$ What Makes this High-Vibing Food?

  • First and foremost, putting your own love, gratitude, time and energy into making foods at home will automatically raise the vibration of the foods/meal. This will also help to balance your sacral and heart chakras. Putting your love into the food you prepare will literally raise the vibrational frequency as love is the highest vibration out there!

  • You are what you eat and what your food eats. Using organic, GMO free, free/pasture raised, wild caught, minimally processed ingredients lead to an overall higher vibrational frequency. Basically, eating organic provides us extra energy currency!

  • This dish is rich in protein, which is grounding and protective. It also supports the root chakra.

  • Contains calcium, a key root chakra nutrient.

  • Contains zinc, which is needed for thousands of chemical reactions in your body involving protein, so it is also supportive to the root chakra.

  • Contains red colored foods. Red vibrates at about the same frequency as the root chakra. So, eating red foods helps to maintain the proper root chakra frequency.

  • Contains yellow/tan/golden colored foods, which help raise the body’s frequency to that of the solar plexus, helping to balance it.

  • Contains green colored foods, which support and balance the heart chakra.

Sausage Zucchini Boats

(gluten free & primal)

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 40 minutes Yield: 4-5

Ingredients:

  • ~ 2 lbs. zucchini 

  • 1 lb. ground pork  

  • 1 jar (or 25 oz.) marinara sauce, no sugar added/GF

  • 5-7 oz. goat cheese, soft

  • 1 onion, chopped 

  • 1 tbsp. avocado oil

  • ½ tbsp. garlic, chopped

  • garlic powder/granules, to taste

  • fresh cracked pepper, to taste

  • fresh basil, torn (optional)


How to Create this Recipe:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 ° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Wash & trim the ends off of the zucchini. Cut the zucchini in half, down the length of it. Then, begin to hollow out the halves of the zucchini by scrapping the seeds out with a small, but strong spoon. Keep the zucchini guts, placing them off to the side for now. Once you’ve hollowed all of the zucchini halves out, transfer them to the baking sheet & sprinkle the halves with pepper.

  3. Then, spread or crumble the goat cheese onto the halves & spoon the marinara sauce over the halves. Add any remaining goat cheese on top of the marinara. Set aside.

  4. In a large skillet/pan, over medium-high heat, add the avocado oil, the chopped onion, zucchini guts, & the garlic. Cook until onions become translucent, about 3-5 minutes.

  5. Then, add the ground pork to the skillet, seasoning it with cracked pepper & garlic powder/granules. Cook the meat just until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes.

  6. Once the meat/onion mixture is cooked through, distribute the mixture on top of the marinara on the halves. Sprinkle the top with fresh cracked pepper and garlic granules.

  7. Place into oven for 10-20 minutes. The zucchini boats are done when the meat is browned, & the marinara is bubbling.

  8. Garnish with fresh torn basil & enjoy!!


* NOTES:

  • These zucchini boats hold up very well & are perfect for meal prepping.

  • I suggest reheating this dish the same way you cooked it, in the oven for about 10 minutes at 400 ° F.
