Peanut Noodle Stir Fry

16 May

Lets be honest, peanut butter rocks.

There is something about a huge spoonful of peanut butter that just seems to make life so much better.

Peanut butter on oatmeal.
Peanut butter on yogurt.
Peanut butter on toast.

You get the picture.

We decided peanut butter on noodles would probably be pretty delicious too; we were right.

Udi’s Cranberry Granola. You really cannot go wrong with a description entailing clusters of oats, walnuts, and dried cranberries
20130328-143548.jpg
Organic Girl Super Greens. These have been the base for the majority of our salads recently. Although we love our spinach it is always nice to switch it up every once in a while for a little variety.

Rasberry-Lime Hint Water. We’ve tried this flavor and blackberry so far. They are the perfect combination of water and fruit without being too overpowering. Kayla is not a fan of fizzy drinks so finding flavored waters without fizz is a major plus!

Farmers Market Organic Pumpkin. Does this even need an explanation? It is perfect on everything and anything.

Kaya Organic Sprouted Sunflower Seeds. These are perfect thrown on top of yogurt or oatmeal for an extra crunch factor!

Dorset Cereal Museli. This brand rocks. The description on the box says: the finest multi-grain flakes raisins and sultanas, sunflower seeds, dates, brazil nuts and whole roasted hazelnuts blended together to make our lovely muesli. Are you hooked yet?
20130328-143704.jpg
Organic Flax Paks. These are seriously perfect for traveling and breakfast on the go.
20130328-143711.jpg
Hodgson Mill Bulgur Wheat. We cannot believe we haven’t discovered this before now. We are obsessed. So obsessed it may or may not have been included in at least 4 meals this week.
20130328-143716.jpg
Vino de Milo Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing. We think this dressing taste exactly the same as the Whole Foods brand. Since the nearest Whole Foods is over an hour away we’ve decided this will justify in its place.
