I’ve always been in tune with my body and diet. As soon as I start to eat anything that strays from my normal (largely plant-based, meat and dairy moderated), I immediately feel bogged down. A healthy diet has long been a big part of my life as it makes me feel good, helps me perform athletically and keeps me full throughout the day. Consider this recipe the food pairing to the What the Health film review. Not only is it easy to make and fills you up, but it makes your body happy and is super tasty. At the end of this post, I have also provided some statistics that are in the documentary What the Health, to help us think about the importance of health and how we live our lives.

When the craze of zoodles (yes that’s right, zoodles - not noodles) came out a few years ago, I immediately jumped on it. I love being able to replace pasta with more veggies and therefore, this has been one of my go-to dinners for quite some time.
What you’ll need:
2 cups Summer Squash Zoodles (make the at home with your zoodle-maker or you can buy pre-cut)
1 clove garlic
cup of brussel sprouts or any other veggies
2 tablespoons olive oil
spices: dash of dried rosemary, oregano, basil and salt and pepper to taste
optional: Can of tuna, grilled salmon or diced chicken
½ cup pesto (store bought or made at home in food-processor: if homemade see this link: https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/2653-basic-pesto)
