Non-Pasta Salad

As the weather gets nice out, no one wants to turn on the stove to make pasta salad. Takes time to boil that water, it heats up the house, and oh let's talk about carbs!! Trying to slim down the belly so excess carbs are a no, no for me.

So, try this "non-pasta salad" as an alternative. Yummy yummy with the zucchini noodles instead of pasta!!

This is going to be my lunch for next week ... it's the end of school vacation so I'll be back at prepping all of meals on Sunday to stay on track with my goals. Be on the lookout for pictures tomorrow!

Servings: 4 

Here's what you need:
  • 3 organic zucchini
  • 1/2 cup organic cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • dash of salt and pepper
  1. Trim the zucchini ends. Peel down the length of each zucchini until you reach the seeded center, creating long, noodle strands.
  2. Place the noodles in a medium bowl, add the quartered cherry tomatoes.
  3. In a small bowl combine the oil, garlic, lemon juice, dried basil, salt and pepper. Pour over the noodles and mix to combine.
  4. Chill for at least 20 minutes in the fridge.
  5. *Optional, garnish with drops of balsamic vinegar glaze before serving.

  • 3 whole wheat tortillas (I use a sprouted grain version)
  • 1 banana
  • 9 strawberries
  • 3 tsp of nut butter of choice
  • Cinnamon
Slice the banana and strawberries and set aside. Heat a griddle or frying pan on medium low heat. (Or use the grill during grilling weather!)
Spread each tortilla with a tsp of the nut butter. Place 1/4 of the banana slices and a 1/3 of the strawberry slices on each tortilla. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Place the prepared tortilla on the pan and cook until golden brown and the nut butter has gotten all gooey and melted.
Fold over the tortilla to make a quesadilla.
