Happiness and energy in a bowl. What more could you want on a Monday?
If I could summarize in a single recipe what a healthy diet means to me, this bowl might just be it. It’s fresh, crisp, vibrant and heavy on the veggies with plant-based proteins throughout and a creamy and indulgent almond butter dressing. In other words – the perfect balance of this-tastes-freakin-amazing and this-makes-me-feel-freakin-amazing. I was bouncing off the walls with energy after I ate this….actually I still am. Has nothing to do with my homemade organic Starbuck's Frappuccino I made!
You can use a julienne peeler (or a Y peeler to make ribbons) or a mandoline with a julienne blade or spiralizer for this recipe. If you really wanted to, you could chop everything by hand the old fashioned way!
The almond butter sauce is very light – using only 1/2 tablespoon of oil – but it’s still creamy and indulgent at the same time.
Note: If making for a week at a time for lunch, like I do, double the recipe. :)
