SO Sweeeet!

There’s a NEW 100% veggie noodle your kids will eat and is WAY better on your waistline than traditional spaghetti nights.

Has your family eaten “oodles of zoodles” and you think it’s time for change?  Mine does 😉

Or did the zucchini noodles “zoodle’ thing never catch on in your home?

Oodles of Zoodles! Sundried Tomato and Chicken Skillet Zoodle Recipe

Then, you gotta try sweet potato noodles!

Sweet Potato Noodles

Sweet potatoes are sweet, filling and good for you.

Sweet potatoes are an excellent swap for white potatoes and pasta because they are a low glycemic food that releases sugar slowly into the blood stream instead of quickly spiking your blood sugar levels and turning those white potatoes and white pasta into sugar that quickly turns into unwanted fat.

Eating sweet potatoes can greatly enhance the health of your skin due to the high content of beta-carotene, which helps convert vitamin A in your body that triggers DNA responsible to produce new skin cells. Ever wonder why most of your skincare products have retinoic acid and retinol in them? – Sweet Potato Nutrition Facts and Benefits

The vegetable spiralizer I use to make these noodles is this one and it’s been the BEST $20 I’ve ever spent on a kitchen tool.

If you absolutely have no more kitchen cupboard space, I like this super small hand held one too.

The ginger I used was fresh, but the recipe calls for powder.

I was just psyched about the HUGE Costco size of Melissa’s organic ginger that I HAD TO use fresh.

The Simply Organic spices I usually use are found for the best price here.

 

Easy to Make Meatballs

These meatballs are easy to make and cooked faster in my new Le Creuset pan.  Yipee!

Le Cruset or not, these meatballs are made in minutes and are sweet without the sugar.

The meatballs are sweetly glazed with coconut aminos (the best allergy free alternative to soy sauce because it’s soy free and gluten free) and with some fresh squeezed orange juice.

Best place and best price to buy coconut aminos and have it delivered to your door is here.

Making a sweet glaze without the sugar was sweet and easy and made this dish a little fancy without all the work.

When I was cooking these sweet noodles, I remembered that this recipe time can be cut down even more if you bought sweet potatoes that were already spiralized for you.

I saw these done for you at Whole Foods Market and it might be worth it to check your local store.

Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the coconut oil on medium heat. When the oil is melted and the pan is hot, add the onion and cook, stirring for 8 minutes or until translucent. Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring for a minute, just until fragrant. Remove from heat and place onion mixture into a bowl. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  2. When the onion mixture has cooled, add it to a large mixing bowl with the ground beef, thyme, and salt and pepper. Gently mix with your hands until everything is well incorporated. Form into 1-1/2 inch meatballs.
  3. Add 2 more tablespoons of the oil in the bottom of the skillet used for the onions on medium heat. When the oil is melted and the skillet is hot, add the meatballs. Brown for three minutes on one side, flip and add the orange juice and coconut aminos. Cook covered, for 10 minutes, or until cooked throughout. Remove meatballs from pan and set aside. Leave the remaining juices in the pan and turn up to medium-high heat. Let the sauce reduce to about half the amount, about 5-10 minutes. Set sauce aside.
  4. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the sweet potato into long, flat ribbons, or spiralize it with a vegetable spiralizer.
  5. In another skillet, heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil on medium-high heat. When the oil has melted and the pan is hot, add half of the sweet potatoes. Let them cook, stirring, for about 10 minutes, being sure not to stir them too often to ensure that they brown on the bottoms. Remove the first batch, then add the remaining oil and repeat with the second batch of sweet potatoes.
