1. Make the avocado sauce by putting the avocado, lemon juice, basil, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Add more oil if you want it thinner. Alternatively, you can slowly add a little bit of filtered water until reaches desired consistency.
  2. Adjust to taste (try adding more salt and pepper first, then garlic and go from there)
  3. Make the zoodles using a spiralizer.
  4. To cook the noodles, cook them in a fry pan with some coconut oil, for about 2-3 minutes (don’t overcook them or they’ll get soggy). OR you can microwave them for 1-2 minutes (I do this when I just can’t be bothered making another mess haha)
  5. Half the zoodles and top with sauce. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese or feta and season with salt and pepper

Avocados contain:

  • Healthy monounsaturated fats shown to reverse insulin resistance and regular blood sugar levels
  • Twice the amount of potassium as bananas
  • more soluble fibre than most foods and help stabilise blood sugar levels, facilitate proper bowel regularity and maintain proper weight control
  • more protein and less sugar than any fruit, which helps build muscle and burn fat
  • antioxidant phytochemicals prevent oxidative damage that have the power to change DNA and result in cell mutations
  • folate which helps prevent birth defects and neural tube defects, and may prevent strokes
  • anti-inflammatory compounds like phytonutrients which is key to reducing the risk of inflammatory and degenerative disorders that can affect every part of the body
