This Zucchini pasta is DELICIOUS!
If you want to start replacing dairy with healthier and even raw food, try this meal. Its a healthy dinner to serve for your family, or just for yourself.
Zucchini as the pasta itself is a great nutritional option. Zucchini is low on calories and contains no cholesterol or saturated fats. It also is a good source of potassium; one medium sized zucchini provides 500 mg of potassium, which is necessary for each heart beat to fire off. The skin of a zucchini contains a good amount of fiber, which helps to clean you out. Oh, and they also contain antioxidants and protein!
You can’t go wrong eliminating gluten pasta for this delicious raw alternative;)
