Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie — GF, Vegan


The other night, cruising Pinterest (you can follow me here), I spied an Instant Chocolate Chip Cookie that was to drool for. So I repinned it and left a comment wondering if it could be modified to be gluten-, dairy-, and egg-free.

One-Pot Asian Noodles


We've been on a one-pot, shabu-shabu-style, Asian noodle kick. The foundation of this warming soup is this recipe which originally printed in an issue of Sunset Magazine from way back.

I've added a few more ingredients for kicks—kombu for an extra dose of iodine and iron, shiitake mushrooms and ginger for an immunity boost, and sriracha for a bit of heat. 

Into the lovely broth go noodles—either rice sticks or mung bean threads.

A Live Hangout with Our First Lady!

 


It was a wild morning! Rose bright and early to join First Lady Michelle Obama in her first Fireside Hangout on Google+.

The Let's Move! initiative is one that we ALL can back. And I thank Mrs. Obama for the great work she is doing. Fighting childhood obesity and getting our kids active and fit through physical activity and proper diet is something the First Lady and I are passionate about—and I know many of you are, too.

Join the movement! There's no better time than now. Find out what you can do to bring Let's Move! to your community. Visit www.letsmove.gov!

"In the end, as First Lady, this isn't just a policy issue for me. This is a passion.
This is my mission. I am determined to work with folks across this country to 
change the way a generation of kids thinks about food and nutrition."  
- First Lady Michelle Obama

Lastly, I would like to add that without the support of you, my readers, opportunities to take the voice of Lexie's Kitchen—and healthier eating—to a national stage like this one would have never opened up. So thank you! We are being heard, we are making a difference. Keep up the good fight my friends!

Baby Arugula Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette


It has been a brutal "sickie" season, hasn't it? Did you read that bit in the news about more people calling in sick to work in January than in any other month in the last five years. Mentally I am so done with being sick. My body has had it, too! All it's been craving is veggie juice and green salads—this salad in particular.
