Foodtrients - giveaway

Eating a certain diet rich with nutrients to stay looking and feeling young? That's the premise behind Foodtrients: Age-Defying Recipes for a Sustainable Life. The pages are filled with antioxidant and other super power filled foods. Will it work? Your guess is as good as mine, are there some tasty recipes? Absolutely! I admit I wouldn't make everything from this book, chicken livers anyone... But there were also some keepers for sure. Like this green tea noodle dish!

It was a hit for dinner, although I'll probably use a little less ginger next time, I felt like it dominated things a little too much. Otherwise I loved this dish warm for dinner, and then cold the next day for lunch! (I made a double batch so we'd have leftovers, that plus we tend to eat more than a typical serving size... just saying)

2 cups brewed green tea
1 recipe ginger dressing (see below)
3 oz soba noodles (they also suggest using udon which I used)
2 Tbs chopped scallions
1/2 cup shelled cooked edamame
sesame seeds for garnish

Boil tea and use to cook noodles (the noodles only take 4 minutes), drain and set aside. Toss with dressing, scallions and edamame, serve with sesame seeds.

For sauce mix together: 1 Tbs grated fresh ginger, 1 Tbs soy sauce, 1 Tbs rice wine vinegar, 1 Tbs sesame oil.

Too much ginger? Impossible. I love, love, love ginger. (in case you didn't know.)

I have become a fan of wheatgrass juice. I feel more energy and haven't got sick since I started drinking them...

I'd eat chicken livers if I could procure the organic kind. Something from my childhood, I've always enjoyed them.

I am in love with collard greens.  I eat them stir-fried, sauteed, and raw wrapped around different vegan fillings like bean burgers!

Gayle said...

I eat spinach by the pound!  It's so yummy with a little salt & pepper, balsamic vinegar, and a dash of olive oil.  Tons of nutrients and lots of protein!!!

I just love chia and raw cacao nibs. I find myself sprinkling them in any and everything. :)

Tomatoes are always my favorite.  Fresh ones, sun dried, canned.  Just about any way you want.

I can't resist edamame in any form, so this dish looks like it was made just for me! Gorgeous photography and styling, too- Those noodles look so gracefully intertwined. :)
