This delicious recipe is so good and pretty healthy. It is made with zucchini and carrots instead of noodles.
- 2 medium zucchini
- 2 large carrots, peeled
- 3/4 cup cashews
- 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
- 2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
- 1/2 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 1/2 tablespoon sriracha sauce (or more if you like it spicy!)
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- Juice of 1/2 lime
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Spiralize the carrots on the thinnest setting, and spiralize the zucchini on the medium setting. Set aside.
- Add the peanut butter, hoisin sauce, sriracha sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, and garlic to a skillet on medium-high heat. Stirring constantly, cook it for about 2 minutes or until the garlic has just started to cook.
- Add the cashews, zucchini, and carrots. Using tongs or two large spoons, gently toss/lift up the pan contents every 10-20 seconds or so for about 4-5 minutes until everything is lightly cooked and heated through. The zucchini will release some liquid, which will help to make a n

Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in couscous and remove from the heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Set aside. Meanwhile, combine parsley, mint, lemon juice, oil, garlic, ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. Toss chicken tenders in a medium bowl with 1 tablespoon of the parsley mixture and the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt. Place the tenders in a large nonstick skillet and cook over medium heat until cooked though, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean cutting board. Cut into bite-size pieces when cool enough to handle. Stir the remaining parsley mixture into the couscous along with tomato and cucumber. To assemble wraps, spread about ¾ cup of the couscous mixture onto each wrap. Divide the chicken among the wraps. Roll the wraps up like a burrito, tucking in the sides to hold the ingredients in. Serve cut in half.
Eat neat: Keeping the filling inside a wrap or burrito can be a challenge, especially if you’re on the go. That’s why we recommend wrapping your burrito in foil so you can pick it up and eat it without losing the filling, peeling back the foil as you go.

Substitute fresh berries for frozen when making this year-round treat in the summer. My favorite is cherries! This sauce also pairs well with biscuits or as a stand-in for syrup on pancakes.
This salad has the perfect balance of sweet and salty from the beetroot and feta cheese – SO good! Super healthy and tastes even better!

- 2 tablespoon roughly chopped parsley
- lemon vinaigrette
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves – minced
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
