Champion Performance Recipe of the Week - Zucchini Noodles

Competition diet is too often bland and boring. While I do eat a lot of the same foods, I also try hard to mix it up and keep things interesting. One of the best things (and most fun) is using my Spiral Vegetable Slicer . I LOVE this thing! From sweet potato curly fries on carb day to cucumber and zucchini noodles, this terrific accessory is 2nd only to my Ninja in sheer use! If you don't already have one, consider adding this to your kitchen! It really does make competition diet more fun ;-)

Zucchini Lemon Noodles
serves 1

1 zucchini, with skin
1/2 fresh lemon
Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb
Protein of choice (I used 5 oz diced roasted turkey breast)

Chop off ends of zucchini and place in Spiral Vegetable Slicer to create noodles.
Place noodles in steamer bag and add a sprinkle of Mrs Dash.
Microwave on high 1 minute, 30 seconds.
Allow to rest in bag 1 minute.
Place "noodles" in bowl and squeeze lemon over them.
