Grain-Free Fettuccine Alfredo or Chicken Fauxccine Alfredo
1/4 Cup Onions
1 Small Zucchini
2 Garlic cloves, pressed
1/3 Cup Alfredo Sauce (make your own or use pre-made)
1/2 Cup Mushrooms, mushrooms
Pinch of sea salt
Spinkle of Parmesan
Grill the chicken with onions until browned. Cut the ends off the Zucchini and peel (with a potato peeler) the outer layer and discard. Make two cuts on the zucchini down the middle, like an X, but not all the way to the end, and continue to peel. This should make long, thin ribbons of the zucchini that aren't too wide. It should look like the photo below on the left. Remove the chicken from the pan and add the pressed garlic, zucchini and sprinkle with salt. Add sliced mushrooms and saute. The more you stir, the more torn up the "noodles" get, so be gentle. When the zucchini appears translucent add the sauce and let it bubble. Chop up the chicken breast and place on top, sprinkle with Parmesan and enjoy!
I've had Spaghetti Squash before, but this tasted so much better. For me, this has the same texture and taste as fettuccine. It LOOKED like it too and I could swirl it around my fork. Who knew zucchinni was so versatile. Belly Fat Cure, Fast Track, Paleo or Primal - I refuse to think of them as extreme or think I am denying myself. I feel better, I sleep better and I'm pretty sure I look better. You might even say I'm eating better. If you are new to a low sugar diet or have just given up grains, this might not taste as good. So come back to again in a month, when your taste buds aren't expecting the same old thing.
I hope you enjoy it!
