I love the feeling that I have after enjoying a raw food meal. A kick of energy from a meal packed with live nutrients – which leaves me wonderfully vibrant, satisfied and energized for hours!
The satisfaction that you get from a raw food meal is quite a different feeling than you get after eating a typical lunch. A typical meat-based meal will often leave you feeling tired and heavy afterwards – ready for a nap. But the last thing you think about after a raw food meal, is taking a nap 🙂
Zucchini Fettuccine served w/ fresh tomato sauce and caper berries
This dish is perfect on it’s own, but it fits wonderfully well with a piece of grilled salmon.
Yesterday, we had it for lunch, with slices of avocado and fresh crispy baby spinach.
It is simple and delicious, refreshing and so easy to make. All you need is:
4 Ripe tomatoes
1/2 red pepper
1 clove of garlic
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
A bunch of baby spinach
First you make the sauce – you chop the tomatoes, peel the garlic, cut the pepper in half and remove the seeds.
Put it in the blender, squeeze the 1/2 lemon, add sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Blend into a deliciously fresh tomato sauce.
You make the zucchini fettuccine by using a potato peeler and length wise cutting thin strips like this…
Serve it with leaves of crispy baby spinach some avocado, drizzled with plenty of fresh tomato sauce, leaves of Italian parsley and caper berries and a glass of fresh cool water
