Going Greener

2013-pledge

On January 2nd I made a pledge to have something green on my plate at every meal. I’ll showcase some of the greenery I’ve managed to put on my plate throughout the year here.

Update:  This page takes a stupid long amount of time to load.  I’m working at fixing it.  The images will eventually load – it just takes time my friends.

Greenly yours,

Layered salads are a pretty standard lunch for me - if you have not already spotted the trend.  This one is cabbage, shredded broccoli, chick peas, cilantro, yellow pepper, green beans and millet.  I topped the whole shebang off with home made guacamole with loads of lime.

Love it or hate it, cilantro is one of my personal faves.  I add it to wraps, throw it into salads and add it to my morning green juice.  High in chlorophyl and flavour this is a great green to add to your diet.

Kale is something I eat every day - if you define juicing as eating.  In my morning green juice I add 3 - 4 leaves of curly green kale.
