Zucchini Pasta
 
I'm obsessed with my new Spiralizer! This might just be my favorite kitchen appliance! I recently discovered how ridiculously easy it is to make Zucchini pasta. Not to mention how satisfying zucchini noodles can be. If you are going grain free but miss your pasta then you will definitely want to get yourself a Spiralizer. Plus if you are pressed for time It literally takes 5 minutes at the most to put this dish together. Feel free to make your own modifications with the sauce. I've also made this with some vegan pesto, which taste amazing. Throw in some extra veggies, chicken, or nuts to make it a more substantial dish.

Notes
Zucchini is a great vegetable to eat when you are trying to lose weight as it is very low in calories. More importantly it is packed with vitamin C, vitamin A, and other phytonutrients. It also helps support a healthy cardiovascular system and lower blood pressure.


In my opinion Avocado’s might just be one of the healthiest foods you can eat. One avocado gives you an ample serving of fiber, protein, and fat. In particular they contain all of your good healthy fats that help lower the bad cholesterol in your body. And they also contain high levels of nutrients such as Folate and Lutein, which helps to support eye health. Avocados lower blood pressure, and reduce the risk of stroke. They bring more oxygen and blood flow to the brain, improving cognitive function. The fiber content promotes healthy digestion. They are known for a wide variety of anti-inflammatory benefits due to its high nutrient content. This makes it a great immune booster and cancer fighter. Overall one of the best foods you can eat, hands down!
