Fresh and Raw Zucchini Noodle Salad

Zucchini noodles, zoodles, zucchini spaghetti or, as a friend calls them, ‘Zpagetti’ (lol) are perfect if you follow a grain-free diet … or not!

Zucchini noodle salad 2Bursting with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, the Zucchini noodle makes a super nutritious alternative to high-carb pasta.

This recipe is one of many I have developed for my Break Through! Signature Cleanse Program, which focuses on delicious, satiating meals that encourage optimum health and weight.

The aim is to create meals that not only taste good and are healthy, but leave you satisfied.

This is the way to creating sustainable results with your health and weight goals, transcending the start-stop yo-yo of ‘dieting’.

Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.

Here are some of the ingredients you’ll need:

Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
Chilli flakes

Guess what happened as I was making zucchini noodles………

Putting this in perspective, Miss then 8 pictured here is what I call a zucchini-sceptic.

However, having made the zucchini noodles with me and noting how colourful and vibrant they looked, she took the plunge and ended up hooking in!

Perhaps it’s more the presentation of the zucchinis that won her over, or perhaps it was the mixture of tastes. Either way, we have a convert on our hands.

Just goes to show that anything can happen when you get kids into the kitchen.
