Vegan Bolognese Zoodles

Sunday, April 09, 2017


Hi guys! It's amazing sunny day today! We love spring for longer, sunny days, green blossoming trees and all of those beautiful flowers! But as well this is a hard time for our body, we had just changed the clock time and the weather is variable. It's called as springtime blues and for us - we have it every single year :/ So we try to beat it with cool activities and natural food full with vitamins.


Most people who have problems with springtime blues have issues like anxiety, troubles with falling asleep and than they're tired the whole days. Some have also problems with weight, we look for solution in sweets to make our mood better.



But our way to beat the springtime blues are activities outside when it's sunny and having healthy (not every single day) nutritious food. We try to use fresh veggies - not to lose their profits with boiling or frying. 



So today we have for you this easy and tasty recipe for Bolognese Zoodles. We love zoodles (noodles made from fresh zucchini) - it's quick to make them and healthy - when you substitute wheat pasta with zucchini, you get more vitamins and less calories! And I can promise you, you won't be hungry soon :) Also zucchini noodles are crispy, so it gives you more enjoyment from eating.



We make our zoodles with easy spiralizer. And the sauce in this recipe is also so yummy and having lentils in it - we give our body lots of protein. It's filled with tomatoes and some spices. I can bet you will love it! And also for our meatlovers - you can use this recipe and put on top of the dish some meat balls :) It's still better (I mean healthier, more nutritious - because I love Italian food!) than classic spaghetti with ready to eat sauce (and you don't know what's in).
