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!

Turkey Burger Heaven

This is a MUST TRY recipe. I can’t say enough about how amazingly tasty this turkey burger is! Takes about 10 minutes to prep, 14 minutes to cook, and an incredibly fast rate to devour because it’s so delicious!


  • 1 package of ground extra lean turkey breast
  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


*Served with lettuce & tomato on a 100% Whole Wheat Flax & Fiber Sandwich Thin.


Preheat your oven to Broil on High, and make sure to put your oven rack all the way to the top so that the turk burgs will cook about 2 inches from the heat. Next prep your baking sheet with foil and a non-stick spray. The turk burg mixture was very moist, so I suggest using a baking sheet that has a lip so that you don’t have any juice run off in your oven while cooking.

Grate the two zucchini and place them in a large bowl. Add all dry seasoning (dried basil, onion powder, oregano, garlic powder, salt & pepper) and then turkey.              Mix well–I used my hands to mix, because the next thing you do is make your patties anyways. The recipe said it would yield four 4-5 oz portions, however I ended up with 5 patties. Place patties on your baking sheet, broil (on high) on the top rack for 7 minutes, then remove them from the oven and carefully flip each patty, cook for another 7 minutes on the other side.

Now it’s time to enjoy!! I dressed mine up with lettuce & tomato, and placed it on a lightly toasted 100 cal flax & fiber sandwich thin. It was delicious!

According to the recipe, if you were to yield four 5 oz burgers, they are 144 calories, 1g fat, 3.5g carbs, and 27.6 g protein. I didn’t weigh my patties, so my numbers may have been slightly off, but still low cal, high protein, and super tasty!
