I have written here about the power of vegetables (But lets be honest, is there anyone out there who doesn't know that veggies are good for them?). However, what kind of blog would this be if I didn't offer up some recipes to make them better?
2 finely diced beets
2 cups chopped kale
2 cups spinach
Saute beets in olive oil until tender, add kale for 3 min, then add spinach for last minute. Season with salt and pepper. If everything goes according to plan everything will be roughly the same texture, tender but still with a little fresh snap to it.
Healthier Cole Slaw
Cole Slaw mix (Cabbage, Red Cabbage, Shaved carrots, what have you)
Red and Yellow Bell peppers
Prep: Mix everything with some olive oil salt and pepper. Add vinegar if your into that (I'm not a fan). The strawberries replace the sugar in slaw dressing, they are best if diced and mixed throughout the salad. Add a couple dashes of Tabasco instead of the vinegar if you like things hot!
There you have it, eat up and reap the benefits!
