Available in Zucchini, Sweet Potato, Butternut and Beet Spirals, our noodles are made from 100% fresh vegetables and are a healthy alternative to grain-based noodles. With as little as 12 calories per serving, our noodles are well worth every tiny calorie. You can eat 'em raw, sautéed as an alternative to pasta, sauced, sidelined, in a salad or as a soup. Our veggie spirals are compliant with every possible diet – unless for some weird reason your diet says no veggies at all! Less prep work. Less clean up. More veggies. More fun. Simple but twisted.
