Zucchini Carbonara for Dinner

How does zucchini carbonara sound for dinner??  Sounds like it would be an amazing idea!

Seriously zucchini spaghetti is such a great alternative to pasta.  It cuts out all the bad carbohydrates and leaves you with a full belly and a smile from ear to ear knowing that you just ate something that tastes as good as it is for your body.

Why Zucchini - well its a great source of potassium, rich in vitamin A and contains minerals like iron, manganese and zinc.  Also it is one of the very low calorie vegetables, providing only 17 calories per 100g.  Try to leave the peel on as it is a great source of dietary fibre.


Sundried Tomatoes
Goats Cheese
Garlic (crushed)
Salt and Pepper
Snow Pea Sprouts
Coconut Oil (or your cooking oil of choice)

(You can include all your favourite veggies, mix and match as much as you like)

(Try to use organic ingredients where possible)


- Start by heating a little oil in the pan.  Add in the garlic and salt and pepper heat for around 2-3 mins
- Add in the zucchini, cook on its own for around 2 mins or until it starts to soften
- Throw in the goats cheers, sundered tomatoes and snow pea sprouts
- In a bowl whisk the egg
- Slide all the food over to one side of the fry pan and pour in the whisked egg (as image above).  Allow the egg to cook through slightly before stirring everything together.  The egg gives the meal that creamy texture.
- Serve and enjoy!!

Why not give this healthy meal a try tomorrow evening.  Let me know how it goes for you.
