Dr Jockers Comments:

My family always loved the American Italian food cuisine of spaghetti, lasagna, pizza, pesto’s, etc. Going grain-free eliminates these foods unless you learn how to be creative and innovative. With recipes like this, I don’t miss those inflammatory foods at all and it sure feels much better eating clean like this!

This pesto is incredible and rich in good fats, antioxidants, electrolytes and key minerals. Eating this in the raw form provides more enzymes and the raw fermented cheese has probiotics too.

This is an ideal lunch as it is low-carb, raw and full of life giving enzymes and antioxidants and has enough good fats and moderate protein to keep you satisfied till dinner. This sort of combination will keep your blood sugar stable, is easy on the digestive system and will keep you high energy and productive all afternoon.

You could also use the finest julienne attachment on a mandolin slicer, or carefully cut long julienne strips with a sharp knife. The spiralizing gadgets make the most consistently long, thin spaghetti, though. Paderno is one brand, but there are now several.
