Oh the lengths we go to to make sure that we are staying primal and still fulfilling our love of food. When we first began the primal lifestyle the cost of food was scary and at times felt boring. The food made us feel trapped and tied down, but if there is one thing we learned fast it was the more creative you are the more money you can save while still eating healthy.
The love of noodles and breads that were a fundamental part of our childhoods make us think of comfortable and fun times in life. They are greatly missed so one of the most important things for us was to find ways to continue eating some of our favorites… though they are still a little different, they are some of our children’s favorite, and ours too.
Zucchini noodles are super easy to make and when you top them with delicious spaghetti or alfredo sauce, they are certainly delicious!
1 medium zucchini serves three of my kiddos. All you have to do is julienne the outsides of the zucchini, not the seeded part (it doesn’t cook to the same consistency so I throw it in some smoothies 🙂 ). Boil some water and toss in the zucchini noodles for about 5 to 10 seconds (blanch). They should be al dente.
1. 1 jar of italian juice
2. About 1/4 cup of dried squash (you could add almond meal instead)
3. 2 tablespoons of flax seeds (can omit)
4. 1/2 pound of burger (browned)
5. 2 cans of tomato paste
All you do warm the sauce, place the zucchini on plates, and top with the sauce. We also like to top with asiago or parmesan cheese.
