Quick and easy dinner tonight… I was so tired and hungry from riding my bike all day and wanted something easy to make and high in healthy calories.
Brown rice vermicelli noodles w/ fresh picked veggies: zucchini, cauliflower, potatoes, carrots, cilantro, kale, snow peas, scallions, & a curry sauce that was half store bought/half home made. (the store bought stuff is sooooo yummy and has really healthy ingredients and is low fat, however it’s pretty high in sodium, so I blended some tomatoes, onions, hemp seeds, garlic, & water and then mixed that with the store bought curry to make it a lil healthier IMO ;)
