The way I grew up eating and subsequently cooking, are meals that have all separate components. Protein, grains, veggies, fruit, and everything else all separate. When I first got married, my husband found this to be an interesting way of cooking because growing up in a household of 8 children, there were a lot of casseroles served. But as life has become busier and more kids have entered the picture, I totally ‘get’ the casserole. But what I get and love even more is the one pot meal. Seriously – making an entire meal in just one pot. It is genius. And my favorite way to cook. This One Pot Veggie Yakisoba is not only incredibly easy to make, it will knock the socks off your family. It is a fresh, made from scratch kind of meal that will take you less than 20 minutes.
When I said one pot I wasn’t kidding. Technically you will need bowls to serve it in, or you could just let your kids go hog wild into steaming pot of yumminess with chopsticks in hand. (I would definitely not recommend that)
Begin my chopping your veggies. We added a lot. I even ended up adding more cabbage because it shrinks down and we love it so much. Once chopped, saute your veggies in a good size saute pan or wok over medium high heat until crisp tender. While your veggies are cooking away, now is a good time to whisk your sauce together. So lets talk about some of these ingredients for just a second. When I went to the Asian market, a very nice lady could tell I seemed a little confused looking at all of the different sauces in an aisle with a sea of Asian sauces.
I ended up getting:
- Aged soy sauce. Apparently it has more flavor and is a bit thicker than regular and so you don’t need as much in your recipes.
- Rice Wine Vinegar or Sake. This gives your dish a really nice flavor without too strong of a vinegar taste.
- Miran. This is a type of rice vinegar, but sweet and has a more syrupy consistency.
I found my Soba noodles at the Asian market in the frozen section. I like them because they are precooked, and you just have to thaw them. Once the veggies have cooked for a bit, add your noodles and sauce. I like to use kitchen tongs for this part to incorporate everything together. Toss until all the veggies and noodles are well coated with sauce. Continue to saute until the veggies are cooked to your liking and the sauce has thickened slightly.
That is it!! Can you even believe it? Dish into bowls or plates and serve. My kids really like to use chopsticks on occasion when we have Asian food. This is the perfect dish for them to learn with becuase there are big pieces of veggies that are easy to grip. If you want to add a protein to this meal, you can definitely add chicken or beef and still keep it a one pot meal! Just cook your meat first before the veggies, set aside and add back in with the noodles and sauce.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
