Sometimes talking about finances make me hungry! lol!
I wanted to show you how to substitute your meal if your spouse is a carnivore and you are a flexitarian (for better health) or vegetarian (for better health &/or you don’t like meat).
My husband eats a lot of red meat. I can’t because it makes me fat, its bad for my health and I love my veggies. I am not a big meat eater. What do I do?
Well, pasta salad and green beens were the side dishes for that night’s dinner. My “meat” addition was stuffed zucchini. Yummmmmmm! Cut zucchini in half, scoop, chop scooped, add cooked brown rice, mozzarella, little bit of spaghetti sauce, set in baking dish, cover with foil, cook 350 degrees 25-30 minutes, take foil off last 5-10 minutes to brown and Wha la! You could stuff just about anything. Its also good to top buttered breadcrumbs, too.
I will probably share with you more of my veggie foods, because I am gaining a passion for eating natural again (no processed foods, lots of veggies, lentils, beans and spices). But, its all done one step at a time. Enjoy. 🙂
Stupid question: What do you do with zucchini that you’ve scooped out? The recipe sounds divine, BTW!
It is really yummy. My tastebuds say so. 🙂
You dice the scooped portion of zucchini and add it with the rest of the ingredients. You should try it. 🙂
I love the term flexitarian, I’ve never heard it before. I’ve been veggie for 15 years but never made stuffed zucchini, I’ll have to try it.
Miss M: Veggie for 15 and you’ve never had stuffed zuchinni!? You definitely need to try 🙂
Sounds like a good recipe – we grow zucchini, or courgettes as we call them over here, quite easily in our greenhouse and garden so always have a glut of them in the late summer, so it’s always good to have another recipe for them:)
Yum, yum!!! I’ve recently gone back to whole foods and a 60-80% raw diet and I’m loving it! That other 20-40% is cooked stuff. Can’t limit myself too much, but I figure as long as I’m eating raw 50%+, then it’s a major improvement, and mostly low-cal, healthy items.
