Happy Friday and CHEERS to another great weekend ahead!

A weekend full of joy and things that make me smile: sunshine, good red wine, warm weather, time spent with family around a Friday night fire, great workouts, an afternoon run, planting flowers and herbs around my back yard to make it a more inviting space in this spring weather, a fun night of laughter with friends, church, enjoying some quiet….this was my weekend a couple weeks

…and spending time in the kitchen making some new recipes. A weekend away from the baseball field usually means that I get to play with new recipes in the Fit Envy Kitchen and if they turn out well, I then pass them along to you all 🙂 

I wanted to remember to write this one down and share it before I forget how I made it (this does happen too often)! I find myself using my own app when I am cooking and baking to remember the recipes that I come up with on the fly….

This one was definitely a keeper!  Try it and let me know how you like it – especially with zucchini season upon us soon.

Weekend Zoodles with Spicy Avocado Sauce


4 medium zucchini ( Spiralized )
1 medium avocado
Juice of 1 lime
Large handful of arugula (about 1-2 cups)
1 large garlic clove
Olive oil
Pink Himalayan Salt, fresh cracked pepper and dash of cayenne to taste
1 tsp chili powder or Peruvian Chili Lime seasoning

  • Spiralize 4 zucchini. Place zoodles in a colander over the sink and sprinkle with salt to let the water drain for about 30 minutes.
  • In a food processor, combine all other ingredients – adding olive oil slowly until reaching desired consistency. (I added about 1/8 cup)
  • Set the sauce aside. In a cast iron skillet or favorite frying pan, add to zoodles over medium heat and cook for about 3-4 minutes, just until cooked through. I do not like them mushy.  Make sure you keep a close eye on them while heating because they can over cook and become mushy very quickly.
  • Top with avocado sauce and enjoy!!
