Zoodles & Avocado Oil

Creating the zoodles & mini meatloafs

Hello Divas!  Creating this from Las Vegas! Here for fitness & some fun!  I will fill you in soon.  However, I wanted to follow up with a recipe I created a few days ago with the avocado oil.

I am still enjoying & discovering new ways to use avocado oil as a fat macro in my diet and want to share.  As you will see, most of my blogs are food related.  Which is a good thing, since most of us love to eat.  Its all about finding ways to enjoy the foods you love but making them “diva worthy”     I created a spaghetti dish with “zoodles” .  Along with mini turkey meatloaf wrapped in Trader Joe Turkey bacon and a side of saute spinach.  Dinner with high protein, good fat and low carb.

 

 

I will say….it does take a good 1-1.5 hours to prep and cook.  So make it for a funday sunday meal, enjoy a glass of vino and have fun creating.
Mini Turkey Meatloafs over Zoodles & Mushrooms

Step one:
4 zucchini,  chop ends & peeled skin is best.

It helps keep the zoodles long like spaghetti noodles.  Create noodles with your zoodle maker. (sur la tab, bed bath beyond)
Once you create your “noodles” place them on a cookie sheet lined with paper towels. YES, paper towels. They will not burn. Oven temp 200’ only. We need to get rid of the excess water to make crisp like noodles. Sprinkle noodles with sea salt and bake for 3o min to “sweat out” the zucchini.  After the 30 min, remove from oven and then take more paper towels and pat off the zoodles. Place them in a bowl to sit while creating the loafs.
During the 30 min when the zoodles are sweating, its a good time to make the turkey loafs
