Color-Blocking Asian-Inspired Noodle

My mouth is craving edgy flavors and my brain needs to visualize happy colors on my plate. This is the story behind the noodle dish.

In a frying pan, put some oil. When it is hot, throw a sliced onion and a sliced carrot (i have used the potato peeler) and grate some fresh ginger. The veggies need to cook but stay crunchy. Add some fresh tomatoes, pour some soy sauce to taste and add some honey. In the meatime cook the noodle in salted boiling water according to the instruction in the package.

Sauté the noodle with the sauce for a minute. 

To garnish add fresh chives or spring onion and fresh cucumber  for that extra crunch and sprinkle some sesame seeds. 

Lunch Box Idea: Crunchy Healthy Salad

Eating in the office could be extremely depressive, especially if you are stuck inside the building's premises because your office is in the middle of nowhere, you don't have a car and you only have 1 hour break anyway... Eating outside is also too expensive to do it regularly, could be heavy to digest and ticket restaurant are bullshit. Let's face it, what the hell can you buy with 5,29 euro worth of ticket restaurant for lunch??  not to mention that you have to go on a scavenger hunt to find where they even accept those stupid pieces of paper. I personally buy fresh food at the farmer's market and get the rest of the grocery at the local supermarket where of course they don't accept tickets restaurants for almost everything that I need except beer. I guess beer is more necessary than coffee, oil and maxi pad....according to the stupid team behind ticket restaurant. Here is a great lunch box idea that will let you forget about those stupid ticket restaurants and will make you happy. 

Ingredients for the Crunchy Salad:

Cherry Tomatoes
Fresh Fennel
Cooked Soy Beans
Canned Tuna

Dressing: Soy Sauce, extra virgin olive oil and sesame seeds

Dessert: Banana and Strawberries with a squeeze of a lemon
