{Thrive} 5 Ways to Eat More Vegetables

5 Ways to Eat More Vegetables Eat more vegetables. This may be my favorite nutrition tip and it’s a positive wellness intention I focus on daily. I’m always encouraging myself to eat more vegetables. If you consider the risk to benefit ratio of this recommendation, it speaks for itself. Risk: minimal. Benefits: abundant. Plus, I love an intention that encourages me to have more versus less, especially when it comes to food. Enough of the deprivation people.

{Nourish} Singapore Noodles

As a clean food fanatic I have been having a tough time indulging in Chinese food take-out but man, I love it.  My solution?  Make it at home.  I love Singapore noodles, a curried noodle dish, so I cleaned it up for all of you to enjoy.  Made with rice noodles, I loaded up on the vegetables in the gluten free dish.  You can add some grilled chicken, shrimp or even pork (traditionally used) or simply whip up an egg or add a bit of organic tofu to round it out.
