Greens, Glorious Greens
My CSA farm share is in full swing. What does that mean in early summer? GREENS!
There is nothing like the buttery taste of fresh-cut lettuce. Besides lettuce, we are getting stocked up on swiss chard, kale, bok choy. Mmmm, mmmm. I never knew I could love and actually crave these kinds of foods until I ate them fresh off the farm. Now I am tempted to snack out of the bags on the way home from our pick-up.
My green smoothie challenge has been, well, adapted. I haven’t had a smoothie all week, but I have been substituting it in other ways to get my greens in daily. Here’s what I’ve done:
*I wrapped leftover chicken in collard greens for lunch.
*Cooked potatoes and kale in chicken broth with a little lemon juice and served it alongside a salad.
*Sauteed swiss chard and tomatoes and served it with salmon cakes
*Sauteed bok choy with red pepper and a creamy sesame sauce I made
The point is, I’m getting at least one big helping of greens each day – whether it be in a smoothie, or alongside something at dinner. It feels and tastes good!
How are you getting your greens today?
