Spiralized Yam and Zucchini Noodles

I dug out my spiralizer this week – totally forgot I had one! It was stashed away in a cupboard somewhere, so I decided that it needed to be put to use.  Somehow, cutting up vegetables in fancy ways makes them taste better. Don’t ask me how, but it’s true.

Using veggies as noodles is a great way to cut down the grains in your diet. Eating more veggies and less grains can help reduce inflammation and provide more alkaline balance for our body. Our body’s acid-alkaline balance is crucial  for good health, helping with allergies, inflammation, and keeping our tissues healthy. Whip up a batch of these veggie noodles and you’ll be eating another veggie serving during your meal.IMG_0124

There are definitely a few different ways to make these noodles, but using a spiralizer makes prep time take less than 5 minutes! I used some zucchini and yam to make my noodles this time, but I’m excited to try out other vegetables, too. The yam was surprisingly easy to spiralize.IMG_0121

I cooked some sausage (grass-fed, grain and dairy-free) to go along with these noodles,
and then sprinkled some toasted sesame seeds on top, as well! These noodles can be used as a side or along with just about anything.
