My sister called me yesterday just to chat (which I'm not so good at - sorry, Liz) but mentioned that she reads the blog sometimes and commented, "Yo - you eat so much kale!" I don't really feel like I eat it all that often. I love it, of course, but spinach is more ubiquitous and is cheaper and is therefore generally my green of choice. But today I was looking at my food, and I guess I do eat a lot of kale. Because it's a bit tougher than spinach, a little goes a long way but it also goes bad pretty quickly so when it's around, I try to incorporate it into meals as much as possible, for sure.
Breakfast was greens-less though:
Raw, soaked steel-cut oats, banana slices, walnuts, and a few dried apricots.
Lunch was a huuuge salad of kale, spinach, red bell pepper, broccoli, zucchini, and carrots topped with some homemade sundried tomato hummus, lemon juice, a little olive oil, salt and pepper.
And dinner: red quinoa with some leftover lunch salad (told you it was huge! I couldn't even finish it!) and sauteed broccolini with tomatoes cooked in shallot, garlic, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegar over more kale and zucchini. Oof. Honestly, it might have been too much but now I have delicious leftovers for tomorrow's lunch.
What is your favorite way to eat the good greens?
