Pasta? Girl, bye.

Let's chat about food and stuff today, sound good?

A few Facebook groups I'm in revolve around macro eating and people are forever looking for ways to eat more food without more calories.  I've seen discussions about a veggie slicer a few times and decided to get one for myself and try it out. I do what I always do, got on Amazon and looked for good reviews, decided to go with this one - Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer


It was only 33 bucks, super easy to use, and easy to clean. I have used this thing every single day since I took it out of the box, I'm obsessed and want to spiral all the veggies and fruits! On the first day I had no clue how to cook them,  honestly I was pretty shocked that I actually got them to look like noodles. That's how easy it is to use :) Dummy proof. Or rather 'I hate to read directions and always wing it' proof. 

 

I spiraled up some Zucchini and potatoes and cooked them in garlic and olive oil, added some chicken I shredded from the crock pot the day before. Very good!


The next day I looked up a recipe on inspiralized.com Tuna Noodle Cassarole - note that I did NOT make my own breadcrumbs I just bought Panko ones from the store cause it seemed like a lot of extra work. Anyways, the noodles are made from Zucchini again just with a different blade to look like this and were amazingly good. 


This is for one serving, so low carb and so high protein. {yes the sodium is high in tuna, but I have normal to low blood pressure so I don't really care, but if it a concern to you then use chicken} I may never use regular pasta again because if you've ever measured out what one serving actually looks like it ain't shit- I'm still hungry after eating it. 



Last night I used the zoodles and made chicken alfredo, it's so low carb that I could of used a higher fat more delicious alfredo sauce which I'm noting for next time. 


 Today was a run day for me, I did 5 miles and then went and lifted some upper body for 30 minutes. On my run days I get a few more carbs to eat, so I'm planning on trying a spiraled sweet potato tossed with some coconut oil and then this super amazing looking apple treat!

So tell me do you have one? Any recipes I should try?

  3. Last night I made the SkinnyTaste Crockpot Turkey Meatballs over zoodles! So good and my hubby even said that he didn't miss the noodles. I also loved that since it was so low carb I was able to add more cheese on top!!

  4. My favorite Inspiralized.com recipe is the Lasagna! The only thing I do differently is add in ground turkey or lean ground beef to one of the layers. I also love to spiralize butternut squash and chop it up in my food processor to make 'rice'. It pairs well with a salsa chicken or teriyaki salmon.
