The other day I made this recipe and posted it on my Instagram story @Lbreggy and I got tons of texts and messages asking me how to make … So here it is ! First of all let me start off by saying I am not a gourmet chef nor am I Martha Stewart . I like to cook really healthy, clean meals that are fast and easy to make. Lately whole foods market has been carrying pre- packaged zucinni and squash noodles and I am totally obsessed with them. They are about 16-18 calories a cup ( can’t read the back .. Need glasses … Aging is so fun ?) Zucinni is full of Vitamans such a C, A , B’s, folate and minerals like Calicum , magnesium , zinc and potassium. It’s also rich in omega fatty acids. The healing bennifits include – Strenghtens teeth and bones, lowers cholesterol, good for the heart, aids in weight loss, hydrates the body and helps with eye health and to improve vision (oh yay ! Maybe this will help me with mine !!! ).
There are so many cool recipes to do with these noodles . Today for lunch I sauted some garlic in olive oil, threw in the zucinni noodles and cooked for 3 minutes or so, added a pinch of Himalayan sea salt and topped with Parmesan cheese and it was fantastic. Here is the recipe I made the other day that was out of this world insanely delicious.
