While zucchini is great in the summer, I easily get burned out after a few weeks. This desperation lead to a great discovery: zucchini disappears in spaghetti sauce. Yes, you read that right.
Zucchini disappears in spaghetti sauce.
When zucchini is finely shredded, it will almost “melt” into a cooking sauce – particularly a tomato sauce. The key is to shred it finely, using either a box grater or a food processor.
We discovered this beautiful secret while on a challenge to up our veggie intake. But the principle applies to more than just pasta sauce!

TAKE A LOOK AT THESE 6 USES:

  1. Add 1-1.5 cups to spaghetti sauce.
  2. Add 1 cup to the cheese mixture in lasagna (or to the sauce itself).
  3. Add 1/2 cup to ground beef, like when making “cheeseburger helper”.
  4. Add two tablespoons to a smoothie.
  5. Add 1-1.5 cups to chili – including white chicken chili.
  6. Add 1/2 cup to stuffed peppers, stuffed cabbage rolls, and other similar dishes.
If you notice, I use shredded zucchini in small amounts – sometimes as little as a few tablespoons! Which leads to a problem… how do you save time using shredded zucchini when you only use a small amount?

The rate of diabetes could easily become an epidemic that overwhelms the medical industry, especially as some numbers predict the rate of cases doubling from 190 million to 380 million over the next two and a half decades [1]. The good news is that in most cases insulin production in the body, and the body’s ability to properly handle it, is most often a dietary issue. This means that a proper eating plan that is carefully followed can be enough for most people to overcome their insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a warning flag for diabetes and can make weight loss extremely difficult even for individuals who shouldn’t have a problem dropping pounds. This is where  the Insulin Resistance Die
