What’s for dinner? Zucchini noodles

Eat your greens this July! Try zucchini – instead of wheat noodles for 80 per cent fewer carbohydrates, or grilled as a healthy side at your next BBQ. Rapini (broccoli raab) is also in season – rich in vitamin A and C, calcium and potassium, it’s known to help with blood pressure control. It’s easy to add some sweetness to your summer meals with an extra boost of vitamin A from local peaches and apricots, integral for both new cell growth and vision. Right now though? We’ve got your dinner covered with this amazing noodle dish – bon appetite!
