But wait, let me start at the beginning…

When you are trying to eat healthy and do most of your cooking at home, sooner or later you run out of ideas for healthy meals that you want to eat.  And then you end up buying fried chicken from Publix on a Wednesday night because  you didn’t plan well and dang it, you are hungry.  So confession: I’m doing Weight Watchers. I didn’t want to give up the money for it at first because in my mind, I should have been able to use one of those nifty apps like  My Fitness Pal for free and everything. But…free doesn’t motivate me. #keepingitreal.  So  last month, I lost  9.4 pounds staying within my points.  But chicken breast gets boring for dinner after a while, no matter how many different ways there are to make it.   So I was trolling Pinterest last week for ideas and trying to meal plan when I came across this recipe. I was fascinated by the idea that they were using Zucchini for noodles. I investigated further and discovered there was a whole community out there making zucchini noodles. But…I hate zucchini I said to myself. But then I saw this recipe…and thought..ok…..

So I got myself a spiralizer and proceeded to experiment. ..and experiment…and experiment. And Thursday night, I hit the jackpot with this Zucchini Noodles and Shrimp Stir Fry.

I had to make it again Friday for lunch just to make sure it was actually good. And that it could be re-created.  I changed a few things after the first attempt and now I have this one written down.

    Ooh. This looks tasty and delicious! Unfortunately, I have allergies with shrimps. Maybe, I will replace the shrimp with fish. However, I’m sure that my friend would love this recipe. I’m going to tell her about this. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you! I have been talking to my husband about buying a spiral cutter and he always says no. However, with our wanting to go healthier and this incredible recipe I think he would relent. He loves stir fry and Lo Mein type dishes and has started liking zucchini, so I think he will adore this dish.

    I love zucchini zoodles so much. They are my favorite thing to pair with stir fry. I have never put shrimp in my stir fry, but I know my husband would go crazy for that. He just loves shrimp.

    I have a spiralizer and I keep saying that I’m going to use it soon, buy the zucchinis, they go bad, and I still haven’t used it yet. Zucchini stir fry is one of the meals that I want to try badly. I never thought of pairing it with shrimp – your recipe looks really good.
