Pasta-Free Pasta

Would you like to try an alternative to regular pasta?

Try zoodles.

If you are familiar with the  “zoodles”  terminology you already know what to expect in this post. 
If you`re not, it simply means spiralized zucchini.
You need a spiralizer, or a basic spiral slicer.
For the “pasta” you need 2-3 big zucchini.
The dressing I recommend should consist of healthy fats like avocado or hemp seeds, spices (oregano, cumin and black pepper), cherry tomatoes and lemon/lime juice (or apple cider vinegar).
Another way to do is to whisk two tablespoons of tahini with lemon juice, 1ts apple cider vinegar vinegar and some water until it gets creamy. I
Those of my favorite dressings:
  • Half to a medium avocado, basil, one medium orange, mango or two/three small tangerines, cup of cherry tomatoes, oregano, lime juice, paprika (or chili flakes), a pinch of Himalayan salt.
  • A tablespoon of tahini  (or two tablespoons of hemp seeds), few celery sticks, piece of ginger, two teaspoons of  Bregg’s aminos, lemon juice, dash of turmeric or curry powder, oregano, onion flakes., 2 tbs of nutritional yeast
  • Two tablespoons of pumpkin seeds (or hemp seeds; or a half-half of the both), one small orange, two medjool dates, lemon juice, cumin, dill, basil.
Note:
By no means am I saying that pasta is unhealthy; just the opposite – complex carbohydrates are a great fuel for your body (especially if you are working out a lot or staying very active during the day).
I personally enjoy lighter meals that don’t drain me down or make me feel sluggish, and that`s why I prefer to eat gluten-free.
If you are looking for a low-carbish, yet delicious and filling dinner/lunch, zucchini noodles are for you!
Hope you enjoy those recipes and please remember that you can always adapt the listed ingredients to your taste and cupboard availability. 
Stay healthy!:)
