Pasta has always been a favorite of mine, but not ideal when you want to cut down on calories!

Zucchini noodles are a perfect substitute. You can purchase a spiralizer for cheap at target, Walmart, or Amazon ! All you have to do is buy 1 or 2 zucchini’s, turn & press them through the spiralizer, pat them with paper towels or a cheese cloth, and sautée them for a few minutes. Two of my favorite ways to eat them are with a meat sauce or pesto.
For meat sauce:
I use a few cans of sauce and I add Italian seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic powder, basil, and oregano). Then I add a large handful of fresh baby spinach, and a half pound to a pound of ground turkey. That way you still get to add some protein!
Homemade pesto is best, but if I’m in a jam I use a jar of pesto. I add olive oil for some healthy fats, and add grilled chicken for protein!
Both are perfectly well balanced meals, that are super easy to make! Neither require a long list of ingredients, and most importantly are delicious!
