Zucchini Noodles with Cilantro Lime Prawns

I don’t know about you guys, but I LOVE food. One of my favourite things I hear from people starting my 28-day program is how surprised they are that eating health can be SO DELICIOUS and SO EASY. 

Because of all the incredible reviews I've been getting on the recipes in the program, I decided to share one of my favourite delicious, nutritious, and. easy recipes. 

Zucchini noodles are a go-to dinner for me when I just don't feel like thinking up something new to eat. I know they will taste good and be good for my body, plus they are so quick for when you just don't want to spend too long in the kitchen.
