Everything in greens tonight! These noodles for starters are such a great find at costco! Organic Gluten free edamme two ingredient noodles (organic edamme and water). Not bad! The brand is Explore Asian Authentic Cuisine and I just looked it up and you can buy them on amazon! haha. What can’t you buy on Amazon!
At first my kids were hesitant because one.. its something new and two because they were green but that was soon forgotten after their first bite! Our rule is ‘you don’t have to like it but you have to try it”. This seems to work like a charm (once its convinced this rule means business :).
We used big fresh swiss chard leafs from our garden as a salad. I wrapped my vegan pesto pasta inside like a lettuce wrap and it was awesome!! (Swiss chard is awesome for lettuce wraps).
For the drink! Its two bananas, water, ice and super greens powder (my favorite is Enerex by far.. the taste and the quality is the best in my opinion and I have tried sooo many (also it was recommended to me by my families most trusted doctor).
For best digestion, drink the drinks before and then eat your cooked portions!
Hope you love it! I’m so happy to find a healthy gluten free pasta that tastes really good!
