Raw Zucchini “Pasta”

Dish Type: Pasta, Risotto and Polenta


  • 2 large Zucchini
  • 1 cup Sun-Dried Tomatoes
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1 cup Coarsely Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 cup Water
  • ½ cup Grated Cucumber
  • 3 Tbsp Hemp Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp Rosemary
  • ¼ tsp Thyme
  • Sea Salt, to taste


Soak the sundried tomatoes for 20 minutes in the water. While they’re soaking, shave the zucchini with a vegetable peeler to make “noodles”. Once the sun-dried tomatoes have soaked, place them, along with the remaining ingredients (NOT the zucchini) in a food processor. Process until desired consistency is reached.

Everything that Might Be Missing from Your Plant-Based Diet (and Nothing Else!)

complementI believe that plant-based is the healthiest way you can eat -- both for how you feel and perform in the short term, and for long-term health. But there are a few nutrients that are hard to get from plants, and I didn't want to take a whole multivitamin with so much extra that I'm already getting from my food. That's why I created Complement Plus, the perfect nutrient formula for plant-based athletes.

Complement Plus brings together, in one place, the essential nutrients that are missing from a reasonably diverse, whole food plant-based diet:
  • B12
  • D3
  • DHA/EPA Omega-3s
  • K2
  • Minerals like zinc, iodine, and selenium
It's everything that might be missing from your plant-based diet, with nothing extra.
