talking about them. I tend to go to the processed quick versions on vegan food which are not the healthiest. So I like how you’re showing quicker pasta alternatives too, would love for you to do a video on the kelp noodles because I’ve heard they are difficult to cook. Or a video on a vegan pesto!

  • ya’ll katefruitflowers shows how to prepare kelp noodles, don’t eat them raw. and there is a way to prepare shirataki noodles you can just search that on youtube, there’s a lot of videos on that. DON’T EAT IT OUT OF THE PACKAGE.

  • If you do that alot with the zucchini, you might want to invest in a zoodle maker or a mandolin. We use a mandolin & make vegetable lasagna without lasagna noodles. Really good.

  • My favorite:
    Kelp noodles.
    Edamame pasta is another one..
    High fiber, low carb.
    9 net carbs
    24g protein
    1120g potassium!
    With 12 grams of fiber
    Non GMO, Organic
    Seapoint Farms. The lowest carb brand.
    Your welcome ��

  • Shirataki noodles are disgusting. I followed fhe directions by washing them several times and heating them and it was still gross��

  • I like Spaghetti Squash with extra-virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, and some dried Italian herbs on it. Not a huge fan of it as “a marinara transport agent”-it’s OK, but I prefer Zoodles for that. Not all zoodle-makers are expensive. I got one that works like a cheap pencil sharpener-you just put the end of the zucchini (or carrot or whatever) into it and twist. The zoodles come out the side. No moving parts to break and under $20 on Amazon.

  • Italian food is my absolute favorite�� with this recipe I can have it all and eat it… Thank you so much Tippy it looks amazing����

  • During the lockdown i am doing this:

    Drink a Glass of WATER,
    Then have a BIG ASS SALAD
    Then eat what you LIKE.

    I’m happy, not cutting anything out and losing weight

  • Not liking any of that alternatives, I just eat pasta if I want it to once in a while and get over my craving. I craved pasta maybe three times a year or so.

  • I never thought of preparing the onion, mushroom and garlic in my food processor before adding to the spaghetti sauce. I’m stupid. Good idea.

  • Hi! I eat seaweed noodles instead of pasta. A tip: I don’t like the rubber taste but if you place the noodles in the pastasauce and then heat the noodles up (in the pasta sauce) then after a minute they become soft like regular noodles/spagetti.

  • This was the BEST zoodles recipipie I have followed!!! The instructions are so simple and the end result is nothing short but delicious ��

  • How about gluten free rice noodles? Not a keto option but might be good to have in the evening so the sugar crash is in line with bed time which is a good thing, right? What do you think Thomas?

You’re a really nice dude and I’m sure you help a lot of people with your videos

  • I was wondering when somebody was gonna post this method this season. This is MY favorite way to use zucchini. Share this with Daniel over at Arms Family Homestead. He keeps wasting his biguns on the chickens.

  • You can’t put on weight from pasta! It’s just wheat! What will cause weight gain is oily pasta sauces. Thomas is just here to push products you don’t need. Fat makes you fat. Check out Durianrider’s channel.

  • I love zoodle primavera. I use the lowest carb pizza sauce I can find, ten times less sugar than regular jar sauce which I won’t use.

  • I’m not big on marinara on any pasta substitute but the palmini noodles have a recipe on their page for alfredo that is amazing on hearts of palm.

  • Wow. I just purchased that very same spiralizer!! I’m going to LOVE this recipe, I just know. Thanks! Mine didn’t work well with a small butternut squash but carrot, cucumber, red onion, yellow squash, radish, and zucchini are all a breeze. Makes a raw salad look pretty.

  • Honestly, I’ve tried at least 20 different gluten free low carb “has no” type brand pastas and they are all revolting, so I just eat normal pasta but about 2 thirds the portion and way less often as we all know it does bloat the shit out of most people and is probably one of the heaviest meals you can eat.. pasta is a treat these days to you can’t even get it at the shops at the moment!

  • So the iodized salt is stripped of minerals. So tf what. After decades of being told “salt is bad for you” and uniodized sea salt is better” not all people are getting adequate iodine. The amount of minerals in sea salt is so minimal as to be insignificant and if you get those minerals from regular food, you’re not doing it right

  • Thomas, This is a great video! I was just thing about this topic. Trying to find a video on the difference between Keto-Mojo test strips. However, I appreciate all your education. Just a newbie here and feeling scattered but it will register over time..LOL

  • Been on keto and doing IF for about 8 weeks and seemed to have stalled out on weight loss. I’m 185 and dropped like 12 pounds but haven’t seemed to drop any weight in 2 weeks. You think maybe I’ve just hit a wall and will eventually breakthrough?

