  1. I made these last Monday with some shrimp for bachelor Monday and they were a hit with my girls and TIU boyfriend, so so good!!

  2. THESE ARE SOOOO GOOD! I have them on repeat for Week 2 for my lean bowls.

    And on another note- I absolutely LOVED the superfood Cobb Salad. Thanks for the awesome new recipes!!

  3. Loved this and so did my husband (with reg. spaghetti ;)). The salmon was a big hit too!

  4. It was a great week for recipes on the plan! Loved the zoodles, loved the Cobb salad (ate it four times this week), and the salmon was so good my husband drank the sauce like it was soup! 🤷‍♀️😊❤️

  5. After I ran the sauce ingredients through my blender it made around 12 oz of sauce. I added the sauce by the spoonful then tossed the zoodles so they weren’t drenched. I’m happy I can stretch the sauce to 6 servings. This recipe is delicious!

    1. I had a lot of extra sauce too. Thought I messed something up. It was delicious but a little too flavorful so next time I will reserve some for another use.

  6. The TIU team has gone above and beyond with the recipes for this Love Your Body Series 2!! I have never enjoyed my meals more than I have this past week. These zoodles were filling and tasty. I actually sat in my break room audibly saying “mmmm” during every meal I ate at work. And shockingly, I am finally seeing my abs popping out and it’s only been a week!! I am SO excited for what’s in store the next 7 weeks!!

    If you haven’t invested in the TIU nutrition plan and you’re waiting for a sign to start your life towards health and toned bliss, THIS IS IT!!!! ❤️

  7. Did anyone else make these and they turned out SUPER spicy? I have their suggested chili paste but my mouth is on fire!!! I do love these and can imagine them tasting so good with less heat. I would love any suggestions to make them less spicy :)
