ZUCCHINI NOODLES | How to make zoodles

cooked zoodle recipe

I’ve officially had zoodles every day for the last 4 days in a row. I’m zoodle obsessed!

If you don’t know what a zoodle is, I’m here to help. A zoodle is made from zucchini. You “spiralize” the zucchini into long thin strips (like noodles), and BAM you have yourself a “zoodle”!

avocado toast

I recently accepted avocados into my life. For some reason I never really liked them, or maybe I just never really tried them.

But a few months ago I bought one at the grocery store (I’m an impulse shopper), and after a day or two of staring at it, I decided I would do the grown-up thing and give it a true shot.

HEALTHY EATING | Healthy foods to keep in your kitchen

eat healthyJust like most people, I eat healthier when I keep healthy foods in my home. We all know that you can’t just survive on fruits and veggies (we all need a little candy stash somewhere in our home, just in case), but the healthier foods you have on hand, the more likely you will be to eat them.

Here are a few go-to items to always stock your fridge and pantry with. These will help you stay on track and not let mindless snacking (one of my biggest weaknesses) or unhealthy dinner options ruin your eating pattern.

LATEST RECIPE | Simple turkey burgers


It’s easy to get caught in a trend of eating out for dinner, especially when you have so many restaurants within walking distance of your apartment. Though, lately I’d been craving a delicious home cooked meal.
