PALEO/GLUTEN FREE/DAIRY FREE/WEIGHT LOSS FRIENDLY/
10 WEEK CHALLENGE APPROVED/MEAL PREP FRIENDLY
Something about meatballs and tomato sauce screams comfort to me. For most people its the pasta because, well, carbs. But the absence of pasta replaced by zoodles satisfies me and the real star of the show is the meatballs.
The best part? This meal is ready in around half an hour, and is also made with inexpensive ingredients making it fit a lot of key aspects for most people: quick, easy and cheaply made. This is one you can also make in bulk easily which means its perfect for meal prep to save time for the working week. And if all that wasn’t enough? This is what I’d call a weight loss meal. I would eat something like this during my weight loss as part of meal prep too! So if you’re someone doing my 10 Week Challenge – then this meal is perfect for you too.
When it comes to making your zoodles, aka zucchini noodles, you’ll want either a spiraliser (fancy contraption that makes your vegetables into spirals) or a julienne peeler. I personally have a julienne peeler as I find them much easier to clean since they’re so small. If you don’t have either of these, I highly recommend investing in one as I estimate you to fall in love with zoodles pretty quick. Otherwise you can use a regular peeler and either have long strips or chop those strips into smaller julienne sized pieces. Either way – it’s going to be delicious.
