* Salad f o r Breakfast *

The humble salad, in most peoples minds, belongs in a little side bowl with a dollop of tasty dressing and contains no more than 4 veggies.

  Then there’s people like me,

 ((:not sure how many that would be:))

who eat salad like it’s their J O B….

On average, I buy 3 greens a week….usually 2 lettuces ((romaine, red, green…etc.))

                                                              ….and a non-lettuce((kale, spinach, arugula…etc.))

                                                            I pile on the colors….((red, green, yellow peppers,  shaved carrot, cukes, red cabbage, green onions, and  tomatoes))

  My salads are always topped with nuts ((walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflowers…etc.))

                                                      sprinkles((dulse, chia, sesame seeds, nutritional yeast))

                              sometimes I add cheese((feta or cheddar))

                             and if you aren’t a veggie((Chopped egg, Turkey chunks or tuna))

I almost always make my own dressing as a simple mix of oils, ACV and garlic powder with a

S Q U E E Z E  of L E M O N

It’s pretty….a work of art….I am a salad artist =)

 I don’t have to tell you how good veggies in layered form are for your health.

How about starting your day with a crisp green pile of veggie goodness!

 I do it all the time!

It’s by far my favorite meal to start the day…..

* Good Greens *

All veggies are super good

(especially ORGANIC)

and deserve a VIP front row seat in any meal…

But the ones that really make an impact are the GREEN VEGGIES

*Kale

*Spinach

*Chards

*Lettuces

*Sprouts

*Herbs (basil.dill.thyme.parsley)

*Green Onions

It does take a little creativity and experimenting in the kitchen, believe me, I’ve put in my fair share.

I build salads with multiple lettuces for varying textures. If cooking the greens such as chard and

kale, use a coconut oil and plenty of herbs, Himalayan salt and nutritional yeast….oh so yum!!

Green smoothies are another way to up your intake of these great nutrients…just a handful of spinach

kale and a banana makes a tasty base you can add anything to…

Try a saucy version….chop kale, chard and a few herbs….sauté and simmer in good organic tomato

base….serve over pasta, rice or spaghetti squash…..another yum!!

Start small…add a few greens at a time to soups or sauces….get the feel for a new lettuce in your

salads by hiding them in a romaine or green leaf base.

Everyone knows how good greens are….as a blood builder, an internal cleanser & brain food.

Buy yourself a bunch from the local farm stand…browse Pinterest to find a recipe you dig

and plan to spend a little creative time getting to know a superstar vegetable!

Let me know what you came up with…

I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy my greens!!
