what we've been up to + a quick healthy lunch idea

hi friends!

since i last posted on here 
we've gone on vacation,
we got the never ending cold
(seriously, went strong for two weeks!)
we've moved
we've spent lots of time with my in-laws who are in town
and i second shot my first wedding
(more on that later)

it's safe to say we've felt overwhelmingly busy
but, busy or not, a gal's got to eat!
and despite caving to take-out more than i'd like to admit
i did manage to throw together this salad last week
it was so quick and so easy to make, i just had to share! 
Quick Pad Thai Salad
gluten free / dairy free / vegan / paleo
serves 1


- 1 small zucchini, julienned 
- 3 broccoli florets, chopped tiny
(my trick:  start at the stem and chop towards the top of the "tree". as you move up, the florets get smaller. stop when you've reached a size you like)
- a handful of baby carrots, julienned 
(or just regular carrots, those are just what i hand on hand)


- 1 tbsp almond butter
- garlic powder, to taste
- ground ginger, to taste
- 1 tsp fresh lime juice
- himalayan pink salt, to taste
- 1 drop honey (seriously, it makes a difference!)
- 1/4 tsp almond meal (optional, for "grit"...i'm a texture eater!)


- prep salad veggies and place into a bowl
- whisk dressing ingredients together
- pour dressing over veggies and top with a handful of crushed walnuts
