Raw Vegan Zucchini Noodle Bowl

This is a great summer staple, just for a fresh filling, nutrient dense, low calorie dish! After going gluten-free, and being a serious lover of bread and noodles, this dish solves so many cravings for pasta. As well as other alternatives like Barilla Proteins Pastas they are made of grains like lentils, edamame, chickpeas, etc. I love the new textures and how filling they are!

Trying to fuel Anthony and myself with the healthier foods and cleaner foods is a goal for the year. Seeing how we can switch and still satisfy cravings of sweets, pastas, fatty or fried foods. There have already been so many changes in how we feel for our minds and bodies. How we can think, move and motivate easier. Definitely think it is important to fuel yourself and your family with clean, good for them foods. I truly believe that it would bring in things you wouldn’t begin to think about to your family. I am no nutritionist or dietitian, I can only speak from personal experience.

To the food we’ve all been drooling about! I meant dreaming about! This is a simple dish to make out of again a handful of veggies, some sun dried tomatoes and olive oil. You can achieve all aspects of a healthy diet in this meal easily as well. Getting in enough healthy fats when you go vegan or simply dairy free can be difficult. I find that avocados, olive oil, and nuts can help you attain any of these goals! Protein is kind of easy with this meal as well, all of the veggies and the nuts in the meal will culminate into a healthy amount for each meal. I recently found out that there are 29 G of protein in a cup of sunflower seeds, 4 G of protein in an average avocado and (I tend to use a medium zucchini per bowl) 3 more grams of protein in a medium zucchini!

Now let’s get to the food! I would recommend adding the seeds, we put them on before the sauce thinking it was thinner…we were wrong. Will update the photos when we inevitably make the dish again in the next couple of weeks.

Ingredients

  • 1 Medium Zucchini
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1/4 C Kale
  • 1/4 C Spinach
  • 1/4 C Red Cabbage
  • 1 Whole Carrot
  • 3 Tbsp Sun Dried Tomato In Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Hemp Seeds
  • 1/4 C Sunflower Seeds
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp White Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

  • Wash all the veggies, and it’ll be best if you have a mandolin, spiralizer, cheese grater, something. If you don’t a tip for this is if you only have your hands and a few really good knives; take a straight edge knife preferably a chef’s knife and cut the zucchini in half then cut that horizontally into thirds and then make your thin strips vertically to the zucchini. Then, NOODLES!
  • With the carrots, cut them into 1/4 in rounds. The spinach, kale and red cabbage slice into 1/2 inch pieces.
  • The sun dried tomatoes, place in a bowl and mix with oil, vinegar and salt and pepper to taste mix then, your ready to throw everything into the bowl.
  • Place noodles then, top with kale, spinach, red cabbage, and carrots. Next is the sauce and nuts and finally slice up that yummy avocado to add in a creamy feeling to this amazing dish!

If you are looking for more to add to the dish I would highly recommend some red onion, mushrooms, bell peppers, yellow squash noodles as well would be great additions!

If you don’t have sun dried tomatoes I would recommend; doubling the oil, diced roma or garden tomatoes, some minced garlic and stir in a bowl as stated before.

Berry Banana Smoothie Bowl

This is a great staple for vegan breakfasts and the base for a lot of variations as I try more, letting you know which ones are good for some variety and which ones are the actual bees-knees.

I love how refreshing these are in the morning and the perfect set up for one is a good sweaty gritty workout, cold shower, and then a bowl of just pure nutrients and whole earthy goodness ( I don’t think I could sound more like a hippie now if I tried).

This is also great if you thought your bananas would be great to last the week and they are ripening quickly due to van heat. So you know, everyone should have a reason for doing the things they do. They should have intention in moving forward and bringing your culture and mentalities to where they need to be for the human race to thrive together not just survive together.

If that is through minimizing your food waste and influencing your family and the generations they will create to do the same and for those generations to teach their own and others more to build a better future for all of us.

Anyways, just banana bowls saving the planet, man.

The base for Berry Banana Smoothie Bowls is always easy, to have them be chilled and refreshing try to freeze or purchase flash frozen fruits to replace ice that will thin out the bowl, fresh and frozen bananas and then some raw almond or cashew milk will make them liter on the calories as well as fresher.

Cook Time

Ingredients

  • 1 C Frozen Banana
  • 1 C Frozen Mixed Berries
  • 1/2 C Milk of Choice
  • 2 Tbsp Almond Butter

Instructions

Place in blender, go for it! If you want a smooth consistency go for about 20 seconds on high. Want a bit of texture to it pulse at your own desire. Then you’re done son! Enjoy that refreshing mouth watering, nutrient rich, guilt free bright breakfast.

For Variety

In need of a satisfying DESSERT! You heard that right, dessert out of breakfast! Use coconut milk lite or regular the healthy fats will make the dish extra creamy, also the use of raw cacao nibs would be the perfect bitter-sweet taste to this amazing bowl.

Wanting more protein? Top with more nut butters, raw nuts of any and all kinds, and/or hemp seeds. Pea protein powder in the mix would also do for extra dose of yummy goodness in anyone’s bowl!

If you’re like me and almost always have a sweet tooth, put 2 Tbsps of Date Paste into the mix and dried cranberries on top! Sure to satisfy anyone sweet tooth.

General topping I always go for; shredded raw unsweetened coconut, almonds and walnuts, almond or peanut butter, hemp seeds, fresh strawberries and bananas!

Go enjoy and explore the flavor possibilities! Some one PLEASE try this recipe with fresh apricots and tell me how it turns out I just can’t wait to hear the results!
