Cook some simple spicy noodles
This spicy noodle dish has been on heavy rotation in my diet recently. I find myself making it for lunch at least a few times a week. Ready in just over the amount of time it takes to cook your noodles, it’s exactly the kind of recipe I want to show someone who says it’s too expensive, difficult, or time-consuming to make healthy meals from scratch. Paired with a creamy raw kale salad, it makes the perfect meal. And in a pinch, it will serve you much better than most of the foods people grab in the name of convenience.
