Have you ever tried Zoodles? This veg noodle trend hit the health market pretty strong! That’s because it’s a fantastic low-carb noodle alternative that taste great! It is also very versatile, you can cook it or eat it raw. If you haven’t tried it, you definitely should! Having zoodles with my arrabbiata sauce and some chicken balls is one of my favorite ways to have them. Another would be to have it with some creamy zesty avocado sauce that I promise I’ll share in the near future! So what are you waiting for? If you’re looking for a low-carb meal but are craving noodles, have some zoodles! This Zoodle Arrabbiata with Chicken Balls is a sure winner!

I have to admit, I love burgers. But I hate the thought of filling my body with all the unecessary crap. That’s why I love bunless burgers! I honestly think the flavors of a patty will shine more without the bun. Whether it be beef, chiken or fish, I’d always skip the buns and have them with more lettuce. Well, that’s just me please don’t judge burger fans! Anyways, because of that I’ve created my ultimate Bunless Chicken Burger recipe that I hope all of you will love!
