Raw Zucchini Pasta Alfredo
Need a wholesome scrum-diddly-umptious good-ass vibe-ing recipe that nourishes you so well + makes you feel amazing? Look no further!
There is some seriously raised vibes after finishing a meal that is completely fresh, raw and delish!
Laughter is usually involved, or at least highly recommended.
I’ve found that when I bump up my raw quota, I remain fuller for longer (thanks to the high fiber & water content), cravings for sugar subside, my skin starts glowing and energy levels SOAR.
Raw food is amazing and so jam-packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that aren’t normally present in a standard diet.
This recipe is just one variation of our favourite and is such a clever gluten-free grain-free alternative that can be used in Italian style dishes or to replace noodles in asian cooking.
Ah, the miracle of zucchinis + a spiralizer. (Best gadget ever!) I don’t think any further introduction is required here.
(I’m not affiliated with this brand by the way, just highly recommend it.)
Feel free to experiment with your own favourite pesto, or marinara sauce. Ours is a rich cashew herb alfredo that is just so creamy, it’ll have your tastebuds bursting with flavour!
