Being on this whole low carbs “diet” is great for a lot of reasons. Justin has lost more than 10 pounds and I’ve lost 4. You have to get creative with meals though. There is a lot of meat and vegetables over and over again. It can get a little bit repetitive, so we have been racking our brains trying to come up with new meal ideas. This one was a variation of zucchini noodles. The biggest reason I tried this instead of zucchini noodles was that I hate shredding the zucchini. I am always afraid of cutting my finger with the mandolin. I end up with a lot of wasted zucchini because I refuse to get my hands too close to the blade. And I have to say, this turned out delicious. Justin didn’t say a word while eating it, so I knew that meant it HAD to be pretty tasty.
The only vegetables I used today were squash and zucchini, but next time I think I will throw in some carrots, onions, or mushrooms along with it.
