WICKED HEALTHY NOODLE BOWLS

Noodles man!  Seriously, looking at these makes my eyes tear up, heart throb and conscious dance around the room and it’s not entirely because we love onions. We’ll make bad ass bowls like this, give them to loved ones rather than flowers any day, nothing screams “take me” like this!

Imagine how your girl will feel when you serve this to her and her family. I freakin LOVE YOU is how it’ll go! Of course if you’re making it for family members they’ll feel the love in a different way. Another upside to mixed noodle bowls is you can build them with left over odds and ends in the fridge and play the left over game of ‘wait wait don’t throw that away’! They make amazing lunches and are the hit of any dinner party or potluck. Beautiful, bountiful, tasteful and colorful hits the wicked sexy food mark.