  • Dr. Vand, this is literally the first time I ever commented on a YouTube Health video. I think your presentation is top-notch, your information is easy to understand for the Layman. Thank you very much look forward to Future videos

  • How about gluten free rice noodles? Not a keto option but might be good to have in the evening so the sugar crash is in line with bed time which is a good thing, right? What do you think Thomas?

  • Not liking any of that alternatives, I just eat pasta if I want it to once in a while and get over my craving. I craved pasta maybe three times a year or so.

  • We have done the same thing with our squash and used it to make bread during the winter. A great way to store your excess crop!
    Thanks for sharing!

  • I actually really like zoodles I started using them as a pasta replacement prior to keto when I wanted a ‘sauce delivery device’ without the starch. I don’t use a KitchenAid attachment…there’s the Inspiralizer and Paderno (?) spiralizers which work really great and are around $30-$40. It’s actually worth it if you eat them a lot bc the prepared noodles are around $8/package in my grocery store. My 2 y.o. Also really likes to watch the veggie turn into ribbons which is an added bonus.

  • I just made this, I’m eating it right now. Didn’t have fresh basil so I used fresh baby spinach and dried basil. Didn’t have parmesan so I used asiago. It’s really delicious and it was fast to make even with spiralizing the zucchini. Oh! darn! I should have thrown in some cooked shrimp!  Great recipe thanks!

  • I haven’t eaten pasta in years. I actually love zoodles and spaghetti squash. However, I will also use Healthy noodles from time to time. Have you heard of them? You can get them at Costco.

  • You say that tofu is made «from that plant» and you wonder if that plant is from the sea. No! Tofu is made of cooked soy beans which are made into soy milk which is curdled,then strained and pressed. You should try making tofu, it is not difficult and it tastes so fantastic when it is homemade!

  • I have found black bean pasta is delicious, but it is difficult to find. Plus it looks like small licorice whips.�� However, I have gotten beyond worrying about that; it tastes just FINE! I have found them before at Costco, but recently it has been disappearing from there. Maybe if enough people request them, they will come back.

  • This definitely helps me for the first time I plan on making zoodles. I already have the spiralizer and a wok to cook them in, but have not used yet. Thank you!

  • I watch your videos faithfully and have learned so much from you! You are very smart and you break things down. You are doing God’s work. Keep it up! ❤����

  • I came here to watch Thomas’s new video. YouTube showed me a commercial for Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, definitely not low carb. Thanks YouTube for trying to wreck my 6 pack, not going to happen. ��
    Hello from Phoenix Arizona!

  • Tracy needs a mandolin! I love zoodles. I do have a mandolin, as well as a spiralizer and they make fast work of this. I usually do a flash boil in some chicken stock to give the noodles some flavor. Then go the same as you. Good share.

  • Boy! I love my Zoodles! I wish Spaghetti Squash was available here. Weird that it is not here in Rural Mexico. Hearts of Palm bother me a bit, as I worry about its overall sustainability and ethical harvesting. Last two, only online, from the US with a 50% mark up, so Fine! Sticking to Zoodles. First regular dish I ever switched to Keto was a very basic Spaghetti Dish that we love with lots of garlic, mushrooms, parsley, olive oil and Spanish or Portuguese style Chorizo. Yummy, but oh so fattening if served over the usual box of pasta. Zoodles cleaned that up in a flash!! Thanks Thomas. Great Info as usual.

  • My favorite:
    Kelp noodles.
    Edamame pasta is another one..
    High fiber, low carb.
    9 net carbs
    24g protein
    1120g potassium!
    With 12 grams of fiber
    Non GMO, Organic
    Seapoint Farms. The lowest carb brand.
    Your welcome ��

  • I like the spaghetti squash & it will stay a long time if stored in a cool dry place. I like the healthy noodles from Costco too. Thanks for the info!��

  • Informative and applicable as always Thomas. Your love for pasta spoke to my soul. If anyone’s looking for an AMAZING keto pasta recipe made with zucchini and pesto, check out the video on my channel. Rachel ray and Guy Fieri loved it. (Seriously)

  • I like it. Thanks for video. I am using this as an alternative so i can loose some weight. So i dont add the cheese and alot of other stuff. I use alot of turmic chilli power and olive oil.

