Grab a spiralizer and zucchini and you are almost done making this dish already! This recipe is “simple, easy, and nutritious.” According to the The Clean Eating Chick  zucchini can help prevent cancer. Eleni’s mother passed away from cancer and she felt her mom wasn’t shown proper nutrition by her doctors. The level of misinformation out there inspired The Clean Eating Chick to help inform others and show them what to eat for overall health!

To top it Eleni says zucchini is great for your skin because it has a high water content. If you’re wondering how The Clean Eating Chick I knows so much about nutrition and diet she actually studied at the Institute of Integrated Nutrition, which is an online school for holistic health. The Clean Eating Chick explains that avocados are great for your hair, skin, and nails. She also shares that pink salt is better than white salt because it aids in detoxification. Eleni sure has a plethora of knowledge!
