    Thank’s Pam! I can’t believe I started this little blog 4 years ago, but I’m so glad that I did! It does feel good to be in the zone and in control. I so wish I knew the magic trigger that makes it happen when it happens though!

    I’m so glad that you got the veggetti! I actually only used it for zucchini noodles, but I need to expand my veggetti use!

    Sometimes, I eat the zucchini noodles raw with Turkey Spaghetti sauce and I have had them raw in a salad. My favorite is to saute them in olive oil with garlic and onions and eat them as my pasta with Turkey Spaghetti sauce. Have you ever tried the Light Ragu Alfredo Sauce? I haven’t had it in a really long time, but it’s really good and rich, so a little goes a long way. I believe that a serving size is 1/4 for 3 points, but that’s actually too much, so you could get away with 2 points for the sauce and serve it over zucchini noodles. That could be a really low point meal with a salad!

    I recently saw a recipe on Skinnytaste.com for a recipe with spiralized sweet potatoes, and I’d love to try that this week. One of the readers that made it and commented on it said that she used her veggetti!

    Maybe I need to come with a few ideas and write a “Veggetti Blog”!

    I’m glad you were able to find the Black Cherry coffee! I love that flavor!

    Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to comment! I greatly appreciate that!

    Have a Happy and Healthy Weekend!


    PS…Maybe I need to throw out some workout clothes……


  2. Julie, first of all a big congrats on your 4 years of blogging…that is triple awesome! Also wanted to say you are totally rockin the healthy food choices. So happy for you being in the zone and having all this in control. Huge accomplishment! Finally used my new veggetti…it was pretty fun. Would appreciate any ideas for using it. Also, found the dunkin donuts black cherry crisp coffee at Walmart…so good! Got a large charge out of your workout pants and bra saga…had a somewhat similar incident that pushed me to clean out, purge, and organize my workout wear, long overdue. Just wanted you to know I really appreciate your dedication to the blog, I check every morning as I’m drinking my coffee. You provide inspiration for the day. — Pam
