Insulin Boosting Courgette & Pesto ‘Pasta’


Delicious alternative to carb-laden pastas and ready-made pestos that taste of nothing and just make you feel bloated and heavy.  This little gem will give you lots of good fats and protein, as well as prevent you from becoming insulin resistant – the main cause of weight stagnation (and bingo wings ;-)

For 2 servings:


1 handful of basil
2 organic avocados
1/2 cup hemp hearts (shelled hemp seeds)
1/2 cup organic olive oil
Juice from half lemon
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
Cracked pepper to taste
2 courgettes made into ribbons with a potato peeler
Optional protein: organic chicken or salmon

1 tbsp mixed seeds/pine nuts lightly dry toasted to garnish

1 Add all ingredients into the blender except olive oil.
2 Pulse as best as possible then add in olive oil and blend until smooth.
3 Next add the courgette noodles into a pan and sauté on medium heat for 2-5 mins until lightly cooked. Add the pesto and top with protein of your choice.
4 Keep the extra pesto in a plastic container in the fridge with the avocado stone to prevent browning and cover with a lid.

Enjoy! x
