Better Nutrition - - THE WISE FAT BURNER - By Lisa Turner

As the weather gets cooler, if you’re like most of us, you’re crav­ing com­fort foods. Like noo­dles: dense, starchy, carb- y piles of them, lav­ished with but­ter and smoth­ered in rich, creamy sauces. And if you’re like most of us, you’re try­ing to con­vince your­self, un­suc­cess­fully, that broc­coli fl orets will be equally sat­is­fy­ing.

Th e so­lu­tion: make your own noo­dles out of veg­eta­bles, and sud­denly, a whole world of healthy pos­si­bil­i­ties unfolds. Spi­ral­ized root veg­eta­bles off er the same starchy, twirly fun as noo­dles, but with a frac­tion of the calo­ries and a much lower glycemic in­dex. Plus, root veg­eta­bles are high in fi ber and an­tiox­i­dants, and they’re nat­u­rally gluten- free. And spi­ral­iz­ing is easy, fast, fun, and cheap: most spi­ral­iz­ers cost less than $ 40.

Th is fall, swap your starchy, carb- y noo­dles and dig into th­ese hearty, twirly treats.
