I gained 15 pounds back.
There, I said it.
I'm a size 10, and I'm not liking it.
That sounds thin enough until you have to wriggle into your
jeans and you look like a sausage in a casing.
A very messy sausage...
So we need to cut a few things out, like chicken wings and other obvious culprits
that tack on fat.
One of my biggest downfalls?
I adore the stuff.Ready for a blatant imposter that will satisfy your cravings
plus amp up your fiber and nutrition?
My BFF, Michael Reilly, came up with this one,
and I freaking love him for it.
Take four large zucchinis and dig out your peeler.
Wash the veggies and starting at one end, peel off a long, continuous
ribbon with the dark skin and some of the inner flesh.
Not your flesh, the zucchini's.
Add a little olive oil to a hot saute pan, then add the ribbons,
sprinkle with salt, and gently cook until tender,
turning them often.
This will take you around 5 minutes.
Dice up the remaining inner flesh of the zucchini and either
add it to your sauce or toss it in a salad.
Smother in your favorite sauce and munch.
Low fat and calories? BIG CHECK!
I'm too much of a raging foodie to suffer needlessly,
so trust me, this stuff is satisfying.
And if your New Year's resolution is to eat healthier and pare down,
this recipe is a perfect start on your road to reaching your goal.
Bon appetit, Besties.
