Healthy Eating –

Another fantastic way recipe to keep up your healthy eatingThe zucchini boats are then stuffed with ground beef sauce and topped with mozzarella cheese and baked until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is cooked through. They store very well in the fridge or freezer and make a great take to work lunch too.

I used mozzarella cheese and sprinkled some sesame on top of it. Top with diced tomatoes, avocado, and/or cilantro and eat it with a fresh green salad. The best way to make it beyond healthy and delicious, create an avocado dressing.
