There are some autoimmune diet food bloggers that are creative geniuses!  I am grateful for them; for they are making my journey towards getting healthier much less dramatic!  I’ve included below a couple recipes that are my go to that are super tasty!

This name is awesome.  And no, I’m not referring to a poodle and another dog mix!  Zoodles are zucchini “noodles”.  I make mine using a Paderno Spiralizer.  The spiralizer I have has 3 blade options for cutting.  For the zoodles, I use the “shredder” blade for the spaghetti-like strands.
