It has been quite a week for PH and I. If you didn't know already, we live in what is known as the Valley of the Sun in Phoenix Arizona. You may have heard stories of planes that were not allowed to take flight this week here in Sunny AZ, and those stories are true. I was born and raised in Phoenix and the summers come as no surprise, it just gets plain hot here. Granted, 120 degrees in June is a bit early, but it always comes. We live in a desert you know, and the desert can be such a truly beautiful place, but it's also hot. Very, very hot.
However, the most important thing to have in 120 degree weather is an air conditioning unit. Well my friends, our a/c unit died on us.
This was probably one of the most awful things to have ever happened to us, which shows how blessed we are. Since there was no way I was turning on the oven or staying in that hot house to make anything, we ate out a lot. So I don't have a recipe for you this week.
I want to direct your attention back to this post. Since posting my zoodle recipe we have come into contact with Michael from Nutrition Advance. It turns out he has this great guide to zoodles and why they're so healthy and he even has some additional recipes that you can check out here!
Summer time is a great time to zoodle it up. You don't have to turn on the oven, and while everyone is thinking about eating healthier and having that great "beach body" why not swap your pasta for zoodles?
