Cosmic Pad Thai Salad for Two

 

 

Cosmic Pad Thai Salad for two.

 

Rainbow Pad Thai salad 2 Cosmic Pad Thai Salad for Two

Looking to clean up your eating with colorful flavorful raw foods?

You will want to try this recipe and then take it to a new level adding your own unique ideas!

Another colorful photo of this salad really caught my attention on a Pinterest post and I took the basics and added some COSMIC flare!

Pad Thai noodles are a favorite food and thought this might be a good healthy choice if it tasted as good as it looked. The answer was YES the taste is amazing.  The Cosmic Pad Thai salad is a wonderful alternative to rice noodles with the replacement of zucchini and carrot spirals.

To create this salad, first I had to invest in a spiralizer and purchased it from Amazon.. there are many different kinds but the one I bought had no directions and  had to go to youtube to find out how to use it.  The process to search on the Internet then scan through all the options inspired me to create a video cow tip™ on how to use the new spiralizer. Check out the video of how to use your new spiralizer and subscribe to our Weekly Video Cow Tips™ to get new and fun ideas connecting the dots all over the Cosmic Cow Pie™ of life.

The ingredients for the salad included several items needed to  be purchased at an organic or natural food store so a stop at New Frontiers in Flagstaff, Arizona and found the market full of very knowledgeable sales help and wonderful organic choices.  Sharing my thoughts and some photos on trip advisor on the link above might help others coming to the area find what they need and help you discover natural food stores in your area.

Cosmic Pad Thai Salad for Two

Salad Ingredients 

  • 1 Zucchini about 8 inches long spiraled
  • 2 large carrots spiraled
  • 1/4 red pepper julienned
  • 1 cup diced red cabbage
  • 3/4 cup shelled edamame
  • 3 green onions diced
  • 1 TBS hemp seeds
  • 1 TBS sesame seeds

Dressing Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Braggs liquid Aminos
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 cup raw almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or low sodium tamari
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2.5 tablespoons pure maple syrup or agave
  • 1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

The dressing can be stored several days so make more and have it ready if you like it.  

Easy to create!  Practice once and you will have it down!    Review the video on how to use the Spiralizer and which grate to use!

Using the sprializer will inspire you to use vegetables as noodles for other dishes when you see how easy it is to create the feeling of noodles with vegetables.

Add your own flavor ideas to the dressing or add different vegetables to the salad to create unique Cosmic Cuisine™ with your own flare.  I added lettuce and avocado the 2nd day to some of the left over Pad Thai salad which had no dressing the day before.  The taste was delicious with all the vegetables mixing overnight and adding the dressing fresh the 2nd day gave new texture to delight the taste buds.

The Cosmic Pad Thai Salad for two will delight your guest AND really fill you up!

Shelley has started a monthly Google+ Hangout On Air called Funday School  which includes….. FUN, and GIVING on Friday!

This week the topic discussed by knowledgable leaders in their field was:  Grow your business by moving form scarcity to abundance. 

Google+ Hangout On Air Shelley Roth Abundance  What Can You Learn In A One Hour Google+ Hangout On Air!

 

 

Google+ Hangout On Air events provide anyone with an idea, business, product or service to share an opportunity to have up to 10 panel members LIVE on a youtube channel sharing information that can help or be of interest to others.

The dynamic members of this panel  (above on the filmstrip) making a difference in the world today were:

J-Coby Wayne ~ Chief experience guide at Energy Arts Alliance.

Deb Tummins ~ Corporate Leader Coaching

Suzette Cotto ~ Social Identity Branding

Pam Terry ~  Public Speaker Coach Author

Carra Riley ~ Small Business and Social Media consultant

Each panel member shared about 5 minutes on their thoughts of how working from “abundance” can impact your business.   

We had an inspiring discussion of how the Principle of abundance moves you to the Law of attraction making everyone happy with the outcome of the help they may need.  The viewing public is able to ask questions LIVE while the event was airing so there was great input from outside the panel as well.  See the archived event right here.   Who knew what could be learned from a one hour Google+ Hangout On Air! 

The Following are “Carra’s Cliff Notes” from the one hour Google+ Hangout On Air event produced by Shelley Roth.

  1.  Giving and sharing of your knowledge shows you as an expert.
  2.  Have a spiral steno pad with you at all times or voice memos on your phone, even by the bed to capture ideas that come and can be implemented.
  3.  Try a 100% satisfaction guarantee with your service.
  4.  Give of yourself by sharing your time.  Work from the principle of abundance KNOWING you will have the time to do what you need to do.
  5.  Ask 3 questions a day:    *  Who was I nice to?  *What did I learn today?  * How am I better today than yesterday?
  6.  Marketing thought to embraces… understand that some people are NOT going to like you no matter what!  SWSWSWN  Some Will, Some Won’t  So What, NEXT  
  7.  Must have a business platform set up so when you are giving there is something concrete for people to come back to for more help.
  8.  The Law of polarity keeps away things that can keep you from doing what you need to do.
  9.  Be sure to inhale as well as exhale… when giving don’t forget to be open to receive.
  10.  What you give should be effortless and seamless.
  11.  All energy converts.
  12.  Rehab from the mind set of “scarcity.”
  13.  Be like a wave.. go with the flow of the tide.
  14.  Applause is gratitude from the audience for what you have given them.   Take time to honor and thank the audience for their gratitude.
  15.  Scarcity is a mentality not a reality.
  16.  New thinking from the Harvard Business Review…. Gratitude is the new will power.
  17.  BE the purpose you are.  It’s all connected
  18.   There is ONE MIND…. connect with it.

Amazing what one hour on a Google+ Hangout On Air can bring out to help move thought to a higher altitude on a personal and business level.  Should you have any questions about the concepts shared feel free to contact any of the panel members to learn more about this way of thinking that can change your life!
