Vegetarian Zucchini Noodle Cobb Bowl


For those of you who dressed up this weekend to celebrate, I hope you had a blast! For those of you who are taking your kids trick-or-treating tonight (or did already this weekend), try not to get into too much of a food coma.

I hope lots of Hocus Pocus will be watched tonight and witch-like cackles will be made! Gosh, I love this holiday.

Yesterday was Lu’s 38th birthday and we celebrated it with family, just how it should be! First, on Saturday morning, we grabbed some Taylor ham, egg, and cheeses and then drove to Crystal Springs (a resort in New Jersey). We went with my sister, Felicia, and her boyfriend, Ben.

Whenever I told anyone last week that Lu was turning 38 on Sunday, they couldn’t believe it. He looks much younger than 38, although I think all men get better with age (what’s that about?!), so I welcome the older age!

Crystal Springs was a blast – we played foot golf (golf with a soccer ball – so you kicked a soccer ball instead of swinging a club at a golf ball) for hours. It was way more fun than I thought it would be! It was just an overall fun, festive weekend with good peeps.

On the way home on Sunday (his actual birthday), we drove to see his niece, brother, and sister-in-law and had birthday cake. Cue the sugar coma. Our niece Gabriella is the smartest 18 month year old I’ve ever met – her vocabulary is insane. Even after meeting my sister for 5 minutes (whose name is Felicia – not exactly the easiest thing to pronounce), she goes up to my sister and whispers in her ear, “Felicia!” Adorable.

Then we drove home, unpacked, and absolutely chilled on the couch. I gave Lu his birthday gift (I got him a matte black wedding band, because he’s been dying for one), and just watched TV, ordered in, and relaxed.

I woke up this morning feeling very lethargic and weighed down – a weekend of celebratory sugar, drinks ,and non-stop eating has left my body craving veggies. I can’t wait to have salad this week, work out, drink loads of water, and sip green juices in between. It’s that kind of week!

Luckily, I have plenty of healthy inspiration on this blog and in both of my cookbooks, so I’m well-equipped. Today, I’m really excited to share this zucchini noodle dish, packed with flavor, color, and of course, veggies. I’ve been on a real veggie burger kick lately (I’ve been loving Amy’s California Veggie Burger). I’ll cook the veggie burger, chop it up, and add it to a spiralized veggie bowl, like here.

This bowl meal is meant to be a play on a Cobb salad, without the bacon and eggs. While I love a loaded Cobb salad, sometimes, it’s nice to take a break from all those extras and keep it clean and simple. To add flavor and creaminess, I used Tessemae’s new dairy-free Creamy Ranch Dressing. It’s so perfectly flavored and the texture mimics a true Ranch, you’ll never use regular Ranch dressing again. Their original Ranch dressing was made with coconut milk and this new one is egg based, giving a creamy and smooth texture (similar to a true Ranch.) If you want to pick it up yourself, they’re carried at Walmart!

The ingredients in this gluten-free, organic, non-GMO, Whole30-approved dressing are: High Oleic Sunflower Oil, Water, Lemon Juice, Mustard (Vinegar, Water, Mustard Seeds, Salt, Spices), Cage Free Salted Egg Yolks (Cage Free Egg Yolks, Salt), Distilled Vinegar, Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Onion Powder, Dill, Garlic Powder, Parsley, Whole Egg. 

Every crunchy twirl of zucchini noodle comes with a delicious dip of this healthy Ranch dressing. I love the raw zucchini noodles here – they make this noodle bowl feel healthy and refreshing. I’m looking forward to making meals like this all week.

Note: Although this post was sponsored by Tessemae’s, all opinions are my own, always.

Is this meant to serve 2? It says 1/4 c. dressing, but serves one? And it says "in each bowl" all the other ingredients look accurate. Just wanted to clarify!

I have nothing prolific to say today (I’ve just been madly testing recipes for this project I’ll be announcing soon) except that today was the first day in my life that I actually enjoyed sliced tomatoes on a sandwich. 🍅 🍞⁣

I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, except in something subtle like a pico de gallo or if they’re a tiny part of a meal, like a garnish. but today, I made this chickpea tuna salad melt with tomatoes and spinach and LOVED it. 👍🏼⁣

it got me thinking… I can’t be the only one. do you like raw tomatoes? 🤔

luca made a friend today! 👦🏼 🚴‍♂️⁣

one of the things that has made me sad during COVID has been that Luca hasn't spent much time with other kids his age. this summer, we had a little pod of a few kids, but slowly but surely, as the year went on, kids moved to the suburbs, enrolled in school (we didn't feel comfortable), and then as the temperature dropped, the rest of the kids stopped braving the cold and since we felt uncomfortable with indoor playdates, it was really just our little family hanging out. and Luca wasn't hanging out with anyone his age much. ⁣

I have so many thoughts on this. will this change his personality and social skills forever? will he be socially awkward? will he lose out on so many developmental milestones? will this affect his emotional awareness? the list goes on. I know it's only a year or so, but that's over 1/3 of his entire life!⁣

and now that we're in Florida, we just keep to ourselves at my parents' house and don't see any other kids. it's so nice to be together as a family, and I know so many families can't be together right now, so I'm so grateful for that. the other day, Luca saw a 7-year-old boy on a bike in my parents' neighborhood and he asked us if he could be his friend. I almost broke down in tears.⁣

so by chance, we were out on his bike this afternoon and sure enough, we saw the little boy again, riding his bike, with his mother. in that moment, I knew I had to make a move - so I called out to the mother and asked her, "I know this is going to sound weird, but my son would love to hang out with your son! I'd love to get your number so they can ride bikes together sometime!" I was so nervous, haha! ⁣

and just like that, Luca made a friend! they immediately started riding their bikes together (it was so cute I couldn't handle it!!!) and Roma even came a little bit later and literally slipped her hand into the little boy's hand, it was like she was starving for that connection. it was so adorable, and I'm so happy for Luca to have someone to safely play outside with and so I can shed some of this mama worry.⁣

as for these chocolate donuts, search the blog, they’re an oldie but a goodie! 🍩🍫

it's a mouthful, but it's mouth-watering. 👅 my TERIYAKI SALMON with RICED BUTTERNUT SQUASH and SESAME BROCCOLI 🥦  is live on the blog, and it's another must-add to your weekly meal plan. okay I say that all the time, but seriously - I'm only sharing recipes I make for our family, and these have all been slam dunks 🏀⁣

and last week I started the #inspiralizedmealplanideas hashtag so we'd have a running list of weekly meal ideas from this community, and it's a Monday thing, so tell me - what's ONE meal you're making this week? 🍴 leave it in the comments below and be sure to check back to see what other people are making and even SAVE this post for future reference! 📌⁣
