Here are a few of my favorite things, from this week, at least:
Green (Moroheiya) Noodles
I love ramen noodles, but stopped eating them years ago since the sodium is through the roof—my father-in-law fondly refers to the original as salt-water soup. I recently found these tasty little green noodles, they’re entirely vegan and totally delicious. Made from Moroheiya (a super vegetable), they provide vitamin A and a decent amount of fiber. Cube up some tofu, add some carrots and mushrooms, and you have lunch in under five minutes! You can find them at Whole Foods or your local health food store.
New at Trader Joe’s this week
Organic kale, finally! What was the hold up on this one?! Well, whatever it was, we’re glad they’re now stocking it because it’s terrific and long awaited. All chopped, washed and ready to go. There’s also this great new bagged mixed greens — baby kale, spinach, and chard. Talk about a powerhouse of a salad! It’s my new default salad mix, because we could all use some extra super greens in our day.
