WIAW – I’ll Bring the Oriental Noodles in Peanut Sauce

It’s WIAW Party Time!

Thanks, as always, to our gorgeous host Jenn over at Peas and Crayons.

For this week’s party, I’d like to share our eats from Monday.

Lil’ L and I chose to have one of our favourite breakfasts this morning… a raw chocolate banana energy smoothie. It always feels so decadent starting the day with chocolate. I thoroughly recommend it 😉 I followed our usual recipe, though as I’d run out of chia seeds, I used hulled hemp seeds instead for our omega-3 boost. They worked really well and blended up super smooth.

Since organic carrots were on special offer at Tesco this week, I stocked up and made a large batch of Carrot & Coriander soup. This is one of our all-time favourite Autumn/Winter soups.

Snacks & Drinks
While revising for my latest Buddhist exam, I snacked on raw nuts, raisins and choc chips.  When Lil’ L got in from school, he also chose to have a bowl of raw cashews for his snack.

For drinks, I had Clippers Organic nettle tea, Twinings Peppermint & Nettle tea, black coffee, strawberry & banana smoothie, and water.

For dinner, we had an Oriental Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce. I love stir fries as they’re so quick and simple to make. Adding peanut sauce takes stir fries to a whole new level of yumminess!

Unfortunately I didn’t manage to take a photo as there was no light by the time I cooked dinner, but it looked very similar to the one below … but even more colourful with the addition of red cabbage & yellow pepper 🙂

Here’s how I made it….

Fresh pineapple cubes & non-dairy yoghurt

That’s me done for another WIAW. Time now to prepare for my kids’ meditation workshops. I’ve got such a lovely bunch of kids again this term. I feel so lucky to be able to spend the afternoon with them! It’s bliss! 🙂

UK readers, don’t forget to enter my Raw Hot Chocolate Giveaway. It closes at midnight tomorrow (Thursday).

Enjoy the rest of your week everyone xx

  1. As usual all of your food looks so delicious here! I especially love the look of the Oriental Stir-Fry with Peanut Sauce you made for dinner, I absolutely adore stir-fries 🙂 When I was at uni I’d have them for dinner several times a week! I like to marinate my tofu in soy sauce, rosted almond oil with chili and garlic, and then throw it in with loads of veg – delicious!

    1. Your tofu marinade sounds absolutely delicious! I’ve never tried roasted almond oil before, but I love anything almond flavoured. I’m definitely going to seek it out and give it a try 🙂

  2. Yes, like this. I like the stripy straw. Watch out there’s a Humphrey About. (Google it if you have no idea what I’m talking about; perhaps you’re too young…). T

    1. No I’ve not heard of Humphrey. He sounds a bit strange. I’m intrigued now though so I’m going to have to Google him. Hope he’s not scary as it’s nearly bed time 😉

    1. Honey and chilli flakes sounds like a beautiful combination for a stir fry! I’ve never bought chilli flakes before but I think they would go really well with my peanut sauce. I’ll add them to next week’s shopping list and give them a try 🙂

  3. What all do you do in your meditation workshops? Those sound interesting!

    I love stir-fries! Please post some of the recipes as you try them out! My favorite is the obvious Chicken Lo Mein, which I haven’t had in forever due to my wheat allergies. Probably a good thing though… 😀

    1. Every Wednesday afternoon, I run 2 1-hour Buddhist workshops for kids at our local primary school. The objective of the workshops is to help the children to understand their minds better ie. understand where happiness comes from, show them how to attain peaceful states of mind, etc. We start the workshops with a little meditation which often involves visualisations, followed by a story then arts & crafts, drama or a film. I’ve been doing it for a couple of years now and absolutely love it! 🙂
      I promise I’ll post some more stir-fry recipes in the near future… We had a yummy ‘sweet and sour’ stir fry the other day. Next time I make it I’ll write up the recipe, photograph it, & post it 😉

  4. Yes, I’m a fan of stir fries but I don’t have any recipes.. I’ve never actually made it myself. I do love thai restaurants a lot though. My mom made pretty good stir fry a few times. My time to make some will come soon enough 🙂

    1. I love Thai food too! We’ve got some amazing Thai restaurants in Bath and whenever we treat ourselves to a meal out (not often these days!) Thai is always my number one choice. I cook a lot of Thai food at home but it’s never as good as the restaurant food. I’ll have to ask them to give me a lesson one day 😉

    1. I’ve been meaning to try Tamari so thanks for reminding me! I’m intrigued to find out how the taste compares to Soya Sauce. I’ll have to pick some up next time I’m at the health food store.
