I hope everyone had a great 4th of July holiday! Did you do anything fun? We didn’t do much, had a nice long weekend, worked out, relaxed and ate food.  I got some rib-eye’s to grill last night and they were perfect! We actually had a completely Whole 30 dinner (unintentionally) and it was delicious!

If I ever do a Whole 30 again and think it’s boring, I’ll remember this dinner!

And speaking of Whole 30, this recipe just so happens to be Whole 30 compliant!

I was looking for something light to make for lunches for my husband and I last week, and I knew I wanted to use my spiralizer to make zucchini noodles.  I love zucchini noodles, or “zoodles” as they are referred to.  They make such a great gluten-free and low-carb alternative to regular noodles, and they were the perfect base for this light and healthy recipe.
