food rut: avocado toast

Do you ever get into a food rut? Where you discover a new amazing meal and all you want to do is eat it all the time? I'm totally stuck on avocado toast right now. It's SO simple & SO GOOD!
  • 1/2 bagel or 1 slice whole wheat bread
  • 1/4 avocado
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper

1. Place the bread or bagel into the toaster & cook until it's perfectly golden
2. Take a fork and smush the avocado onto the top of the bagel
3. Sprinkle the avocado/toast with a little salt & pepper
4. Serve with half a peach or another fruit for a quick & healthy breakfast - yum! :)

rice noodle bowl with veggies

This easy noodle bowl is fresh, colorful, and totally hits the spot when I'm too lazy to drive myself down to the good Vietnamese places on Federal ;)

  • 1/4 box thin rice noodles
  • 1/4 cup carrot- shredded
  • 1/4 cup your favorite type of sprouts
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper thinly sliced 
  • 1/4 cup red cabbage shredded
  • 1/2 cup your favorite sauce

1. Fill a medium saucepan halfway up with water and bring to a boil
2. When the water is bubbling, remove pan from heat & drop the rice noodles into the liquid
3. Let the noodles soak for approximately 10 minutes while you chop & shred your veggies
4. When the noodles are soft, drain out the water & place them into your serving bowl
5. Top the noodles with your veggies & then slather the entire mixture with your favorite sauce- soy, hoisin or even this easy peanut sauce. Now grab those chopsticks & dig in!
