Tasty Thursday – Greek Zoodles

I love zoodles! This recipe gets about 4 servings – we got two dinners and two lunches out of it. It seems like a lot of zoodles, but they do cook down! I use my Vegetti for this, but a spiralizer will work!

It tastes even better the next day!

Greek Zoodles

  • 5 small Zucchini
  • Olive Oil
  • Shallot or onion
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 4-5 Garlic cloves
  • Cubed chicken, cooked (seasoned to your preference)
  • Sun dried tomatoes
  • Kalamata olives, halved
  • dried Oregano
  • Feta cheese crumbles
  • Lemon juice, to taste

Heat the olive oil, add shallots and sauté until tender. Add the garlic to the pan and sauté until very fragrant.

Add zucchini noodles, turn the heat up to Medium and season zoodles with salt, pepper and Oregano. Sauté the zoodles until they just begin to soften, then add olives and sun dried tomatoes, and continue sauteing until zoodles are al dente.

Add feta cheese and desired amount of lemon juice, add the chicken and then toss to combine.

Enjoy! So good!

Snacktime Sunday – Beachbars!

BRAAAAND NEW! Beachbars are here! I’m excited because I eat a lot of bars, but finding ones that taste good, aren’t loaded with sugars and preservatives AND is Diabetic-friendly can sometimes feel like a TALL order!

These wholesome snack bars combine real chocolate chips, crunchy protein crisps, fruit and nut pieces, and creamy nut butters in just 150 calories while packing in 10 grams of protein.

Whats in them?

Real Chocolate Chips. Derived from cocoa beans, which contain phytonutrients known as flavonoids. Rich and delicious, the way chocolate chips should be.

Peanut and Almond Nut Butters. A source of protein and fiber that adds a creamy texture. (because no one likes a dry, crumbly bar!)

Whey and Pea Protein Crisps. Whey protein delivers all nine of the essential amino acids. Pea protein is a plant-based protein source that also supplies key amino acids. And they’re satisfyingly crunchy.

Diced Peanuts and Almonds. A source of monounsaturated fats (the good kind). They also provide protein and fiber, and add a rich, nutty flavor.

Dried Cherries. A flavorful source of beneficial dietary fiber and phytonutrients. Plus, they taste great.

Pomegranate Juice. A source of phytonutrients, and revered for centuries as a powerful fruit. It provides tart, fruity sweetness.

And perhaps most IMPORTANTLY, what’s NOT in them? BEACHBAR is gluten-free, has 0g trans fats, and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
