zucchini zoodle, coconut & orange dressing

I love zucchini noodles, it’s versatile and fresh, and by playing around with the sauce it never gets boring. One my favourite of the moment is a mix of coconut and pomegrenate: I scrap some fresh coconut, then blend it with an orange, fresh ginger, flaxseed and some garlic. The pomegrenate gives this dish a sweet flavour and the olives add a sour taste, the result is very tasty.

Easy Rawnola

 

 

 

I love Rawnola! It is easy to make and full of nutrients, you can add some vegetal milk, coconut yogurt or even sprinkle it on your salads.

Cashews and walnuts are a good source of potassium, iron and zinc. My favourites are almonds, I used to think that they were part the nut family when actually they are seeds from the almond’s fruits.  Almonds contains : Biotin, vitamin E, vitamin B12, manganese, magnesium,fibre. 

Adding a handful of almonds in your daily routine can boost energy, strengthen the immune system, improve skin health, reduce heart disease and help loosing weight. I think of almonds as a magic seed.

Pumpkin and sunflower seeds are a very good source of protein, rich in iron, vitamin E, magnesium and omega 3. 

Fennel seeds are rich in fibre, they are a concentrate source of minerals, iron, calcium, potassium and manganese. 

Amaranth is one of my precious little seed: gluten free, it contains calcium, potassium and iron. It is also a very good source of protein and is a very versatile so can be used in many different ways.  

I am sharing my recipe for Rawnola but you can adapt it depending on what you have in your cupboard.
