Have I mentioned how much I love salad bowls? They are such a favourite of mine right now, and a great way to encourage lots of veggies on your plate.
Vegetables just on their own, can be a little uninspiring. But chop them, add in some protein, and maybe even some noodles or rice and a little bit of healthy fat if you choose and you have a delicious balanced meal to dig in and enjoy.
Chopped Salad bowls like this Peanut Chicken Noodle Salad Bowl are totally perfect for lunches on the go too. Add all the components to a container and then put the dressing in a separate little tub and once ready to eat, you can drizzle on the dressing, toss and dig in and enjoy. Simple, easy, but delicious flavours.
Another thing my family loves is peanut butter, we go through quite a lot in our house. The kids love it as a snack with some apple slices or spread on whole grain toast with some slices of banana and a drizzle of honey, I even add a tablespoon or two to their smoothies.
However, being conscious of what the kids are eating, I prefer to choose a peanut butter that has all-natural ingredients, like Kraft 100% Natural Peanut Butter which now comes in four variations such as:
- Smooth: All-natural smooth peanut butter with just 1 ingredient – peanuts
- Crunchy: All-natural crunchy peanut butter with just 1 ingredient – peanuts
- Sea Salt: All-natural peanut butter with the addition of 1 extra ingredient – sea salt
- Honey: All-natural peanut butter with the addition of 1 extra ingredient – honey
These delicious all-natural peanut butters can be found in the peanut butter aisle of your local grocery store here in Canada and they really do taste great.
You will notice with natural peanut butter, that the the oil settles to the top, so upon opening to use, you should stir and then refrigerate.
A great tip for storing it in the fridge is to place it upside down. This helps keep the natural oil of the peanuts mixed, so that the peanut butter is ready to go next time you need to use it.
Fast forward to today's lunch and this amazing Peanut Chicken Noodle Salad Bowl. I am constantly raiding my fridge and pantry for ingredients that I can combine together. I hate waste, so if there is something that needs to be used, you can guarantee it will go on my plate (or bowl). Which can sometimes result in some crazy combinations as I spot something that I decide to throw in at the last minute. Although I haven't yet put together anything that we didn't enjoy.
I really love Asian inspired food and so with some chicken and veggies that needed to be used, I added in some egg noodles, with cilantro and spring onions for a delicious Peanut Chicken Noodle Salad Bowl.
But wait!! - you can't have a salad without a dressing, right? Which of course drew me to the beloved peanut butter staring at me from the fridge which I combined with a few other ingredients for a satay style peanut dressing. My excitement at drizzling that over all the beautiful ingredients staring at me from the salad bowl had me desperate to dig in and devour. What can I say, little delightful things like that mean I am easily pleased when it comes to food.
My kids are not overly fond of raw veggies, but with the delicious peanut flavour, even they enjoyed sampling a small bowl of this Peanut Chicken Noodle Salad Bowl. If you really struggle with vegetables, or have some extremely fussy kids on your hands (haven't we all at some point?) you could try spiralizing some other vegetables like carrots or cucumber to hide in with the noodles.
