The Curried Courgette ‘Spaghetti’

When I eat on my own, I can’t be bothered preparing an elaborated meal. I made this dish with three ingredients and in less than 10 minutes, it’s super easy and fun to eat! Needless to say that it’s also very much healthy and clean.

Ingredients (for one)

  • Courgette, 1/2
  • Cherry tomatoes, a big handful
  • Coriander, a handful
  • Curry powder, 1 teaspoon
  • Salt and pepper

Procedure

Wash the courgette and tomatoes. Use a spiraliser to make the courgette spaghetti or simply cut it in long stripes. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Chop the coriander.

Heat a little olive oil in a pan and add the spaghetti, cook until tender. In another pan, cook the cherry tomatoes until tender as well. Add the curry powder, salt and pepper.

Serve warm, sprinkle with the coriander. You can add some parmesan cheese if you fancy it!

Tadaaaaaaa!

eat-real-foodClean eating has become my ‘food philosophy’; it has totally changed my relationship with food.

Clean eating is not about dieting or counting calories, there is no guilt and no pressure. It’s all about enjoying real foods in their most simple form;  vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes. It’s a rainbow of colours and flavours on your plate every day! Needless to say that it provides great sources of vitamins, nutrients, healthy fats and proteins (yes, that too!). It’s a very healthy and happy way of eating; you don’t feed your body, you nourish it with the best that nature has to offer!

Clean eating bans all kinds of naughty refined foods such as white flour, refined sugar and oil. Last but not least, and it might not please the bacon-eaters, but it also limits the consumption of meat (chicken and fish included), eggs (Omega-3 or/and organic are fine though), and dairy products.
