It’s that time of year when we all internally decide we only want to cook outdoors… or not cook at all.

Obviously I can’t condone not cooking. Especially if that means living off take-out for the rest of the season. However, I fully understand the desire to spend more time in the gorgeous spring weather, and less time over a hot stove.

Preparing your own meals not only satisfies a deeply rooted ancestral urge we all share. (Or at least most of us share.) It also provides a creative outlet and offers complete quality control. You should do it.

However, I have a solution to the not cooking scenario.

How about incorporating a few RAW meals into your weekly menu? Raw foods provide all sorts of healthy vitamins and minerals to your diet, cut down on prep time, and eliminate cooking all together. If only for a night or two.

One popular raw dish you should give a try is “zoodles”… AKA a zucchini noodles recipe.

By shredding zucchini with a spiralizer, you can create long raw noodle strands.

Spiralizers are inexpensive, and a fun kitchen tool to have on hand. We’ve used ours to make apple noodles for fruit salad, raw beet and sweet potato salads, and even cut potatoes for curly matchstick fries.
