Eat: Best Meal Ever, Kelp Noodle Bowl

As Fall comes along and the weather gets colder, I tend to follow the "raw until dinner" rule pretty often. When I go for that option, the day is made up of fruit, green smoothies, and a few dehydrated goodies, and dinners tend to be any kind simple cooked veggies with the occasional tempeh.

I've mentioned before that I tend to get a little bit obsessed with certain foods and eat them every day for a month until I move on to something new. This month, I figured why limit myself? So I took all of my favourite meals from over the past few months and put them into one. The result was this amazing kelp noodle bowl that I created a couple days ago. It pieces together all my favourite cooked and raw foods all into one giant bowl of yummy.

On top of a flavour and texture extravaganza, it's nutrition-packed, warming, and can be made in under 20 minutes. Pure deliciousness. Given its components, I'm also sure it contains all the minerals, vitamins, healthy fats, proteins, and anything else you might ever possibly need.

The bowl layers are as following:

1. Kelp noodles, rinsed quickly in hot water and mixed 
with a splash of Bragg's (or tamari) and apple cider vinegar.
2. Steamed Broccoli and Stir Fried Chinese Eggplant, stir fried in olive oil, Bragg's, 
and organic ketchup (yes, ketchup! It gives it a really delicious sweet and sour-y flavour).
3. Sea Sprinkles (aka. my mermaid food!), the most delicious way to eat seaweed!
4. Other Toppings, like chopped raw almonds, sesame seeds, sauerkraut, etc.
