Here is a Free Meal Planning Template

I brought Pizza Zoodles for lunch last, and man was I glad! A vendor had brought in pizzas and the breakroom smelled delicious. It was easy to say no to free pizza because I knew I had a healthier option with a similar flavor in my lunchbox. (I like this lunchbox because it big enough to carry all my day’s food and act as a purse.)

Gelatin, A Hidden Super Food

This healthy recipe is made just a little bit healthier by adding gelatin. Gelatin is one of the super foods you can add to almost any meal. Along with adding protein, made up of amino acids many people are deficient in, it also adds a nice body to sauces and soups. Gelatin has many of the same benefits as bone broth but can be kept in your pantry. Here is the grass-fed brand I buy on Amazon.

In Pizza Zoodles, you won’t even notice it is there, but your skin, gut, bones, and joints will thank you.

Servings 3

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon gelatin optional
  • ¼ c cool water for gelatin optional
  • 1 lb ground meat I used moose
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Avocado oil
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1-3 cloves garlic roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 package 4 oz nitrate-free pepperoni, slices cut in about 4ths
  • 3-4 oz Katamala olives black will also work
  • 4-6 zucchinis cut with spiralizer
  • Mozzarella cheese optional
  • Parsley optional

Instructions

  1. Mix water and gelatin together in a small bowl or cup and set aside (this is called blooming). Skip this step if not adding gelatin.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, browned meat and onion with enough oil to keep from sticking and salt.

  3. Once meat is browned, turn heat to low and add garlic, Italian seasoning, and balsamic vinegar. As the liquid sizzles, scrape off any brown piece stuck to the bottom of the pan, also call fond.
  4. Mix in tomato paste and bloomed gelatin
  5. Let simmer for a few minutes then turn off heat and stir in pepperoni.
  6. While the meat mixture is cooling, divide the raw zoodles (spiralized zucchinis) into 4 glass meal prep containers.
  7. Evenly divide the meat and olives place on the zoodles.
  8. Top with grated mozzarella and chopped parsley if you would like.
  9. Put lids on containers and store in the fridge.
  10. Reheat before eating,

Recipe Notes

  • Meals usually last about a week in the fridge, I usually trust my nose, but use your best judgment.
  • If you don’t have a spiralizer use a vegetable peeler to make ribbons or just slice the zucchini.
  • Tomato paste is great to use in place of tomato sauce when cooking with a lot of vegetables. It contains less moisture than the sauce and will help prevent the dish becoming too watery.
