After hiding in a kitchen cabinet for some time, I remembered about my good ole spirilzer
I have this one from Amazon:
It does a pretty good job with turning veggies and fruits into fun shapes.
Zucchini noodles are the main reason why I bought it way back when in the first place. It’s still my favorite way to use it. But apple slices, sweet potatoes, and anything else you can think to stick on there work great, too. Mine has 3 insert that make different sizes/shapes.
A few nights ago, I spirilized my zucchini, roasted it in italian seasonings and garlic powder, and plated it with turkey meatballs, marinara, and a toasted cheese and avocado wrap:
Cilantro = my favorite fresh herb. (Must be why I love Chipotle so much)
After I remembered how much fun spirilizing is, I made it again the next night. Only this time, I wanted Chinese.
The Sauce Components:
- 1 tbsp La Choy Teriyaki Sauce
- 1 tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- crush garlic
Simply saute your veggies and mix in the sauce before serving.
Not the prettiest dish, but it’s the taste that counts. The peanut butter gives it that thai taste and makes it so creamy.
You can add in any protein or carb of choice as well. I rolled with chicken since I had some to use up.
^my last kabocha squash. *tear*
A spirilizer is just another handy tool to switch up your usual veggies. I don’t understand people who don’t like vegetables…it’s probably just because they’ve never had spirilized zucchini. That’s where it’s at.
Not to leave you without dessert, here is what I have been all about the last few nights:
Double Chocolate Fudge Bowl
- 1 scoop chocolate casein protein powder
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder (or regular)
- dash of stevia
- almond milk to thin—>add until desired thickness. I probably used around 1/3 cup
- pool of peanut butter
Mix up and stick in the freezer for a little bit to thicken up and get ooey gooey.
Yes, that’s right 1/4 cup cocoa powder goodness in one serving. It makes it amazing. Add peanut butter on top and you have yourself Reese’s in a bowl.
The only problem with this dessert (for me) is all the cocoa powder = caffeine. After finding out that I have a beef with caffeine, this isn’t the smartest idea for me to have before bed. Unfortunately it has made me toss and turn at night (DARN IT) so I will not be having this on an every night basis….but sometimes chocolate = necessary. So chocolate will be had.
Tomorrow I’m heading home for the wedding shenanigans. Hopefully everything goes smoothly!
Happy Tuesday to all!
