Eat your greens


Every Sunday I go grocery shopping with Morgan. I remember hearing that you should only buy food from the outter perimeter of the grocery store. Everything in the middle is over processed, chemical, JUNK. So I *try* to stick to the outter perimeter. You know, fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, whole grains. Today I got sprouts! Spouts are an amazing SUPER FOOD! To find out more about sprouts and where I get mine from click here.
Today I made a sunflower sprout salad.
I start with olive oil in the bowl I will be eating out of. Then I squirt a bit of lemon juice and mix them together. I add a bit of salt and fresh ground peppercorn pepper. I then cut up some tomato and cucumber and add the sprouts and mix it all together. EASY and YUMMY! Oh and good for you too!

I like to wash it all down with a greens+ drink. Greens+ is a powder with lots of awesome ingredients in it. My favorite magical ingredient is spirulina. I feel such an energy BOOST when I drink it. I simply mix the greens+ powder with orange juice. Yes, once blended it is green, but that's okay! It is so GOOD!


Okay, now I'm off to eat a donut! LOL!!!! Come on, I can't be healthy ALL THE TIME!

Yum, love sprouts! Sounds similar to a Greek style salad I make. tomatoes, cukes, olive oil, splash of Balsamic vinegar and crumbled feta. I bet sprouts would be delish in it too.
Greens + is something I seem to go on and off of. I make mine in a jar and shake it up good:)Easiest way to mix it I think.
Yay, I got my wee package! Love it:)) Thanks:))
Cheers, Shelagh

The salad looks yummy but whenever I eat sprouts I always feel like something is going to start growing in my stomach! I'll have to look for that Greens+ powder! I'm trying to eat healthier, especially after this weekend! ~ Jill

I am an avid fan of green drinks, as well, and especially green smoothies! My favorite is a big handful of baby spinach blended with cold water until it's all liquified. Then I add three ripe bananas and a bunch of frozen fruit (like raspberries, blackberries, strawberries). Yummy! Also, I am a HUGE fan of sunflower sprouts. My favorite is a wrap in romaine lettuce with raw almond hummus, greek olives, carrot sticks, baby tomatoes and the sunflower greens. Also... here is a recipe I think is fabulous on my old healthy raw food blog: http://peacenplenty.blogspot.com/2007/01/sunflower-basil-salad.html

I love the look of that salad and I think I will look around for "green" drinks.

So I checked around for Spirulina and where would you recommend buying it? I like the idea that you get the B12 in it, instead of taking a vitamin. Please let me know when you have time, thank you.

All this healthy food makes me feel like a fresh donut! Mmmm...

Thank Goodness, I was thinking you might be too "good". The salad sounds yummy. My fav dressing to make is balsamic vinager, olive oil and some dijon mustard, very tangy and good.
