garlic zucchini noodles with roasted brussel sprouts, fennel, and mushrooms

Serves one.

1 zucchini, spiralized or hand-cut into noodles
lemon juice

5 brussel sprouts, sliced, halved, or roughly chopped
1/3 bulb fennel, roughly chopped
2 mushrooms, sliced
1/3 onion
1 clove garlic

spring onion
nutritional yeast
salt and pepper
liquid smoke
garlic powder

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
Prepare the zucchini, set aside with a squeeze of lemon juice to soften them up. Combine brussel sprouts, fennel, onion and garlic in a dish and coat lightly with oil. Place in oven for approx. 15 min; give the veggies a stir and add in the mushrooms for another 10 minutes or so. Remove from oven, and combine with the noodles, spicing it up with the toppings. 
Devour, guilt-free.

carrots gone dry?

No recipe today, but a fantastic tip that I wish I knew about ages ago! Do your carrots dry up too, when you keep them in your bag all day? Well I've got a solution for you! Slice in some bell pepper and store them in your snack bag along with the carrots- they'll keep them moist plus you've got yourself some more healthy snacking! Win-win, folks.

carrot pasta with creamy dressing

Today's been a tough day. PMS and complete exhaustion don't go hand-in-hand. I tried to cheer myself up by spreading some joy, but my speech failed me and I ended up complimenting a random chick on her "awesome boobs!" instead of boots... Sigh. A compliment's a compliment, I guess, even though I did come off as a massive creep. The minute I got home I fixed me up a delicious raw dinner -- and gobbled it down before I could even snap a photo or two. Below is my variation of the recipe, and here's the inspiration. One Vegan Bite's also got a picture of it on the post to tickle your tastebuds.

Serves one.

1 large carrot, spiralized or cut on a mandolin and sliced into "noodles"
some kelp noodles

2 tbsp milk (I used flax)
2 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp Dijon mustard (because it's my favourite condiment; although I 
          can imagine that the almond butter originally called for would be
          quite delicious here as well)
1 mushroom, chopped
handful of broccoli, chopped (or any other veggies)
sprinkling of 1/2 nori sheet, crumbled
pinch of kelp, nutritional yeast, black pepper, and garlic powder

Prepare the carrot and throw in some kelp noodles; set aside.

Combine the 3 sauce ingredients and pour onto the "noodles." Allow to marinate and soften them while you prep your veggies. Shouldn't take long- devour!
