Kale Orange Mai Fun (Brown Rice Noodle) Salad from Whole Foods

I’m on national TV!!! CAPS’ PSA “This is the Face of a Puppy Mill Dog,” starring the pawmazing Kiley Wirtz-Jennings and moi, will air on HGTV, DIY Network, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel, and Great American Country for one year. To celebrate, I got two cookies from Pawsmopolitan and enjoyed every single bite and lick (even better, I didn’t have to share with the bratty brothers). After indulging my sweet tooth, I feel like the celebration should continue throughout the week and I should indulge other teeth as well. Mother found this yummy recipe in a Whole Foods magazine. It’s the perfect balance of nutritious, hearty and zesty. I’m officially drooling!


1 (8-ounce) package Mai Fun (brown rice vermicelli)
1/2 pound kale (small bunch), finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 (15 ounce) cans 365 Everyday Value(R) No-Salt-Added Chickpeas
