Cucumber Noodles with Peanut Sauce-this gluten-free noodle dish is light, fresh, and healthy!
I kind of over indulged when we went to Disneyland. That tends to happen when we travel. I try to eat healthy when I can, but I also like to try new foods and splurge a little. Vacation isn’t vacation without a few treats here and there.
Last week it was back to reality…laundry, dishes, and my normal healthy eating and exercise plan. I may have snuck in a cookie or two, but it is all about balance:) I did create a killer healthy recipe for lunch one day, Cucumber Noodles with Peanut Sauce. Gluten-free, vegan, and oh so tasty! I am seriously in love with this recipe!
We make zucchini noodles all the time. They are a favorite at our house. I decided to mix things up a bit by making cucumber noodles. I used a mandoline to make the noodles. It is super easy. If you don’t have a mandoline, you can use a julienne peeler or spiralizer. I used seedless cucumbers so I didn’t have to mess with the seeds. I also left the peel on because the peel doesn’t bother me. You can peel the cucumbers before turning them into noodles if you don’t care for the peel. The noodles came out perfectly!
Josh wasn’t home during lunch time, so don’t worry, I didn’t try to kill him with the peanut sauce. It was just me and Caleb…and thankfully Caleb has no food allergies so I busted out the peanut butter to make a peanut sauce to go with my cucumber noodles.
I tossed the cucumber noodles and peanut sauce together. I garnished my noodle dish with crushed peanuts and freshly chopped cilantro. I sat down with a tall glass of water and enjoyed my healthy lunch in silence. Just kidding, my lunch was far from silent. Caleb was singing the Itsy Bitsy Spider and running around the kitchen in circles. At least I had good entertainment to go with my delicious lunch:)
