Sesame Miso Noodle Salad

Sesame Miso Noodle Salad

Liv King
It’s a New Year so most people are eating healthier, dieting, and working out. I get it but I hate dieting and always found it hard to stick with because the food is bland and well, boring. I say this year you should wave goodbye to dieting and say hello to incorporating more veggies, healthy sources of fat, and plant protein in to your diet! This sesame miso noodle salad proves that you don’t have to eat boring meals to be healthy.
