Alright, listen up! I'm here to share the veggie gospel with you once again.
The NUMBER ONE veggie that should ALWAYS have a VIP spot in your fridge is...
Because nobody has time for scrubbing veggies like a maniac, am I right?
Now, I know what you're thinking, "You're talking about greens AGAIN Suzette?!"
...YES, I am! Because hey, you can never hear it enough!
These leafy wonders are like little nutrition powerhouses that can do it all, so I have to keep evangelizing about them! They:
• Energize you, so you can tackle your day like a champ.
• Keep your brain sharp, because we could all use a little extra brainpowe.
• Boost your gut health, because a happy gut means a happy booty (wink, wink).
• And hello, immunity boost! Time to tell those germs who's boss.
Pre Washed Green Queens• Arugula, the sassy and peppery cousin of lettuce.
• "Power Greens" mix, the ultimate combo of kale, spinach, and chard, ready to take on any meal.
• Baby spinach, the cutest and tenderest baby of the greens family.
• Baby kale, the pint-sized powerhouse that packs a punch. No so bitter.
• Spring mix, the OMG of salad greens, always fresh and ready for action.
So go ahead, stock up on these veggie superstars and let them work their magic in your meals.
RecipesSay goodbye to boring meals and hello to fun with these easy combos:
Zoodle Night: Turn your kitchen into a zoodle disco with this groovy dish!
Just toss some baby spinach and/or baby kale with zoodles (zucchini noodles, for the uninitiated), rotisserie chicken, pasta sauce, and Parmesan. It's a party in your mouth that'll have you dancing to the veggie beat!
Pizza Salad: Who says salads can't be fun? Time to jazz up your greens with this pizza-inspired salad extravaganza!
Arugula, cherry tomatoes, garbanzo beans, and...wait for it...cauliflower pizza "croutons"! Just bake a small piece of cauliflower pizza as directed and cut it up like croutons. It's a salad that'll have you saying, "That's amore!" with every bite.
Caesar Egg Wrap: Wrap it up with this Caesar salad remix:
Grab some spring mix or power greens mix, toss in some rotisserie, grilled, or canned chicken, feta cheese, and lite Caesar dressing. Then wrap it all up in an egg wrap (think Egglife or Crepini brands) for a protein-packed meal that's Caesar-approved and pun-tastic!
Bye Bye Slimy GreensSay goodbye to soggy leaves and hello to crisp veggies with these tips:
If you buy Greens in a Bag: Don't let those leaves get all cozy at the bottom of the bag! Give 'em a good shake to spread them out evenly and store the bag laying down, not upright. No leafy traffic jams allowed!
If you buy Greens in a Plastic Tub: Combat moisture with a trusty paper towel! Just add one at the bottom of the tub to soak up any excess moisture and keep your greens feeling fresh and dry.
Loose Greens or From a Farmers Market: Roll it up burrito style! Lay your greens in a single layer on a long sheet of paper towel, then wrap it up like a delicious veggie burrito. Pop it in a plastic bag in the fridge for a storage solution that's as funny as it is effective!
Most Important Pro TipOut of sight, out of mouth? Not with greens!
Keep those leafy beauties at eye level in your fridge, not hidden away in the "rotters" drawer. Keep 'em in sight and you'll be more likely to munch on them before they rest in peace!
Bon appétit, and may the foodie fun be with you! 🍝🍕🥗😂
