I’m so happy to be back in action. I was absolutely out of commission for a few weeks, as I was in Los Angeles and Seattle for about a week and was recovering and taking a stay-cation when I got home (for another week or so.)

That’s just how I roll.

After I vaca, I need to stay, okay?

However, there is NO better way for me to celebrate being back home than making this delicious Whole30 Zucchini Noodle Bolognese recipe. In fact, I’ve made a very similar recipe before… maybe you’ve seen it:

WHOLE30 LUNCHES & DINNERS!

The most difficult part of a Whole30? In my opinion, it’s finding a versatile enough meal plan that is full of dishes that can be eaten for both lunch and dinner.

I like switching things up, and there is no way I’m eating the same recipe all throughout the day.

This Whole30 Zucchini Noodle Bolognese recipe is absolutely incredible because it freezes so dang well.

There’s nothing more convenient than being able to pull out a delicious, home cooked recipe from your freezer and having the quality and taste unharmed after having it sit in there frozen.

This is that recipe. I can assure you that you’ll want to keep batch cooking this recipe over and over again because of that!

*Not to toot my own horn or anything, but when Rachel Mansfield makes this Bolognese recipe 3 times during her husband’s Whole30, you start to feel accomplished.*

I’ve teamed up with Bonafide Provisions to bring you this recipe. I’ve made it before and utilized white wine, but after replacing the white wine with their bone broth, there is absolutely no looking back.

Aside from creating this delicious Best Whole30 Bolognese recipe this week, I’ve been spending a crap ton of time with my husband.

He just got back from a 10-day trip to the motherland *Vietnam* and it’s absolutely insane how much I missed him.

Maybe not as much insane as typical. You see, I miss him every day. He goes to work, and I spend most of the day counting down the hours until he gets home.

I’m going to move on now, but it’s important to me to share how wonderful he is. Okay, okay… I’m moving on.

Have you guys stumbled across my meal plans yet? I’ve been working on churning out another one for April, so begin to get real, real excited OK?

BAKED GOODS and WHOLE30?

I’ve had a generous amount of emails and messages coming my way lately. People have been asking me why is it that I choose to create both Whole30 recipes and paleo baked goods.

It’s almost as if I’m contradicting myself by promoting both of these things, right? Not in my eyes. Let me tell you why…

When I first started my blog, I intentionally decided to keep the word “paleo” out of the blog name. I knew that I didn’t want “paleo” to define who I was, and I certainly didn’t want to put myself in a box.

Sure, I eat paleo 90% of the time, but I also don’t have a problem with eating a few donuts from Sidecar in one sitting or adding rice and gluten free oats to my diet because… I want to.

They don’t cause any issues for me, and I’m a very active person. I feel like I’m at my optimal performance levels when I eat the way I do, which is why I choose to sometimes participate in Whole30 recipes, while at other times, I indulge.

Healthy Whole30 recipes. Easy Whole30 recipes.

I understand that not everyone has this luxury. Believe me, there are certain things I should absolutely never consume that do lead to topical inflammation and funky digestive phenomenon.

However, I prefer to provide you with (both) incredibly tasty and nutrient dense Whole30 recipes, as well as (better for you) gluten, grain free and refined sugar free baked goods.

That’s my jam, and I hope you’re into it!

Or eat it all up. Right now. I dare you.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Spiralize the zucchinis first. I like to use the "C" blade on my Inspiralizer. Feel free to spiralize it as thick or as thin as you'd like! Add the spiralized zucchini to a large colander and place it over the sink. Add the kosher salt and massage it well into the zucchini. Let it sit for about 20 minutes, as this process will release a lot of moisture. Rinse the zucchini well with cold water and let it drain for another 10-15 minutes. Pat it as dry as you can with a kitchen towel and set aside.
  2. Cook the bacon cubes in a large cooking pot on medium-high heat until crunchy. Transfer the bacon to a paper-lined plate for later use.
  3. Cook the onion, celery and carrots until the onions appear translucent. Add in the garlic cloves and cook for another minute or so, until fragrant.
  4. Add in the beef and cook until brown. Add in the coconut milk, bone broth, tomato paste and cooked bacon cubes. Let it simmer for 7-10 minutes, until everything is well combined and appears thick.
  5. Stir in the garlic powder, sea salt and black pepper, to taste.
  6. Stir in the zucchini noodles and let everything cook together for 4-5 minutes. Serve warm.

    This looks like a great bolognese and I’m glad to know it freezes well! My big complaint is how much cooking I have to do with Whole 30 and this way I could make a double batch and have a few easier nights!

      ABSOLUTELY. That’s why I love incorporating this recipe into my rotation when I’m Whole30ing… or even when I’m not. Please let me know what you think if you do make it!

      Hi there, it is for about one serving! 🙂 Is that helpful?

      You’re so sweet! It is one of my favorite recipes, too!! Can you do me a huge favor and rate it using the star system? That helps me out a TON. Thanks, lovely! 🙂

        Sure! How do I do that ? I’m not good at that kinda stuff hahah

          April 26, 2017 at 11:10 am

          SO funny. When you scroll down to the bottom and look at the actual recipe, under INFO, you will see an available 5 stars for rating. You just click on how many you give it. Does that make sense?

          1. Ashley Brundage

            April 26, 2017 at 3:58 pm

            Ok I think I did it! I clicked all 5 stars and it says “you-5” I absolutely give this dish 5 stars and above!! It was so good!! Can you see the 5 stars now? I wana make sure I did it right 🙂 you certainly deserve it!!

    I just got finished making this and all I can say is AMAZING! Oh my goodness this was so delicious! Only thing I did different was saute the zucchini for two minutes in glee and poured the sauce over it. This is a definitely keeper! Thank you so for posting!

      HI! You are absolutely welcome. I’m SO happy to hear that you enjoyed the dish and put your own spin on it. Can you do me a huge favor? If you scroll down to the bottom where the recipe is, you can choose how many stars you give it. That helps me out immensely! 🙂 <3
