What’s for dinner: eat your greens

Tomorrow is officially the first day of spring! To celebrate I challenge you to eat some greens everyday this week and notice how you feel. I find if I buy a big bag of greens at Costco it makes me motivated to get through it before it goes bad. Greens don’t just have to be leafy- broccoli, asparagus, peppers, green beans count too! 

We are having a Green Day around here and started the day with a bed of sautéed greens for a left over bean burger, a little cheese, salsa and fried egg on top. 


After a quick hike we had a smoothie with a cup of spinach, strawberries, 1/2 banana, water and a scoop of powdered gelatin.


Lunch was leftover chili with green peppers and an avocado. 

Dinner is shredded chicken over Asian slaw salad. 

The nature of spring is to flourish. I hope you are feeling that way! 

Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

(Hubby requested) BLT with roasted pepper and tomatoes soup with a few handfuls of baby chard thrown into the soup

Kale salad with cilantro tuna

Surprise meatloaf (this has a hidden hard boiled egg inside I’ll post a picture and maybe recipe after my husband makes it) with a side of asparagus and a few veggies hidden in the loaf too.

Rice cakes (not the stale crunchy kind) with steamed broccoli 

What are your favorite green recipes? 

This Week’s Theme is Sleep

I don’t know about you but the time change especially in the fall always throws me off. The time changes Sunday November 3rd at 2:00am.

 

This week we will focus on sleep and taking advantage of the only good thing about “fallling back” an extra hour of zzz’s.

How to Stay Grounded During Transition

This week’s theme will be around staying grounded. The fall is a time of transition between the brightness, lightness of summer to darkness and a returning inward of fall.

 

Especially in the Midwest many people have trouble with the darker times of year. Check back this week for a recipe, medicine cabinet essential, meditation, and natural remedy geared towards keeping you grounded as we move into the colder, darker months of the year.
