For all you low carb folks - I tried the birds eye frozen zucchini spirals today. I’ve heard they are great substitutes for noodles. 2 things of note ... first, if you use the camera feature to log the food, the information is not correct. Second - in my opinion- French cut green beans are a much better noodle substitute. Plus you get more for your carb buck. That is all 😊

Thanks for the headsup I hate veggies except root which is to many carbs!

I've never tried french cut green beans as a noodle sub! Great suggestion. Thanks!

Thanks for the heads up! I do mine fresh. I have never seen them frozen. I have never tried the string beans, but love the zoodles.

What a great idea to sub french cut green beans for noodles. Way less carbs than the zuch noodles. Thank you.

Never tried frozen. What was the consistency like?

They were just like fresh zoodles.

I just bought some and they are in the freezer. I look forward to trying them. I like to cook them till they are soft like noodles but haven't gotten the fresh ones to get that way. I am thinking I need to cook them longer.
