Does anyone else get into a rut when trying to figure out quick and healthy Summer meals? Things that are perfect for taking with you to a summer concert or outdoor picnic? We usually gravitate towards sandwiches, but today I am sharing the perfect alternative! Noodles & Company now has noodles for all, whether you are gluten friendly, low carb, vegan, or just plain picky Noodles & Company has a dish for you! I try my best to follow a low carb diet, so I was super excited to hear that Noodles & Company now offers zucchini noodles! They are honestly such a pain to make, so this convenient and quick option is my new go to.
Quick and Healthy Summer Meals from Noodles & Company
The family (including my mom!) visited our local Noodles & Company the other evening for dinner. We all cleaned our plates! I ordered the Zucchini Pesto with Grilled Chicken, Ryan ordered Pad Thai with chicken, and my mom ordered the Spicy Peanut Sauté. The girls each ordered a kids meal (mac & cheese and buttered noodles) which came with applesauce and a kids crispy Each dish was super flavorful! My zucchini noodles were a lot thicker than the ones I make at home, which I loved. They also weren't watered down, again like the ones I make at home! Clearly, I will just be ordering them from Noodles & Company from now on!
I cannot tell you enough how yummy this dish was!
Noodles for All
Noodles & Company also has a new Dietary Calculator powered by MyMenu. It helps make things super simple when trying to find menu items that align with your health goals. You can even search for menu items by nutrition preferences. I really love having this option when trying to live a lower carb lifestyle. It's really nice to be able to eat a pasta dish without the extra carbs. My entire bowl of Zucchini Pesto with Grilled Chicken only had 480 calories and 18 carbs. I really want to go back and try the Zucchini Truffle Mac. I'm a huge truffle fan!

Kid Friendly Options
Noodles & Company had a ton of great options on their kids menu. In addition to their pasta choice, they also get to choose two sides. If you have little one's, you know they like to have choices! They offer broccoli, applesauce or a kids crispy as well as a drink!
Noodles and Company is offering a few new dishes to their already amazing line-up. Zucchini & Asparagus with Lemon Sauce, Zucchetti Garlic & Wine Sauce with Balsamic Chicken, and Whole Wheat Fresca. They also have a brand new Gluten-Friendly noodle. This is available in the new Gluten-Friendly Pipette Rosa with Grilled Chicken.
see, I told you we all cleaned our plates!
I love the ability to order online and pick up in store at Noodles & Company. This is perfect when we're in a hurry! I am totally going to be stopping by here for our dinner before Summer concerts in the park. Noodles and Company really does have a noodle for all! Have you been into a Noodles and Company recently? I'd love to hear what you think or what your favorite dish is! If not, what are you going to try the next time you stop in? Thanks so much for reading!
