Raw Garlic Zucchini Noodles for Two

By Megan

Garlic Zucchini Noodles Recipe Urban Remedy

Perhaps garlic isn’t what comes to mind for Valentine’s Day… but it should.

Garlic is known to be the third most powerful aphrodisiac in the world.

This is due to its noticeable warming effect on the body, creating a feeling of comfort and desire! Perfect for a romantic meal for two or for a chilly night in February watching rom coms while practicing your favorite yoga pose.

The nutritional density of most noodles is best summed up as: high calorie, low benefit.

This recipe offers a great alternative to the typical noodle dilemma. Raw zucchini noodles give you the pleasure of eating “noodles” that are loaded with nutrients and will benefit your body in ways those conventional noodles just can’t come close to offering. (Click here for a zucchini spiralizing tutorial.)

If you’re short on time and need to stock some yummy and convenient healthy meals that are ready to go when you are, try an Urban Remedy meal. We have two zucchini noodle options in our lunch and dinner offerings.

Here is how to make the easy, delicious and so nutritious dish for yourself!
