Oh, My! Pad Thai!

Apparently I have not been posting everything I actually write.
So although I meant to publish this long ago, its still here deliciously waiting for me to post.
Well, here you go, this is one of my favorites because anyone who knows me knows that I love almond butter and I also like my veggies saucy.
This is so easy to make and crazy good!
For the Sauce:
3/4 cup Almond Butter
1/2 cup coconut water or if you like it really creamy use 1/2 cup Fresh Coconut Milk (do not use coconut milk from a can it does not taste good in this recipe!)
3 TBS Tamari Sauce or Coconut Aminos
3 dates
Juice of one lime or grapefruit (depending on how much citrus you like)
Dash or two of cayenne

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend......
***If your sauce is too thick add more coconut water. If your sauce needs more salt add more tamari or coconut aminos. If you like it spicier add some fresh jalapeno (start with 1/4 teaspoon and add a little at a time so that you do not overdue it!) If you like it sweeter add more honey or dates..... delish!

Create noodles with spiralizer or by cutting them julienne. Carrots, zucchini, dikon radish, sprouts, and red pepper are all delicious in this dish. Place noodles on a bed of baby greens or torn up kale, cover in sauce and serve! For garnish you can use cherry or grape tomatoes, carrot slices, cilantro or even mint. Did I mention this dish is delicious?

We have to stop procrastinating, pretending that we have forever to do what we want to do and to be what we long to be. If we think that we want to become better and more loving human beings, we had better start moving in that direction right now.
