Anytime I’m looking for a quick, tasty and healthy lunch, I make the same thing: zucchini noodles and basil pesto, especially in the summertime.
I top the noodles with chickpeas, tomatoes, and avocado. With today’s version, the pesto already has avocado in it, so it takes even less prep time and makes for such a heart healthy dish, it may become your new go-to as well!
Today’s recipe is actually another one that’s not mine (yesterday’s was not mine either – it was from the new Whole30 cookbook!)
This delicious bowl of zucchini noodles was created by the lovely ladies from the new Healthy Glow Collective. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know the founders (Lee from Fit Foodie Finds and Monique from Ambitious Kitchen) through the virtual blogosphere and in-real-life at blogger events.
These girls have created an approachable, easy-to-follow 6-week Healthy Glow Guide, designed to make you feel nourished, satisfied, and happy. Their guide is divided into three parts:
- Weekly Meal Plans and Workouts: Introductory info on how to use the Guide, get involved with the community as well as comprehensive meal plans, grocery lists and workouts organized by week.
- Recipes and Nutrition Appendix: 85+ recipes corresponding to each item in the meal plan and a complete breakdown of nutrition information by recipe. We’re excited to share that the majority of our recipes are naturally gluten-free! We’ve also included icons to help users identify gluten-free and dairy-free recipes to suit their individual dietary preferences.
- Exercise Library: Step-by-step breakdown of all exercises featured in the weekly workouts for users who need more detailed instruction.
Most importantly, it was created by real girls, who eat, drink, and live their life to the fullest – and they’ve put together what I believe to be is a very relatable program towards refreshing yourself.
If you’re the type who likes to follow programs, try this one out! I’m a member of their private Facebook community and it’s amazing to see all the love from all the girls that have joined this program – it’s so inspiring, sometimes I just scroll through it for personal motivation!
And of course, any guide that includes a meal like this is Inspiralized-approved :)
