Asian Salad Recipe

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Working in an office that is too far away from my house to come home for lunch has definitely taught me to plan ahead and get creative when it comes to my packed lunches. Last week I decided to try out a new recipe and I really enjoyed it! I tried out a quick and easy Asian Salad recipe. I whipped this together in less than 20 minutes Sunday night and it made enough for my whole week. I just packaged it all up in Tupperware and grabbed it quick every morning. Bonus fact, it was super cheap to make this recipe so the fact that it lasted the whole week was insane!

Here is what you’ll need :

One bag of Dole Coleslaw Mix

Two packages of Oriental Style Ramen Noodles

One small can of Mandarin Oranges

Handful of Sliced Almonds

1/3 cup of White Vinegar

1/3 cup of Vegetable Oil

Salt & Pepper to taste

How to whip it all up :

Combine the salt, pepper, vegetable oil, white vinegar, a dash of the mandarin orange juice, and oriental style ramen powder.

Mix the coleslaw, uncooked ramen noodles, drained mandarin oranges, & almonds.

Combine the two mixtures and stir it all together.

Let me know if you try out this recipe. I love it and I think you will too!

What I Ate Today

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

breakfast

Breakfast

You guys know I love my smoothies! The smoothie I made this morning was similar to all my other breakfast smoothies I like to make. I add one frozen banana, (TIP : If you have any bananas that go bad before you eat them, pop them in the freezer to enjoy in smoothies. Peeling them and putting them in a Tupperware makes this process easier) assorted fruits, spinach, and a little almond milk for creaminess. I love this smoothie and it’s packed full of fruits and veggies. The fruit does a great job at masking the spinach taste so be sure to sneak in a larger amount of greens.

lunch

Lunch

I have a full time job so I have to pack my lunch every day. I normally like to bring a plethora of healthy food/snacks to tide me over all day. Most days, I’ll get hungry again around 10 am so I’ll either have a banana or apple. For my lunch today, I packed a turkey wrap, broccoli, and the fruits you see here (whichever I didn’t eat for my snack earlier). This normally tides me over until I get home. I’ll leave you a link here for the turkey wrap I made on this day.

dinner

Dinner

The only pasta dish I can get my husband to willingly eat, Chicken Parmesan. This is one of my go-to simple dinners when I don’t want to overthink it. I’ll thaw a couple chicken breasts the night before and can come home and knock out this cooking in less than an hour. It’s simple, easy, and delicious! I’ll leave a link here to a recipe if you’d like to give it a go!
