Pesto Chicken Zoodles #keto


chicken zoodles

I don’t know about you, but I am missing summer just a little bit right about now. We had some serious winds and rain last week, then the weekend was filled with a bit of sunshine. It was nice. I needed that since I spent the better part of my weekend sorting through boxes full of things which I had to sort on whether I was taking it or leaving it here. I found myself leaving a lot of things here. Part because I don’t need more stuff to move and part because I would rather kiddo and her dad enjoy the things. 

One of the things I found over the weekend was with the amount of stress and sadness I am feeling, I am forgetting to really sit down and take care of me. I know I need to watch my self-care otherwise my mental health issues take over. On the other hand, I am glad they are not out of control because I am not eating everything tied down.

Now that I have some of my health issues under control, I need to be considerate with myself and be mindful of what I do eat.

I picked up some zucchini on special last week so I decided it was time to bust out the spiralizer and get some zoodles going. I dug out the George Foreman grill, seasoned some chicken breasts and started grilling.

I’d like to be able to tell you that I made my own pesto this time, but I just used a little jar I had opened which I bought at Aldi.

I didn’t cook the zoodles. I just tossed in a little pesto and lightly mixed them up. When the chicken was done I cut it in strips.

It’s super filling and I didn’t get that carb hangover I feel when I eat too much pasta.

With everything going on in my life between my health and my personal life, I am pretty sure my body is thankful for these healthier options.

  4. zoodles always scared me… then I tried them! I fell in love! It’s definitely the way they are cooked and that depends if someone will like them or not. But once you get past the fact that they aren’t pasta it’s all good!

  5. I love zucchini pasta, I use a potato peelers so they are like strips but I really like the way the spiralizer makes them look. I throw in the frozen home style turkey meatballs (unfrozen of course) and that makes it simple. I love how veggie pasta is easier and yummier than we think – because I definitely wouldn’t sit down and just eat a zuchinni in it’s entirety 🙂