  • Zucchini pasta is ok but the rest are nasty. Those konjac noodles are not practical for a family. You’ll have to buy so much packs

  • Let’s start the week off right, with some PASTA… alternatives that are LOW CARB!! Thanks for watching the video and supporting the CHANNEL!! Don’t forget to LIKE ����the video!! If you have any questions and/or ideas for future videos, drop them in the COMMENTS below!! ����

  • Have you tried the elbows from the great low carb bread co.? I found them on amazon I havent tried them yet but the ingredients are (in order on label) pea protein isolate, oat fiber, wheat fiber, egg whites, wheat gluten and semolina. I dont want to get kicked out of ketosis but I know I’m human and will maintain my lifestyle especially since I have lost almost 100lbs since last may following a lot of your advice. Thank you thomas for being an inspiration to me and helping me with your videos and saving my life. Have a great day

  • Thank you sooo much for this amazing recipe! I replaced the regular cheese with vegan one and got a stunning vegan meal. And it’s super delicious!

  • I’d love a video with a bunch of your favourite different carbs that you have when not following keto. Do you recommend sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, gluten free rice noodles? I cook in healthy oils and eat a ton of green veggies but I’m always searching for healthy carbs to make my diet more healthy and enjoyable too. I’d love to see some Thomas approved carbs in a day on non keto eating!

  • cabbage (I use red). just slice them into thin discs, then pull the discs apart into their natural strands to give you “noodles”. I steam them until soft. any type of pasta sauce and topping will work, as the cabbage easily absorbs the other flavors.

  • During the lockdown i am doing this:

    Drink a Glass of WATER,
    Then have a BIG ASS SALAD
    Then eat what you LIKE.

    I’m happy, not cutting anything out and losing weight

  • I appreciate that you actually put the information in the description. Some of us like to read instead of listening to it. I’ve subscribed to your channel.

  • That spegetti squash looked doped when you simply baked and literally shredded yourself pasta. Whole from earth, no preservatives, good vitamin, minerals and carbs. I cant wait to try it. I really like the crunch an taste of wasabi peas do you know of any more healthy alternatives to eating those, also Im addicted to chips what are healthy versions aside from kale chips?

  • Hello, big fan of the channel. Doing low carb, and IF. I just came across this article. Any thoughts? https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a26907351/low-carb-diet-atrial-fibrillation/?utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=socialflowFBRW&utm_medium=social-media

  • I love Natural heaven’s angel hair �� ��and Miracle noodles I’ve been buying miracle noodles for over a year I’m a type one diabetic on Keto

  • I have never eaten hearts of palm so I was getting really excited about this… But a quick Google search showed that 100 grams hearts of palm have a whopping 26 grams of carbs, and less than 2 grams of fibre ��… that’s not keto enough for me!! Another quick Google search yielded that the foods with the highest copper content are liver and oysters! Well, I happened to have liver this morning it’s one of the most nutrient-dense foods, so I have it at least twice a week… you can keep the hearts of palm!!

  • Health Commissioner Barbot’s PSA making a broad statement for everyone to just stay home only works for the already sick. If everyone follows it’ll further collapse the economy, increase unemployment and food shotages and suicides.

  • This is a beautiful dish! I love basil, but straight basil pesto tends to be a bit strong tasting for me. I would LOVE to try this recipe! I love your voice and your vlog style is fresh. I’m just starting out, but I’d love feedback if you ever get a chance to drop by my channel as well! Thanks so much and happy cooking:D https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCn5MaT1C8UbzXRQdfuO-RNg

  • As someone with thyroid issues I try to avoid tofu and too many nuts and beans because they are goitrogenic. Love the spaghetti squash and zoodle options!

  • Thank you so much for this valuable overview. You keep bringing up the latest and newest trends, which is super cool. I called my Asian store this morning, and they sell palm hearts in glasses (not in tins I am thrilled!!!) for a reasonable price.
    Shirtake/konjac noodles I have eaten frequently. Now that I have learnt that eating them reduces the hunger hormone level, I am definitely going to eat them more regularly. The important thing is to drink a lot of water when eating konjac.

  • I JUST got rid of my spiralizer because I had trouble using it and couldn’t figure out what is really ever use it for. I think I had that same one!!!!!

  • This definitely helps me for the first time I plan on making zoodles. I already have the spiralizer and a wok to cook them in, but have not used yet. Thank you!

  • Yum zucchini noodles ��. I love seeing what others do with their food. I noticed today I finally have flowers coming on my bush beans. Can’t wait to be able to harvest ����.

  • Who has the authority to say that pasta is not healthy? Italians are always rated n. 1 for health and longevity in the world. 40% of their diet is wheat food like pasta and bread……. obviously their wheat is different than American wheat. You will never figure out what is different!

  • Delicious! More fast meals for weeknights would be amazing. I meal prep, but then that takes up time in the weekend so sometimes not achievable.
