Functional Foods Highlight

This dish is a lighter and cleaner version of a classic favorite. It's super flavorful but won't leave you feeling heavy. You'll get more than half of your daily requirement of vitamin C from the zucchini and lemon juice, as well as gut-supportive benefits thanks to this dish's fiber content and garlic (yay prebiotics) so enjoy this very yummy and very healthy meal!

From the Chef:

No spiralizer, no problem! You can always cut the zucchini in half or thirds horizontally and then cut it again lengthwise into strips (like match sticks.) Think of it as more of a Penne type noodle then a Spaghetti 🙂

 

From the Doc:

This is such a well-balanced meal. It contains fat (olive oil and Ghee), fiber (zucchini) and protein (shrimp)! It will keep you full and satiated while boosting your immune system and supporting gut and cardiovascular health.
