What the heck are Squdoodles? ?
It’s what I call my finished product when I let my Vegetti get busy on a squash. 
If you’re trying to eat healthy  and you love veggies, I highly suggest investing in a spiralizer. These come in all shapes and sizes and with that I’m sure all price ranges.
I own the  Veggetti and I love it. (The link is to their actual website but you can buy this product at Walmart super cheap!) The Veggetti is small so it’s very easy to store.  It’s sharp, it’s inexpensive and it does the job.  


So if you’ve ever followed any dieting program (or common sense) you know the importance & benefits of veggies. But if you’re anything like me, I HAVE to have my pasta!  Pasta= pounds.    Spiralizing your veggies (squash and zucchini are awesome) takes the place of pasta.   Doubtful?  Ya gotta try it!
Here’s a recipe I love to make the night before and take for lunch.  Soooo much flavor and it’s healthy:)

Fresh mushrooms chopped (as many or as few as you want)
1-2 yellow squash spiralized
About 1 tsp of minced garlic
Small pinch of red pepper flakes
Grated parm cheese.
Shrimp/ baked chicken

Drizzle Olive Oil in your skillet over med. heat. Once heated, add your “noodles”
Add salt, pepper and red pepper flakes and garlic.
Add mushrooms and your protein. (if adding chicken breast, pre-bake)

Saute till your house smells awesome and your mushrooms are browning.
Sprinkle more parm cheese.
