For those of you have read my blog for a while, it is probably obvious that I'm not really into celebrating holidays in a traditional way. I won't be wearing green today (although I have always said my green eyes count!) but I will share some of my favorite Green Recipes!
Let's start with my go to Green smoothie. This is a definite health beverage that I have developed a taste for. I just take 1 frozen banana, two cups of organic baby spinach and 2 c water and blend! When I start my day with one of these (and sometimes I add 4 c of water and make it really think, almost like a juice).
Sprouting is a simple way to add some green goodness into your diet! It's super cheap and easy to do. All you need is a clean glass jar, a knee high pantyhose (brand new obviously) and a rubber band. Check out this post for further instructions! I love packing salads and collard wraps with sprouts and sometimes just mix several different kinds together (my favorite are red clover, lentil, hot mustard and broccoli sprouts) for a SPROUT SALAD! When I am really low on funds sprouting allows me to get some good GREEN produce into my diet!
How about a Portobello stuffed with Goat Cheese, Spinach and Basil?
Or a collard wrap stuffed with your favorite veggie burger?
Don't forget the guacamole!
How bout some Kale Chips (and raw mozzarella sticks too!)
and of course, Split Pea Soup
and some Pesto!
and of course... Raw Kale Salad!
...and finally another couple of pictures! I am funding my Cross Country Road Trip with Cooking Classes and Photo shoots! Here are some more of my portraits!
