Spring is almost here , despite the snow we just received here in CT. That means lighter healthier meals. Load up on veggies!
Zucchini noodles & chicken meatballs
This is one of my favorite go too meals. Its tasty & you can eat a lot of noodles without feeling guilty or bloated afterwards.
Just get a spiralizer & go to town on zucchini. I usually add a little bit of water or chicken broth plus the zucchini noodles in a pan and warm them up and let them get to my desired firmness.
Next the meatballs. I make them with chicken or turkey and use whatever veggies I have in the fridge. I almost always put spinach.
- ground chicken or turkey
- parmesan cheese
Mix together , form into balls, & put on a baking sheet and cook until done.
Once they are done I take jarred sauce, place in a pan and add the meatballs to the sauce. Heat until sauce is hot.
Add it to you zucchini noodles and eat it all up!
Chicken & veggie patties
Something similar just bigger & flatter.
- Ground chicken or turkey
- bell peppers ( used yellow this time)
Mix together, form patties, place on a baking sheet and cook in the oven until done.
I made broccoli and baked fries as sides. Delish!
I don’t eat bread to often so no bun but sometimes do use a romaine lettuce leaf.
