Cold Zoodles with Peanut Sauce


Super healthy and satisfying, this is the perfect summer dish. It is a great way to take advantage of the abundance of fresh, local vegetables at the farmer’s market. It is especially great for hot summer days when you don’t want to turn on the oven and are craving a cool, delicious dinner.

I used the OXOX Good Grips Spiralizer. However, if you do not own a spiralizer you can often find spiralized veggies at grocery stores, such as Trader Joe’s.

Give the recipe a try and let me know how it goes! 




2 Tbs dark sesame oil

1/2 cup organic peanut butter (can also use tahini)

1 Tbs agave

3 Tbs soy sauce

1 tsp minced fresh ginger

1 Tbs rice or white wine vinegar

Hot sesame oil or hot sauce to taste

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, or more to taste

3 medium zucchini, spiralized

1 medium English cucumber, spiralized

1 medium carrot, peeled & spiralized

1/2 cup chopped scallion

1/4 tsp sesame seeds

Optional Protein: Add edamame and or grilled chicken for extra protein


1. Whisk together the sesame oil, peanut butter, agave, soy sauce, ginger, vinegar, hot oil and pepper in a large bowl. Thin the sauce with hot water until it is the consistency of heavy cream (about 1/4-1/2 cup)

2. Combine the spiralized zucchini & cucumber with the sauce. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Garnish with carrot, scallions and sesame seeds and serve :)

Makes 2-3 Servings

today's oat creation: pear, oats, almond milk & organic PB

This month at Urban Om we are focusing on making our mornings as beautiful as possible. One way to embrace your inner early bird is to do a bit of planning the evening before so your morning can be as seamless as possible.

One of my favorite preparations for an early morning is over nights oats. These yummy oats take just minutes to prepare and are perfect for a healthy grab and go breakfast. 

My recipe changes depending on what I have in my fridge and what I am craving but check out the basic formula below.

The basic overnight oats recipe:

1/3 cup old fashioned oats

1 cup almond milk

1/4 cup fruit

1 tbs nut butter (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a mason jar the evening before enjoying. Throw a lid on the jar & give it a little shake. Store in the fridge and voila! - you have a yummy, healthy breakfast waiting for you in the morning.

Feel free to get creative! Add cinnamon, agave and/or chia seeds. I love nut butter so I always add a scoop to my oat creations :) Give this recipe a try and comment below with your favorite overnight oat combinations.

Wishing you happy mornings, Yogis!


Golden Milk Latte Bliss

Golden Milk Latte Bliss

Looking for a new addition to your nightly chill-out routine? Winding down with a golden milk latte at the end of the day is a great way to de-stress and promote a good night's sleep. 

Golden milk, made with the magical herb, turmeric is quickly becoming popular for its ani-inflammatory, anti-viral and antioxidant properties. The secret behind turmeric's superpowers is the compound, curcumin. Among its many claims to fame, curcumin is said to alleviate joint and muscle pain, boost the immune system, aid digestion and promote glowing, healthy skin. If you are spring cleaning your diet, this healthy treat is a great alternative to alcohol, should you be looking for ways to cut down on your vino intake.

See below for the recipe for this healthy concoction. Black pepper and the fat in coconut oil enable the body to absorb all of these magical benefits so make sure not to skimp out on these 2 important ingredients. Cheers!
