What’s up Live Lean Nation, welcome back to the kitchen.
On today’s episode, I’m showing you how to make a low carb paleo recipe, using zucchini pasta.
Now before you stick your tongue out in disgust, trust me.
Zucchini pasta may sound weird if you’ve never tried it before.
However, when zucchini pasta is spiralized and cooked properly, the texture is very similar to a traditional wheat flour pasta.
The key is to use a spiral vegetable slicer like this one.
Plus, zucchini is a super healthy pasta substitution.
On top of all the added nutritional benefits from the zucchini pasta, you’ll also be lowering the calorie and carbohydrate amount of a traditional pasta recipe.
Even though we consider zucchini a free food, just look at the calorie difference of zucchini pasta compared to traditional wheat flour pasta.
Nutrition: 1 medium Zucchini (spiralized into pasta):
Nutrition Info: 2 oz of Wheat Flour Linguine Pasta
So if you’re a pasta lover, this is not to say you can never eat traditional pasta again.
It’s simply a healthier option, especially if you suffer from insulin resistance, and fat loss and overall health, is your goal.
So with that said, let’s get cooking, the Live Lean Way!
