So you all know we are drinking (and sometimes chewing- depending on who makes it) lots of green smoothies here at TCD. People are asking if that’s all we eat! We haven’t turned green yet, so we must be eating something else as well. I’ve been doing the weekly grocery run, and have been trying to mix it up with the whole foods. Here is what we’ve been eating for lunch the last two weeks – quite yummy! Thought I’d share (it’s EASYYYY)
Oodles of Noodles
Cook one box of whole wheat angel hair or spaghetti pasta. Drain, and either cool it for lunches or eat it hot right now.
Asian style – Add 1/4 C olive oil, 2 t. rice vinegar, 1T soy sauce, 1 T sesame seeds, 1/4 c sunflower seeds, 1t grated ginger, 1 t garlic and 1 t red curry paste (this makes the recipe great – look by asian food in grocery store) Toss with the noodles, then add thinly sliced zucchini, carrots, green onions and red peppers, napa cabbage, etc.
Italian – Add 1/4 C olive oil, 2 T. balsamic vinegar, 1 t Italian seasoning, 1/2 t crushed red peppers, 1 t garlic. Toss with the noodles, then add thinly sliced zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, green onions, red peppers, artichoke hearts. You can add whatever veggies you have on hand- broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, you name it. I also lightly stir fried the veggies one night and mixed it with hot noodles and it made a delicious and quick dinner for my family. Serve with miso soup – also one of my very favorites. (I’ll put a recipe for that next time!) Enjoy – let me know if you like it! Dr. J
