Have you ever noticed that when you hear throwback music, even if you haven’t heard it in years, you seem to automatically know all of the lyrics? We went to brunch yesterday and I was literally bopping along to songs that I definitely haven’t heard in over 10 years. Even though we always hear that the human brain has terrible memory (hi Mandela Effect), it’s interesting the things that we hold onto in our memories. Music has always been that thing for me.
 
Speaking of memories, this Asian noodle salad is something I would’ve happily packed for lunch in high school and back in university and definitely when I was working a day job as an attorney. Even though I didn’t live on campus for university, and home wasn’t that far from work, it always made such a difference to pack lunch. Otherwise it meant going home for lunch (TERRIBLE idea) or always having to buy lunch (ugh.). I admit I wasn’t always the best at planning meals ahead back then, but I’d like to think that I’ve gotten way better at it now.

Take this Asian Noodle for example. It makes you WANT to prep ahead of time. You’d think cold noodles would taste kinda weird, but they’re so amazing. Add some thinly sliced veggies and top with a creamy Asian peanut ginger sauce? Yup, that’s lunch friends. Best things about this cold Asian noodle salad:
 
  • Great for lunches
  • Tastes amazing cold
  • Smooth and creamy peanut sauce
  • Loaded with veggies
  • Easy to swap for your favourite veggies

It doesn’t matter where you’re having lunch – this will work so well. In fact if you want to bring it school and peanuts aren’t allowed, you could easily swap it out. Almonds, tahini, sunflower seed butter – they’ll all work as a great base. The noodles keep great for a few days, too. They’re super filling thanks to the noodles and the nut butter.
 
So tell me – do you also seem to have fantastic memory when it comes to old songs? And when are you making these noodles?! Enjoy friends!
