Macadamia Nut ‘Cheesy’ Zucchini Boats

July 19, 2016

I love anything that has the word ‘Cheese’ in it… especially when it’s a fully raw dish. Not only am I fueling my body with amazing nutrients but I am also feeding my cravings for some comfort food ( insert cheese here) but it’s all healthy and fully raw! Win-Win

Macadamia Nuts are so delicious and are ridiculously good for you. Take a look at some of the health benefits these crazy nuts have:

  • A rich source of Vitamin A, iron, protein,  thiamin, riboflavin, niacin and folates.
  • Macadamia Nuts contain moderate amounts of zinc, copper, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium.
  • Full of  antioxidants like polyphenols, Amino acids, flavones and selenium, which are great to achieve that glowing skin we all love and crave.
  • Aids in weight loss: People usually avoid eating macadamia thinking that it’s loaded with fats and cholesterol. However, the fat in macadamia is monounsaturated fats which helps promote weight loss. So eat up hotties!

This recipe is insanely easy… I am talking about only five minutes from prep to blend to food in mouth. YES, that easy. So give this yummy ‘Cheesy’ recipe a try the next time you have a snack attack or to complement any entrée- heck this could even be your main dish!
