Paleo Garlic Alfredo Zoodles

As much as I love these spiralized vegetables, I am still a big fan of carbs. I can’t help myself. I believe that by eating a healthy amount of carbs, I become a happier person. Therefore, I do a 50/50 mix of zoodles and noodles. If that’s not your thing, that’s ok. Adjust as needed! And if you ever have any questions about substitutions, please ask!
