Basil Chickpea Balls

Fall seems to have officially arrived in Colorado – the air is crisp in the morning and remains cooler throughout the days. I love it! I’ve already pulled out my pumpkin decorations and bought my Jack O’ Lantern at Costco. … Continue reading

Ski Bum Envy Bowl

It’s winter in Colorado – and that means skiing! If you can’t reach me, I’ll be in the mountains, enjoying the slopes, snow and blue bird days. Except this weekend, which found us back in the foothills at home, with … Continue reading

15 Minute No Carb Zoodle Bowl

Quick lunch

Quick lunch

Who am I kidding…..no carbs sound like a horrible idea! But, sometimes I do find that they make me a bit more sluggish and it’s good to switch it up with twice the veggies. Now, I do believe if you eat the right carbs, you should have no problems whatsoever & should never worry about counting calories. I’m also a firm believer of eating real food, so carbs or no carbs shouldn’t be a big deal!

I digress….let’s talk about my quick, easy, no carb lunch!

We are heading to the mountains this weekend, so I’m cleaning out my fridge. Not having a ton of time to make anything (busy day at work!) plus, not having a huge amount of food to actually work with…..I pulled out the following:

1 big red pepper

1 small orange pepper

1 whole zucchini

1 big carrot

3 gloves of garlic

An almost empty jar of peanut butter sauce

Coconut milk

Amino Acid

Sriracha

Red wine Vinegar

I shredded the zucchini and carrot with a cheese grater. Chopped the garlic & pepper, which I sauteed in about 1 tablespoon of coconut oil for about 5 minutes (I used a wok). I added the zucchini & carrot mix and sauted for another 5-7. Mixing 2 tablespoons of the amino acids, 1/2 cup of coconut milk, 1 tablespoon of vinegar and a few squirts of sriracha directly in the peanut butter jar…..I shook until mixed. Adding the sauce to the mixture I cooked for another minute or two, threw in a bowl and dove in!

Look at food differently…..and your meals will transform!

Happy Thursday!
