The Spring 2013 Healthy Vegan Challenge starts today. I'm not really doing anything different than I already have been, but the challenge has me committed to continuing to eat healthful, whole foods through the Spring. To be more specific, I will be closely following Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Eat To Live and Super Immunity recommendations. Dr. Fuhrman's eating style just happens to make me feel awesome. You should do whatever makes you feel your best. Healthy lifestyle is not one size fits all, so figure out what works for you and do it. And tell me about it in a comment. I'm always interested in hearing what works best for other people.
So, knowing that the challenge was starting today, I enjoyed some ramen at Boke Bowl over the weekend.
They have a few gluten free and vegan options on the menu. I decided to have the ramen made with yam noodles and caramelized fennel broth with pea shoots, shiitake mushrooms, eggplant, and water chestnuts. It was delicious! I added some sriracha-style hot sauce and Japanese pepper that was on the table because I like lots of spice, but the broth was rich and flavorful on it's own.
Yum. Boke Bowl ramen really hit the spot. I'll definitely be going back for more.
How was your weekend? Any new food discoveries? Challenge yourself to any new healthy habits? I'm pretty sure I'm always inspired to make positive changes in the Spring.
Have a great Monday. I'll see you in a few days.
