Pesto “Zoodles” with Brussel Sprouts

Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Pesto “Zoodles” with Brussel Sprouts. Where are my veggies?


3 cups basil leaves
2 tablespoons pine nuts
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups trimmed Brussels sprouts
3 medium turnips, peeled and spiralized into linguine
Salt and pepper to taste


Combine the basil, pine nuts, 1/4 cup of the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor, and pulse until smooth.

Halve, and then thinly slice the Brussels sprouts into shreds.

Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the turnip noodles and Brussels sprouts. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 3–5 minutes, or until the turnip noodles are al dente, uncovering and tossing occasionally. Transfer to a large bowl. Pour the pesto on top, and toss to combine thoroughly. Serve warm.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
