Zucchini Hash


I’m on day 3 of following the Keto plan & I feel like my body may be adapting… FINALLY!

The first couple days I had a migraine like you would NOT believe. Pair that with extreme fatigue and I think that’s what they call the “Keto flu.” My body is wanting those carbs for fuel- but I’m fighting it!

I’m hoping that by following this nutrition, my hormones will balance out & I’ll heal my gut! Being dairy & gluten intolerant, I’m sure there’s some healin that needs to be done!

I picked up my friend Brianne from the airport today. TOTAL perk of living in Orlando is getting to see people when they take trips! I made this zucchini hash for us because we were hungry & I had it all on hand. I wanted to use potatoes instead of the zucchini but I couldn’t lol. I do like the texture the zucc brought to the table though.


Here’s what I did:

Zucchini Hash: serves 4

***************

2 zucchini chopped

3/4 red onion chopped

1 red pepper chopped

1 green pepper

2 tbsp of coconut oil

1 lb turkey sausage (or you can be like me and mix these spices into a lb of ground turkey or pork: 1 tsp of the following: dry mustard, dried sage, red pepper flakes and smoked paprika. Add 1/2 tsp of black pepper and 3/4 tsp salt and stir that in with your ground meat of choice…It has a little spice to it, so if you like yours mild, you may wanna reduce the red pepper flakes and black pepper!)

***************

Brown the turkey sausage in the pan with the coconut oil & remove from the pan. Then add in the red onion & cook for about 10 minutes or until they start to caramelize. Then add in the rest of the veggies. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, & paprika to taste.

Cook about 5 minutes so the veggies are still a little crisp tender. Then add the sausage back in & stir it up! Taste test & that’s it!

Lemme know whatcha think! It’s REALLY good topped with avocado!

For those of you using the container system for 21 day fix or Country Heat: 1 red, 1 green, 2 tsp

For those of you that are keto…my fitness pal said it was: 300 calories, 15.8 g fat, 9.9 g carbs, 29.4 g protein.
