Gluten-Free Primal Zucchini Pasta

The common misconception in the “diet” world is that healthy is boring; and, if it’s not boring, cooking healthy definitely takes up most of your time.

Given I’ve been following a primal diet based off the Dolce Diet principles for several years now, I can say with utter honesty that this is completely false.

Believe it or not, the basis of a great diet that’s going to get and keep you shredded quickly (lower carb, fresh produce, clean proteins, and healthy fats) is super easy to stick to and takes minimal effort with just a few ingredient swaps.

Take, for instance, pasta: toss out that processed, high-carb white pasta, replace it with zucchini “noodles,” and you have a super quick base for a complete pasta dish that’s gluten-free, dairy-free, and filled with nourishing superfoods … like the one below. 

Check it.

 

Gluten-Free Primal Zucchini Pasta

This gluten-free pasta recipe has a million pros and no cons. It’s low in carbs, dairy-free, high in protein and healthy fats as well as antioxidants to help with recovery, and also takes minimal ingredients and time to prep. After a long day, this is crucial since most of us typically want a high-quality meal prepped at home … but also have minimal energy to be in the kitchen for hours.

Here we’re using no more than 5 ingredients, one of them being a Primal Kitchen pasta sauce for an even quicker sauce option. You can choose your custom flavor as well if you have a preference. Also, if you’ve never used avocado oil, I highly recommend giving it a try as it’s high in vitamin E and an overload of healthy fats. Plus, unlike other oils, it stands high heat cooking extremely well without degrading, which is important to avoid damaging our cells and preventing aging.
