Raw versus Cooked Foods

Since cooking destroys important enzymes that your body needs to digesting and assimilating foods, the more raw vegetables and fruits you eat, the more enzymes and nutrients your body will take in.

One fun way to enjoy raw zucchini is by turning it into “noodles” with a spiralizer. Use the spiralizer to make “noodles” out of other veggies too and serve with your favorite pasta sauces and curb the carbs. Enjoy these zucchini spirals in this recipe for Creamy “Zucchini-Noodle” Salad, another recipe idea from the upcoming “Candida Cure Cookbook”, due out in March, 2016.

Creamy Zucchini-Noodle Salad


Creamy Zucchini Noodle Salad

2 servings

Ingredients:

2          large zucchini, spiralized or grated

½         cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half

¼         cup sliced black olives

4          scallions, white and green parts thinly sliced

¼         cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, sliced (optional)

¼         cup fresh basil leaves, chiffonade cut

 

Dressing Ingredients:

Juice of 1 lemon

¼–½   cup water

2          tablespoons Raw Coconut Aminos

½         cup raw sesame seeds

¾         cup raw hempseeds

3–4     cloves garlic

1          teaspoon smoked paprika

½         teaspoon sea salt

¼         teaspoon black pepper

¼         teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

 

Directions:

 

Use a spiralizer to make zucchini “noodles.” Cut the noodles if they are too long. If you don’t have a spiralizer, grate the zucchini into long, thin strips. Place in a large mixing bowl with sliced cherry tomatoes, olives, scallions, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil.

To prepare the dressing, place all of the ingredients in a blender, adding the liquids first. Start with ¼ cup of water and add more if the dressing is too thick. Add the seeds, garlic, and spices. Starting on low speed and slowly increasing to high, blend until smooth and creamy. If necessary, scrape down the sides occasionally and add more water. Taste for seasoning.

Pour dressing over the zucchini noodle mixture, and stir gently until all the vegetables are evenly coated.
