Our new found love for the spiralizer, yeah I know here in FOP we are a little late to the spiral wagon party, has led to the creating of this vibrant, zesty, and a little spicy bowl of goodness. The mixture of zucchini noodles, shredded carrots, and Lotus Foods Rice Ramen create the perfect base. Since its summer time, grilled chicken that is marinated in The Ginger People Ginger Peanut Sauce and Ginger Beer creates an unforgettable dish.
My perfect weeknight meal is packed with veggies, whole foods that fill me up. PLUS it tastes delicious, made in less than 30 minutes, all while being perfect for the summer months.
Healing meals are about feeding yourself with real foods that are great for you.
Cucumber noodles are easy to make and a perfect way to sneak more veggies into our meals.
This is the perfect fake out take out, and taste amazing cold.
Sesame oil, ginger beer from the ginger people, organic non-GMO peanut butter and sriracha with cut up ginger make the BEST sauce. Light, not too heavy and coats everything perfectly.
Cucumber is hydrating and crunchy.
If you aren’t feeling the peanut butter, swap it up for almond, cashew or any mellow nut butter you are feeling.
Feel free to garnish with anything, like avocado, scallions, sesame seeds or anything you like.
