Asian Meatballs with Zoodles {Clean Eating Recipe}

Let’s talk about my current obsession with Zoodles!! (Zucchini Noodles for all the newbies!) OMG OBSESSED is an understatement!
Perfect for LOW carb dinners, (21 day fix approved & Jamie Eason Live fit Approved!)

First thing you NEED to do is go out and get yourself a pretty little Veggetti!
Only $15 bucks y’all!! You can buy them at CVS, Target, Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Amazon,
you name it!! LOTS of stores carry them now.

This is hands down my favorite kitchen tool, not that I have many! HAHA But you get what I’m saying.
You can also buy the Veggetti PRO which comes with more slicing options for $25.
I just might have to make an upgrade soon 😉

SO once you have your handy dandy kitchen tool, just slice the ends off your zucchini (once its washed)
then use your Veggetti to make your Zoodles. SUPER EASY!! Now you can cook them however you prefer, I like sautéing mine with some coconut oil on medium heat for about 8 minutes! You don’t want them to be mushy BUT you don’t want them to still be hard. Find the right cooking time that works for you!

Sometimes I take pretty pictures and sometimes I take “real life” pictures, it’s all about balance y’all! HAHA
This is my favorite Zoodle recipe to date! I usually make them once a week for my meal prep (doing the 21 day fix).
But thats usually just with some onions and tomatoes and marinara sauce (Low Carb Spaghetti anyone).

But I really liked mixing it up this week and experimenting with a new recipe. This is super delicious!
Who said that eating healthy has to be boring?! I for one, can not do boring food! HA I HAVE to eat food that I enjoy
and for the sake of my husband, he doesn’t like boring food either! It’s a win / win!

I mean get outta here with this deliciousness!!
I probably should have come up with a better, fancier name for this recipe, but I mean,
it is what it is. Asian meatballs & Zoodles, hopefully my photography skills & recipe
make up for the rather simple name 😉

Asian Meatballs with Zoodles
Ingredients:
-3 whole zucchini
-Lime Juice (2 limes)
-1 TB of coconut oil (melted)
-1 TB of water
-3 TB of low sodium soy OR teriyaki sauce
-2 TB of Hoisin Sauce
sprinkle of peanuts
-Meatball Ingredients:
-1 lb of extra lean ground turkey
(OR meat of your choice)
-1 egg
-1 garlic clove minced
-1/2 a teaspoon of salt
-1 onion diced
-1 TB of low sodium dipping sauce

Steps:

1. Combine your meatball ingredients. Form into 1 inch balls, place on baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes. 2.While the meatballs are cooking, combine the sauce ingredients in a pan on LOW heat (lime juice, coconut oil, water, soy sauce, hoisin sauce). 3.In another pan, on medium heat, add 1 TB of coconut oil, then sautee your ZOODLES for 8 minutes (until tender). 4. Once your meatballs are cooked through, place them in your “sauce” pan. Let them be thoroughly coated and simmer for 10 minutes (This will get the flavors mixed). 5.Then just plate your zoodles, top with your meatballs, some more hoisin sauce (my favorite ingredient of the recipe!) and a sprinkle of peanuts!

That’s it!
21 day fixers, one serving is: 1 green, 1 red, half a blue, and 2 orange.

    Alesha, I know your a fan of Shakeology. How do you handle the expense? The price holds me back. Is there really nothing comparable at a more cost-effective price? I have to spend wisely.
