zoodles with chicken sausage // whole30 approved

I get asked a lot if I miss eating pasta. To be honest, I was never a big pasta eater. I don't really care for spaghetti or lasagna. My weakness is tacos, pizza, and the perfect cupcake.

Zoodles are my favorite. I love making them with avocado oil, a little sea salt and pepper, and then topping them with baked salmon, sausage, or shrimp.

This meal was super easy to make, and really filling.

I already meal prepped a bunch of Trader Joe's Spicy Italian Sausages. I baked the whole pack, and keep them in the fridge. They are always great to keep on hand for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I grabbed one large zucchini, and use my Spiraletti that I found at Target. Once I had spiralized the whole zucchini, I added it to a pan, drizzled with avocado oil, and seasoned with sea salt, and pepper. I cooked the zoodles on medium heat with a handful of cherry tomatoes, until they turned soft, but not too soft. While the zoodles and tomatoes were cooking, I diced up a  TJ's Spicy Italian Chicken Sausage.

Place in a large bowl, or on a plate, and enjoy! This meal is perfect if you are eating low carb high fat meals, and it's all Whole30 approved! If you aren't eating strict paleo, or doing a Whole30 - try adding some goat cheese to this! It would be AMAZING!! 

Give zoodles a chance!

trader joe's // whole30 approved haul

I love sharing my grocery hauls! Trader Joe's is probably one of my favorite grocery stores. They offer a great selection of organic food, and it's not expensive. Even though I am not doing a Whole30, I love stocking up on Whole30 approved food there.

I can always find organic sweet potatoes there, and their Spicy Italian Chicken Sausage is great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Try making their sausage with some scrambled eggs, diced sweet potatoes, and it's the perfect Whole30 approved breakfast. 

Love that it's fig season!! I picked up a pack of figs, and tossed them in the freezer for later. I always grab a jar of coconut oil. I rarely cook with it, but I use it mostly for a moisturizer, and I oil pull.

Hope you enjoy my Whole30 approved grocery haul!!
