Spicy Taco Zoodles (Cookbook Preview!)

spicy taco zoodles healthy recipes shed for the wed

I'm giving you a preview from the soon-to-be released Shed for the Wed Cookbook today! There is a whole section dedicated just to spiraled veggie noodles. I love them! You get almost all of the satisfaction of a hearty pasta dinner without the refined carbs weighing you down.  Do you want to know the secret behind why they are so great? It's the sauce! If you have a good sauce, you do not miss regular noodles. Don't believe me? Try it yourself!

They key here is finding the right marinara. You want to make sure its lower in sugar (the guideline I go off of is 4g or less of sugar per serving). My favorite is Trader Joe's Organic Tomato Basil.  You most definitely can make your own, but it will add on a couple hours to the endeavor. 

I hope you give this recipe a shot! It's a real winner. Scroll to the bottom for the recipe. :)

Also, if you haven't downloaded the FREE food & wellness journal yet, be sure to sign up for emails from me and download it here! I love this freebie because it is what I actually encourage my clients to use! Use it to get a clear impression of your normal habits, and then you can transition to keep you accountable to your lifestyle goals! -AHS
