Eating things that are green
Thursday, June 21, 2012
I decided on the fly to make zucchini "pasta," after reading that I could use a vegetable peeler to strip the flesh instead of julienning the whole thing. Win for the internetz.
I melted some butter in a pan, mixed a little olive oil in, and added some crushed garlic to make a nice sauce, then sauteed the zucchini "noodles" until they were softened.
It's delicious, but I should have salted and squeezed the zucchini first instead of just squeezing it.
I then took the seedy core, sliced it, and tasted a slice of raw zucchini core. It was also delicious! I saved the cores and the actual skins to put on salads. Waste not. I really will eat anything green.
In the meantime, we're eating the breaded chicken tenders from Publix tonight. I know it's not Whole30 approved, but I'm at a point in my income (read: broke) that I eat whatever is for dinner. Most of the time we eat separately anyway, and she's pretty much down with me eating "weird," so consider it a modified Whole30 in that, if Mom serves, I eat. Period.
