Have you ever heard of Zoodles?? Some people I follow on Instagram were making them and I wanted in! 🙂 So last week I finally got a Zoodler! As you can guess it makes zucchini ‘noodles’. Pasta is SO high in carbs, and processed carbs at that. So this is a much healthier option and extremely tasty still!
Tonight I made a delicious chicken alfredo dish with zoodles. The alfredo sauce I made was also healthier than the norm. I used this recipe: (from werefarfromnormal.com)
2- Tbsp Olive Oil
3- tsp Minced Garlic
2- Tbsp Flour
1- Cup Chicken Broth
1/4 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 Cup Milk
3/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
Heat the oil and minced garlic, slowly add the flour stirring constantly. Turn the heat down and add the rest of the ingredients, stirring until it thickens.
We really enjoyed this! I even got Will’s approval on this one! 🙂
Another recipe I wanted to share was a Kale salad recipe that I had made by a someone while we were on our trip out west. Did you know Kale has protein? Pretty great!
1 bunch of kale- take out the thick stems (I totally made the mistake of not doing this on a different recipe…ugh!)
2 carrots- shredded
1 sweet onion-chopped
juice of one lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
sea salt- about 2 tsp.
Add in what you like! (cherry tomatoes, black olives) It is good just like this though. I let it sit over night to let it ‘cook’ so that it isn’t so hard. It also keeps for days, which is a great lunch option!
Hope you get a chance to try these out!
