Hiiiiiiii! So last time we spoke we were super dee duper frustrated with life!!! So we sat down together and made a list of things to help us get excited about our journey again!!! At the top of that list was NEW RECIPES!!! I don’t know about you…but I very easily get stuck in a rut and start buying the same things over and over again until I want to barf just thinking about it…hello egg muffins!!! So we got onto Pinterest (meatballsgetfit) and started pinning everything that looked different and out of our comfort zone. Jenny came over and we decided to make paleo cashew chicken and cauliflower rice because we both love Asian food so much…spoiler alert I forked up the rice and it quickly became cauliflower mashed potatoes #nothingsaysasianlikemashedpotatoes…woops! Also if you follow us on instagram (twomeatballsgetfit) you know I’m obsessed with my veggie spiraler that I got on Amazon. This and a food processor have been my saviour from feeling deprived on paleo!!! It takes any tippy veggie and you crank out a pasta like ribbon…without the guilt.
Jenny tried my squash pasta at lunch today and she loved it…as she mentioned before she can’t get on board with spaghetti squash but really liked the texture of normal yellow squash pasta…it’s so good!!! So she simultaneously made my squash pasta Florentine with prosciutto and Turkey meatballs creation while I made the cashew chicken. We have so much fun together no matter what we do…so it was nice to tackle a project that’s going to nourish us and keep things interesting! Here are our recipes and pictures…we hope you enjoy!!! Also you’ll notice lots of pictures of me washing hands and scrubbing counters…I have an irrational fear of death by salmonella poisoning and its a real problem for me and not something many people know…now you know me a little better!!! #obsession Xoxo we love you.
First we set the mood with music…
Then we got adorable…
We couldn’t be happier to be together!
Ok onto the squahta as I like to call it…do you see what I did there??!!
3-4 medium yellow squash
1 small package of sliced prosciutto
4 Turkey meatballs (we got all if these things from Trader Joe’s)
1/2 bag of organic spinach
2 Tbsp of avocado oil
3 gives garlic minced
Dried basil, oregano, salt and pepper to taste
Ok so first heat up a pan on medium high heat…add avocado oil and garlic. Spiral your squash noodles right into the pan and add your spinach, prosciutto and your microwave heated Turkey meatballs. Then sprinkle your spices and let cook while occasionally stirring for ten minutes or until squash is cooked through. Then eat it you nut…it’s soooooo flippin good!!!!
Here’s the aftermath!!!
Make this stuff and share it with your friends!!! Use your frustrations for good, not evil!
