Vegan 🌱 Vegetarian ღ Pescatarian 🐠 Flexitarian
Easy, healthy dishes for you to try ღ ღ ღ
Though I am a 99% plant-based muncher – with an occasional exception for wild Cambodian honey, yogurt, and a free-range organic egg – we have been healthy flexitarians, including animal products in 2 to 3 meals a week, for many years. We are all on a different path in our life. Don’t judge too fast and be kind to others.
If you still eat animal products, make sure they come from reliable organic sources that treat their animals with kindness and respect.
In a hurry, try this quick, easy, healthy plant-based dish. Though you could opt for zoodles only I like the mix of soba zucchini noodles.
In the past few months, these soba zucchini noodles have become a regular at my home. With my hubby living in the capital 5 days a week for work and me having to do all the household chores, quick and easy dishes just like these are my new favorites.
Loaded with flavor and good-for-you-nutrients, this will quickly become a family favorite. Mark my words.
New to Soba Zucchini Noodles? Here’s all you need to know!
Soba Noodles aka Buckwheat Noodles
Soba – which is Japanese for buckwheat – is a Japanese staple food recently gaining popularity in the West. Buckwheat is a nutritious, gluten-free seed or pseudocereal. However, not all soba noodles are made solely of buckwheat flour. Some brands might add some wheat or rice flour to the mix so make sure to read food labels if you are allergic to gluten or just want to avoid them in your diet altogether.
Next to being super delicious, buckwheat is a good source of plant protein, fiber, and energy. Since buckwheat does not contain gluten, it is a great alternative to pasta for people with celiac disease or gluten intolerances.
Zoodles aka Zucchini Noodles
Zoodles are low in calories, gluten-free and packed with health-promoting nutrients. Zucchini contains zero fat and is high in water and fiber. It also contains significant amounts of vitamins B6, riboflavin, folate, C, and K, and minerals, like potassium and manganese.
