My Favorite Healthy Recipes: Follow-up to Spend Mo Monayyy Podcast

POP!


Helloooooooooooooooooo

(Did you read that like Mrs. Doubtfire? Because you should have.)


Welcome back to the Bubbly Thoughts Blog!

This week is a follow-up to my podcast episode entitled "Spend Mo Monayyy" where I discussed items that I think are important to spend a little bit of extra money on.

*You can access this episode and all the other Bubbly Thoughts Podcast episodes on iTunes, Spotify and hear the latest episode here. *


Last week I followed-up with my skin care routine which was really fun to write about! I really care about my skin and I hope some of my suggestions encouraged you to do your own research about what is right for you.


This week, I heard from many of you requesting my favorite healthy foods I like to buy regularly so I am actually going to share some of my favorite healthy recipes with you!


Fizz...


The skinny on eating healthy:


You guys, it is nearly impossible to 100% know what the healthiest, most ideal foods to consume are. I read articles from reliable resources, watch YouTube videos from health experts, view documentaries from people who have done extensive research, and I have come to one conclusion...


I DON'T HAVE AN EFFING CLUE!


Does anyone else want to rip their hair out trying to figure out what is right and what is wrong? Is Keto the way to go? Or is high carb, low fat best? (is butter a carb?) Or is being vegan truly the best route to take? Should I be intermittent fasting? Or better yet, did you guys see the video going around of this guy who legit left all of his calories until the end of the day so he put them alllll on a pizza, yet still had a six pack? Here's the video. (guys...don't do this. I really don't think this is healthy lol).


So! I am not an expert, but here is what I have for you. Currently, I don't exactly have a label on how I eat (such as vegan or vegetarian or keto, etc.). But I wanted to share some recipes with you that not only make you feel good, but taste good too!


Here are my fav healthy recipes:

Zucchini Noodles with Meat Sauce


(PS this is not my picture, however mine turns out looking like this)

Ingredients:

- Green Giant Veggie Spirals Zucchini, 12 oz

- GreenWise 92% Lean Ground Beef, 1 lb

- Incredible Fresh Diced Yellow Onion, 2- 3 TBS

- Hunt's 100% Natural No Salt Added Tomato Sauce, 16 oz

- Hunt's 100% Natural Tomato Paste, 2 TBS

- Gourmet Garden Basil, 2TBS

- Salt and Pepper, a dash of each


Instructions:

1) Bring large pan to a medium heat on the stove (I don't usually use oil when I did this, but you can! Something like 100% Pure olive oil would be good! Heats meat up better than virgin or extra virgin olive oil).

2) While that is heating up, put both the tomato sauce and paste in small pot, leave it covered and bring it to a low to medium heat (more on the low side).

3) You can test the heat of the pan (for the ground beef) by hovering your hand over the pan (don't be a dumb ass and touch it lol, you can feel the heat in the air pretty far above it). If warmed up (it will only take like 3 minutes or so depending on the power of your stove), add ground beef.

4) Follow heating instructions for frozen zucchini spirals.

5) By now the small pot of tomato sauce and paste is probably bubbling. Add basil, salt and pepper and stir. If bubbly, bring to a lower heat to simply keep it warm, but you don't want to burn it.

6) Make sure the ground beef is almost fully brown and add the onions.

7) Once beef is fully brown and onions have been mixed in, bring the pan to a low heat, turn off the heat where the pot where the sauce is and pour the sauce into the pan with the ground beef and onions. Stir.

8) Cover the pan with a top until zucchini noodles are done

9) Split the zucchini noodles between two bowls. Add the sauce on top.

10) Serve.
