If you haven’t tried zucchini noodles, take note. In the past six months, I’ve changed my diet quite drastically. Especially living in Costa Rica for 3 months and now in Portland. I’ve been eating more raw (about 90% raw) and no more lactose (I’ve recently learned that I have a sensitivity to dairy).

If there is one thing that I love it’s zucchini, and making this tasty vegetable into noodles. It is a great alternative to grain pasta, and a great paleo substitute. Avocados are great for making sauces because they are naturally thick and creamy You can add a little heat to this dish by sprinkling in some crushed red pepper, but I prefer it nice and simple. You’ll love that it is full of flavor, simple and under 10-minutes to make, and most importantly, super healthy and nutritious.

This dish is also raw. So, no cooking involved!
