Quite some time ago now I put it out there that one of my goals was to see my abs – well I’m getting there but had kindda parked the idea and consequently I wasn’t really doing anything to move towards achieving it. Until that is Dan said something that reminded me that “oh yeah, I was doing that wasn’t I, guess I’d better get back on it”.
To cut a long story a bit shorter, my focus for getting going again was the ‘eating starchy carbs only after exercise’ habit from Kieran’s ‘Learn to Be Lean Programme’. This is something I do struggle with so was fairly sure tightening up on this would yield some results. I was right, after only 10 days I can notice a difference around my mid-section… I’m not saying there’s abs, but there’s definitely a bit less to grab hold of shall we say.
Anyway, a couple of you had mentioned you had a sprialiser and were really getting into it so, I thought I’d get one, I imagined this would be an easy way to eat less starchy carbs and that was most appealing! I did and the rest they say is history. I’ve been making courgetti nearly every day and have it instead of pasta – the added bonus is that I’m getting more veggies in as well as less starchy carb. It’s all good.
Here’s the recipe:
You’ll need a spiraliser to make the true courgetti (I’ve got a Hemsley & Hemsley one from Amazon) but you could use a veg peeler to pare strips off the courgette – it’ll just be wider and less curly.
