This is one of our favourite mid-week lunches or dinners that is perfect when you’re running short on time. It can be made with leftover roast chicken, or freshly cooked diced meat. The pesto can be pre-made and stored in the fridge for about a week, so
it’s ready to add on the spot.
If you haven’t yet tried zucchini “noodles,” they are amazing. They are fresh and easy to make, full of nutrition and don’t contain gluten, which is high on the inflammatory list. As we explained in the ginger anti-inflammatory tonic recipe, inflammation is necessary for healing, recovery and repair, however, problems arise when the inflammatory response by the body becomes chronic or systemic. It can increase the risk of injury and illness and prevent cycling strength and performance gains.
If you don’t have a spiraliser at home, you can create a similar effect with a peeler, just make thin peels down the length of the zucchini. Carrot works well too.
