Why eat raw food?
If you think raw milk is healthier than pasteurized, you’ve considered the value of bacteria and enzymes for digestion. Pasteurized milk may have the same nutrients as raw milk, but there is evidence that those nutrients can’t be digested because the enzymes that facilitate digestion have been destroyed by heat. So, what if that’s true of other foods? If it is, we can all benefit by eating more raw foods.
(I have been working on this for awhile- it’s a combination of several different recipes.)
Spiralizer for making the noodles*
2 red peppers
6 large tomatoes
8 oz sun-dried tomatoes in oil
2 cups walnuts (Note: If you want to make meatballs with the walnuts, here’s a good recipe – click here)
1/2 tsp sea salt (optional)
You can also add garlic, basil and oregano
3 medium zucchinis
Grated Parmigiano Reggiano which is made from raw milk
Chop the walnuts in the processor until the pieces are the size of rice.
Remove from processor and set aside.
Cut up the peppers and the tomatoes.
Place in the food processor with the sun-dried tomatoes and the oil they came in.
Process until smooth.
Pour into a bowl and add the chopped walnuts.
Cut the ends off the zucchini and peel the skin if you want (not necessary).
Put in the spiralizer.
It’s best to keep the noodles and the sauce separate until you are ready to eat your spaghetti. (The noodles will give off moisture and you can dry them before serving.)
If you want to serve warm, heat to 115F and it will still have the benefits of raw food.
There are many kinds, ranging from $7 and up at Amazon:
Mine (shown above) is 10 years old, but the most similar model would be a Cuisinart – click here
This one comes highly recommended and it is less than $30 – click here
