4 Ingredient Basil Walnut Pesto + more Zoodles

Every time I buy a packet of fresh herbs at the grocery store, I tell myself, “I really need to plant an herb garden”. I always get frustrated paying $2-4 dollars for each packet of herbs only to feel rushed to use them the day I buy them since they don’t usually keep for more than a couple of days. The last time I was at Trader Joes, I finally bit the bullet and bought the basil plant for $2.99. I then stopped into Lowes to buy a pot and soil, only after consulting with my husband about whether I needed to transfer the plant to a larger pot, and if I actually needed to buy more soil.

“Zoodles” with hatch chile crusted shrimp

Thank you to all who participated in our Whole Foods giveaway, the winner has been emailed! On to todays post, zoodles!

Did you celebrate National Zucchini Day a couple of weeks ago? Yeah, me neither. I thought I was up to date on current nutrition trends, but I guess I missed this one. Who knew there was a day to honor the squash that is rich in folate, potassium and vitamin A. I started to see my instagram feed fill with images of oversized zucchini, stuffed zucchini boats, zucchini bread and even zucchini noodles. I was quickly inspired to pull out my shiny new spiralizer!

I have wanted a spiralizer for a while, and my wish was fulfilled when my husband got me this one for Mothers Day. Spiralizers come in all different varieties and price points, but the concept is the same. This gadget allows you to make tasty “noodles” out of various vegetables, such as zucchini, butternut squash and sweet potatoes. There are different attachments that create different size “noodles. The possibilities are endless, and just a quick Pinterest search of “spiralizer recipes” will have you drooling!
