|Can you believe that's KALE in there?|
Mr. Jones playfully makes fun of my Mad Scientist sensibilities when it comes to kitchen creations. But today, as an empty stomach begs for a palatable way to eat those greens, I believe my oddball creativity bore fruit of tasty origins.
Here are a couple combos I put together using just what was in the refrigerator door.
HULK-sized bag of baby kale + this dressing (40 cals per 2 tblsp)
+ canned beets, goat cheese crumbles (80 cals per ounce) and strawberries =
|Less than 300 calories, yet brandishes more flavor than a quinceanera.|
Then, we have this:
Another HULK-sized bag of veggies; this time, broccoli florets.
Steamed + raspberry vinaigrette + canned beets + leftover quinoa =
|A sweet, texture- and protein-packed bit o' broccoli.|
Just cut into cubes, simmer in Tikka Masala sauce from Costco, and serve over leftover veggies and quinoa!
**Sweet potatoes are loaded with benefits. My former nutritionist let me eat loads of these sweet morsels because they're low-glycemic, and contain anti-aging "cartenoids." Yum!
|Chris introduced me to this sauce. He is obsessed, now I am, too.|
|So good, you'll eat only this for three days, at least.|
Ah...all veggies are accounted for; spiced up and made fit for human consumption. Because rabbit food is great, but guess what? Sprucing it up with a bit of vitamin-packed enhancement aims to improve your health, not wreck your diet.
