DISCLAIMER: The posts for the next two days aren’t going to have the BEST photography – but starting Wednesday, it’ll be a whole new ballgame, so stay tuned!

Talk about a low calorie version of a high calorie favorite! Maybe it’s just me, but peanut noodles are absolutely wonderful. Peanut butter is savory and sweet at the same time and has such a yummy texture and goes well with anything – bread, fruit, chocolate and now, cucumber noodles! Although cucumbers don’t offer as much nutritionally as zucchinis, they are still great for you and the perfect consistency for replacing noodles. The peanut butter gives a creaminess to the sauce, but if you REALLY want to cut the cals, leave the peanut butter out – you’ll get a watery sauce, but it’s still super delicious! Best part…. no cooking involved!

After you spiralize your vegetable, make sure to pat it down lightly with paper towels to get rid of extra moisture, since cucumbers are about 95% water.

If you're concerned about high-calorie peanut sauces (I was) you can get great peanut flavor into sauces and spreads with almost no fat using Bell Plantation's PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter, a very defatted peanut powder (leftover from making peanut oil?) that tastes exactly like peanuts. It is an extremely fine, dry powder, and practically inedible on it's own, but I've been making great guilt-free peanut sauces, adding it to curries, combining with yogurt and sweetner to spread on toast, etc etc etc. You can find it on Amazon at (currently 10/2013 a great deal)
