Healthy turkey zucchini boats that consist of 5 ingredients? Is this real life? Yes, yes it is. This dinner is comforting and so simple to make. Low-carb, paleo-friendly and gluten-free.
Yes, I’m a food blogger. I love cooking. I love creating. But sometimes the last thing I want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen at night preparing dinner after a long day of working and a workout. That’s where quick and easy recipes like this come in! Healthy eating doesn’t have to involve crazy superfood ingredients or take hours to meal prep.
Showing that healthy eating can be practical, simple and delicious has always been my mission with Eating Bird Food. I can’t give all of the details just yet but I am creating an epic ebook (an online/downloadable cookbook) for all my low-key home chefs out there who are looking for easy recipes to stay fit.
Simple, accessible, healthy. Who’s in?
These zucchini boats are quickly becoming a favorite in my household. I love them because they consist of only five ingredients, they’re loaded with protein and veggies and nearly effortless to create. Isaac loves them because they are delicious and basically a mixture between pizza and pasta, two of his favorite foods.
Feel free to get creative with these! You can add any vegetables you have laying around, add extra spices, add different meat or make them meatless by using crumbled tempeh. Make them work for you. They are the perfect ‘build your own’ meal.
Enjoy these zucchini boats on their own or pair them with a salad like this Garlicky Kale Salad. It’s the perfect combo if I do say so myself… basically like a night at your local pizza/pasta joint in the comfort of your own home!
