I am back on reset before starting phase 2. I bought myself a little treat after meeting my first mini goal and it has been a life saver on this round of reset. I have used it for lunch and dinner the last two days, I love it that much. Yesterday, I used it to make some spaghetti with meat sauce. Yep, on reset where most carbs are a no no. How you ask? Well let me introduce you to the Saladacco. It is a little slicer that takes your harder vegetables and slices them into thin spaghetti like noodles. Gosh, let me just show you the zucchini noodles I made for dinner last night
Aren't those cute? They are so easy and fun to make. To eat them, I left them raw and topped them with a little of the marinara sauce I posted here. In a nut shell, it is a can of stewed tomatoes, onions, Italian seasoning and garlic. I didn't make the meatballs because I was in a hurry, instead I simply browned some ground turkey and added the marinara sauce to cook for a bit.
Throw your sauce on top of your "noodles" and you are ready to eat, a quick 15 minute dinner for a busy night. I also put a little nutritional yeast on top of the sauce because it has a slightly cheesy taste, kind of like Parmesan. You could saute your "noodles" a bit to soften but I found that the heat from the sauce softened the noodles enough.
I hope you don't feel like I am being a product pusher, I just have really been enjoying the Saladacco and I wanted to share it with you all. I can see it being something I use often and I am excited to try and make some Yakisoba noodles for dinner tomorrow. You could make the noodles using a grater or a knife if you had the patience.
