Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. Plan for roughly one medium-sized zucchini per person.
  2. Split the zucchini in half lengthwise.
  3. Scoop the seeds with a spoon and slice the halves very thinly with a potato peeler or use a spiralizer to make zoodles.
  4. Toss the zucchini noodles in a simmering sauce of your choice and serve immediately.
  5. If you aren't serving your zucchini with a sauce, then boil half a gallon (a couple of liters) of salted water in a large pot and parboil the zucchini slices for a minute.
  6. Drain the water and add olive oil or butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir and serve.

Tip!

Try serving with fresh diced tomato, shaved parmesan and basil on top. Absolutely divine!

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    I just found this site and have been a struggling diabeteic for years. My biggest problem is what to take for lunch every day. I used to take 2 tuna or chicken sandwiches, thinking I was eating healthy but the bread kills me. I do not like to cook. I am glad I found this site I will try some of the easier recipes on here. Thanks

    Try the quick bread..best ever. Not a seed person so omitted them and substituted flax seed meal about 1/4 cup and added a Tbs or 2 of flax powder. Scooped out dough into a whoopee pan, makes about 8 or 9, and u have perfect little muffin like bread. Just heat in toaster for morning breakfast.

    I always salt my zoodles on a plate about 10 minutes before tossing with sauce. The salt extracts some of the water in them, giving them a better al dente bite. I squeeze the water out of them before adding to the sauce. SO good with a jarred alfredo sauce and a piece of chicken. :)
