Let me start off by saying… “I never claimed to be the cook of the house”. My hubby (from Mobile AL) does most of the hard core cooking and I pride myself in “preparing” meals by ordering take out 🙂 I do LOVE to eat healthy but it gets really tough when you’re constantly on the go. I was SOO excited when my twin sis introduced me to #FitMenCook and I’m proud to admit… FOOD pulled out my drive for fitness which has been hidden for over 5 years.
Ok, with that said… I finally settled down from my workload to visit the local farmers market! I was able to pick up a few items for my new FitMenCook dish (quest) made with raw veggies, zucchini noodles, prawns and sesame ginger dressing.
and I ended up with THIS… fettuccini noodles, white shrimp, squash, zucchini and red peppers! Ok, so my dish looks NOTHING like FMC… LOL! I was really intimidated by the Chinese noodles so I picked up a box of good ole familiar fettuccini. I really had to keep in mind the point of this whole project which is to create healthy dishes the best way I can for a better life style… not to literally duplicate the image. With that said… my hubby watched over me as I added a few of my personal favorites and vwa la… I came up with a decent tasting meal for me & my boys! And as an added bonus…they actually enjoyed it 🙂
