I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier, and lose a little weight, shooting for 25 lbs. So far I’ve lost 15lbs *yay me* but now the weight loss has slowed… or maybe it was that burger and animal fries and milkshake that I had at In n Out 😀 *shhhhh*
My friend and I are trying to cut out carbs, flour and rice, which makes meals a little difficult, since I am a bread fiend *sigh*. But I pulled out my trusty spiralizer and I was determined to make something healthy and delicious. I came up with Roasted lemon, garlic and herb chicken and a mushroom and veggie noodle stir fry.
It’s so much easier to eat veggies when they’re so bright and colorful and it feels like you’re eating pasta 😀 *and who doesn’t love guilt free veggie ‘pasta’*
I have a new love and his name is Paderno… Paderno spiralizer and he makes my life complete! I don’t know whether I love watching the spirals of veggies flow quickly through his sharp blades or eating the quick and super easy meals he gives me. Either way, he makes yummy recipe options, especially if you’re trying to lose your Christmas weight *thanks a lot sugar cookies and eggnog*
The spiralizer is really easy to use, you select a blade according to how thick or thin you want your veggie noodles, attach your vegetable and turn the handle and watch your beautiful noodles filling your plate!
For my dish, I kept it really simple. I spiralized zucchinis, carrots and onions. Then I sliced some garlic cloves. Sir fry the garlic, with kosher salt and red pepper flakes in a little olive oil and then add your noodles and cook until the texture is to your liking! Easy peasy and oh so yummy!!
