One of the intentions I set when I started Heather's Whole Food Kitchen was to increase the number of vegetables I eat in a day. I know I probably eat more veg than most, but I personally saw room to replace crackers, snacks and smoothies with greens and raw vegetables. Some mornings we have avocado and tomato with our eggs, others we have a whole selection of veggies piled into our omelette, and sometimes I make smoothies for breakfast using a handful of kale or spinach. But lunch is usually slim pickings for me. I am tired, the kids are napping and I just want to start prepping dinner and maybe answer a few emails before they're up and at full speed again. I don't usually have 'lunch', I just kind of nibble here and there on a piece of cheese, a few crackers and some fruit (leftovers are always given to kids or Brad and there just never seem to be enough!).
But I have turned over a new leaf I tell you: salads!
Quick, easy, nutritious and different everyday.
On today's menu:
a touch of roquefort
olive oil and apple cider vinegar
It hit the spot with a cup of tea (my new favourite- Bengal Spice from Celestial Seasons- oh my it's sweet without sugar!) and a piece of dark chocolate.
Isn't it lovely to treat yourself kindly?
