Creamy Spicy Avocado Sauce (for Zoodles of course)


  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 Tbsp EVOO
  • 1/2 Lime, squeezed for juice
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 Fresh Jalapeno
  • 2 Green Oinions
  • 2 Tbsp water (or pasta water)
  • A pinch fresh cilantro

Spiralize zoodles, and set them to the side; or cook your pasta according to package instructions, reserve 2 tbsp pasta water.

In a blender, add avocado, garlic, EVOO, lime juice, salt, pepper, jalapeno (remove seeds), green onion & 1-2 tbsp. water. Blend until smooth. Add more water if you like thinner sauce. Toss zoodles/pasta in sauce until covered, toss in cilantro, and simmer on medium high heat until warmed all the way through.

This goes great with shrimp or Cajun salmon (as pictured)!

Spiralized Zucchini Noodles …with everything!


I purchased a $10 spiralizer online with many doubts…. would it

work? Will I like zucchini “noodles”? Will I really be fooled into thinking I am eating pasta? Well, the results are in, and I am now OBSESSED with my spiralizer and ZOODLES!!!


I typically spiralize 3-4 small/medium zucchini. I initially went and

bought the biggest fattest zucchini I could find, thinking they would make more zoodles quicker, but I figured out fast that I’d then have to trim down the girth of the zucchini to fit in this tiny spiralizer. Don’t make that mistake like me. Anyways, wash your zucchini and spiralize away! Within minutes you will have a healthy bowl of zoodles to toss in pesto, alfredo, marinara, etc!zoodle


Toss the zoodles in a frying pan with pesto on medium/high heat for a few minutes. Once zoodles are coated in pesto and heated up you’re ready to eat! (Literally, just minutes!) We like to add ground turkey & parmesan on top, or my favorite combo, a side of steak! Yum!!! (The pesto recipe is posted in a previous post!)

Also makes for great cold salads with some spiralized carrot and anything else your little heart desires!

Honey Sriracha Crock Pot Shredded Chicken

FullSizeRenderI am absolutely in love, possibly slightly obsessed, with this easy 5 ingredient Honey Sriracha Shredded Chicken. The crock pot does all the work, and you get to enjoy this spicy-sweet perfectly cooked shredded chicken breast. Let’s begin…


  • 4 chicken breasts (4oz each)
  • 1/3 cup tamari (or coconut aminos or soy sauce)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup sriracha
  • 3 minced garlic cloves

Place cleaned whole chicken breasts in your crock pot (slow cooker). Then spread minced garlic over top– don’t worry, as it cooks the flavor will mix with all the juices and spread around. Set crock-pot to high heat and cook for 2.5-3 hours, or until the chicken is fully cooked and easily shredded. Drain liquid from cooked chicken (save if you can make use of garlicy chicken stock). Then, shred chicken with 2 forks. Make sauce by mixing together soy sauce/coconut aminos/tamari, honey, and sriracha. Pour on top of shredded chicken and mix evenly. If you like super spicy, add more sriracha sauce. If you like “saucy” just make a larger batch, it’s easy since it’s equal parts 1:1:1.
Serve with brown rice & steamed broccoli, with mashed sweet potato & asparagus, or serve chilled on a bed of fresh spinach salad.
