Hello you! Today I am sharing red cabbage and carrot salad with an insane peanut butter dressing.This combination is absolutely amazing!
When I think about making a quick and tasty lunch, my thoughts often turn to using Ryvita. As you know, I love eating them with any meal – at breakfast time with my Acai Berry Bowl or for dinner with my Creamy Pea and Basil Soup . So imagine how excited I was when they got in touch and asked me to be involved in their #MyVita campaign, especially when I heard about the brilliant prize that’s up for grabs.
Like me, they want everyone to see how exciting healthier food can be, so that you can truly enjoy eating it every day. Many years ago, Ryvitas were often thought of as only being a dieter’s best friend, and part of that is because the main ingredient is rye, which has lots of nutritional benefits including:
• High in essential vitamins: B vitamins thiamine and folic acid, as well as riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6
• Rich in magnesium: helps to promote normal muscle function
• Rich in zinc: promotes healthy bones, hair, nails and skin
• Rich in wholegrain and dietary fibre
These days, it’s a great healthy eating choice because there are so many clean, interesting and great tasting flavours to choose from like Cracked Black Pepper, Hint Of Chilli and Sweet Onion. #MyVita is all about taking them to the next level by using them as a blank canvas to top with something unusual and delicious.
Red Cabbage and Carrot Salad with an insane peanut butter dressing
Well, I love a challenge (and it was almost lunchtime!), so my creative juices were flowing. In no time at all, I topped a Cracked Black Pepper Ryvita with this red cabbage and carrot salad with a kickass peanut butter dressing finished off with a slice of orange and drizzled with some more peanut sauce. It tasted fresh and crunchy, and would be so easy to take to work with you if you put the topping in a separate container.
So let’s talk about how you can get involved, as I’d love it if one of my clean eaters won that prize!
Ryvita are giving away either £1,000 or, a ‘lunch less ordinary’ experience of a trip to Paris on the Eurostar for lunch at a fantastic Parisian restaurant. For a chance to win, choose your favourite Ryvita crispbread and top it with the most interesting combination you can think of. Be as inventive as you can because boring toppings are not allowed! Yes avocado, or tuna mayo or cream cheese does taste good, but we see that on Instagram every day. Instead have fun combining your favourite flavours to create something new and unusual that we’d all love to try. You can share your photo on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, tag it #MyVita and tell them which Ryvita you used, and what your terrific topping is made from.
