I’ve been gluten free for a while now and aside from losing weight, there have been a myriad of other health benefits to being gluten free. I’ve found more recently that some elements of the paleo diet are extremely beneficial to me. My SpiraLife vegetable spiralizer has been a godsend through all of this and I’ve worked to adapt many recipes to suit my new lifestyle. Finding a way to enjoy all the delicious pasta sauces and preparations without the gluten or grain really has improved my health so much.
One of my favorite websites is PaleOmazing.com. PaleOmazing is a recipe and health website run by Tina Turbin that really is a guiding line in the gluten free, paleo and healthy living community. Tina has may fantastic recipes that are easy and healthy to make and the articles she shares on subjects from raw coconut oil to cold press coffee to the effects of food on the body have been so helpful.
That is why I was thrilled when Tina decided to share one of my recipes her website. Being deeply involved in “zoodling” I of course shared a spiraled veggie recipe, Herbed Ghee with Zoodles. This recipe is exclusive to PaleOmazing and won’t be found anywhere else. If you haven’t yet heard of ghee, I definitely recommend reading up on it. Ghee is great for those who are lactose (sugar in milk) and casein, (protein in milk) intolerant so if this is you or someone you know, I highly recommend looking into it. There are some brands that are safer than others and the brand I use in my recipe (introduced to me by PaleOmazing) is an amazing one. They batch test their ghee for gluten, lactose and casein on a regular basis.
My recipe on PaleOmazing is very simple to make, as are most all of my recipes. I love to work in the kitchen and am also very busy, as I’m sure you are, so I really love to be able to get a lot done in a little bit of time. And for it to be good for you. The ghee in this recipe can be replaced with butter for those who do well with dairy. You can also sprinkle a bit of fresh parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs on top for a little extra flavor and texture.
I hope you visit PaleOmazing.com and enjoy my recipe. Please do also take a look around her site. It really is a fantastic resource.
