Whole30 Approved Zucchini Lasagna

Hi friends!

If you were following our trek through Whole30 back in October, you know this was our ABSOLUTE #1 favorite dish to make for lunch & dinner! Not only because it’s so simple and quick to fix up, but also the COCONUT taste is just irresistible! You know I love coconut anything!

I personally like making it with ground turkey better instead of ground beef because beef gets SUUUUPER oily and upsets my tummy. Definitely try both out and get a feel for it yourself though. Ground beef is super tastey and does have more flavor so I would go with that first. Then when your tummy tells you to switch it up, go for ground turkey or chicken!

I opted out of shredded cheese when we were on Whole30 but I’ve been topping it off with cheese now that I can! It still tastes amazing without though so don’t feel like you’re missing out if you can’t do dairy!

I also added in whole wheat Fussili pasta this time because I’m not on Whole 30 and want to eat some carbs today!

These photos are pre-oven since the sun is about to go down and will ruin my lighting if I take it post-oven! ;P #priorities

Please note this is pre-oven that’s why the zucchini doesn’t look cooked and wilted yet!
Whole wheat Fussili pasta makes it so much more filling but do opt out if you are on Whole 30!
