New Year's Resolution Food... Zoodles!

One of my goals for 2015 (I feel like goals are better than resolutions for some reason?) is to eat more veggies!  Super original, huh?

My first step towards eating more veggies was obviously to follow Skinny Taste on Instagram and spend like 5 hours going through all of her photos... a pretty solid first step, if you ask me!  Anyway, she posted about this delicious zucchini noodle recipe with avocado and edamame, and it was totally my jam!

I bought this veggie spiral slicer from Crate and Barrel a few months ago and I am quite pleased with how well it worked... Not to mention it was pretty inexpensive! I will definitely be making more recipes using it very soon!


Begin by cutting the ends off of two zucchini, and create your zucchini noodles (or, zoodles).


Add chives, edamame, and an avocado.


For the dressing, mix 1 tbs of olive oil, 1/2 lemon, salt and pepper (I also used a little bit of garlic).


Toss the dressing over your salad and serve cold!



Please share all of your spiralized recipes with me!! I'm hooked!
