Quick and Healthy Almond Noodle Recipe

foryoutube

Get ready for your new favorite recipe friends!

One of the most common issues I hear from my weight loss coaching clients is that they don’t have enough time to cook, or they’re starving and there isn’t anything in the fridge so… take out it is!

Enter quick and healthy almond noodles!

They taste as good if not better than take out and they’re ready in under 15 minutes!

The best part? This recipe makes a nice big batch so you can keep it in the fridge and eat it throughout the week – hot or cold, on it’s own or with a salad or soup for a side.

Why this recipe will make you feel like a superstar

Using almonds over peanut butter in these noodles means they’ll be easier to digest, plus you don’t need to mess around with the added sugar or preservatives.

The protein in these puppies makes this a perfect meal to power through your day so you feel full and energized longer and the rice noodles over pasta means no gluten to weigh you down!

I also made a short video so you see how ridiculously simple this is! Check it out below (plus get a peak inside my kitchen) and let me know what you think!
