I have lately started to seriousy pump up my vegetable consumption - the lovely Chef AJ who is a plant based chef and weight loss guru suggests eating 2lbs a day, 1lb for breakfast. And I'm doing that! I have to say i do feel a vitality i haven't felt in a while.
So what that means is that it's 4 days since i got my box and I've used so much of it already!
Kale - I love sauteeing Kale with onions and mushrooms in low sodium veggie broth, and sprinlking with balsamic vinegar and a bit of nutritional yeast. Also, we've been out of spinach so I've been putting a leaf of this in my kid's morning smoothies and they haven't complained....so that's a WIN
Cilantro - I could throw cilantro on anything and it makes me happy, but see below with the Chard for a recipe
Lettuce - GIANT SALAD - look at this bounty - it has the carrots and the watermelon raddish also! Oh i think for the reast of the head of lettuce I'll add strawberries to the next salad
Carrots - some whent into that salad but I will likely steam some for breakfast or snack and throw a few in my son's lunchbox. He like them steamed with Earth Balance and salt and pepper. Also made a juice for my friend Zoe with some of the oranges!
Valencia Oranges - mmmm fruit salad. with the Strawberries, banana, pinapple, mango and flax
Swiss Chard - this recipe of Swiss Chard and Chickpeas was perfect! I had parsley, garlic, onion, tomato paste and a can of chickpeas, cilantro and chard from the box - it was very very tasty
Zuchhini - it was so big and perfect I'm gonna spiralize it and figure out a sauce. Check back!
Happy veggie eating!
