Day 4 of Green Things March 15, 2012

Go Green!

That’s sounds so great, but how do I do that? You do it one step at a time. When it comes to food and cooking, “being green” can mean eating local, sustainably, and planet friendly.

A few years ago I heard a RD speak about her cookbook and strategies for cooking green. They were really clever and of course, tasty. Below is her cookbook. I highly recommend it, especially if you’d like to be more planet conscious, but not sure how.

Remember to check back in tomorrow for the big surprise I have been telling you about!

Have a healthy day.

 

 

A Week of Green Things – Day 3 March 14, 2012

“Broccoli will save your life.”

That’s a quote by me, by the way. I’ve been saying for a long time. The pictures is of Romanesco broccoli, an Italian heirloom variety. Isn’t it beautiful!?

Broccoli has been found to help lower cholesterol, help detoxify the body, and improve immune response specific to allergies. It is a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, vitamin A and fiber.  It’s a part of the cabbage family and it’s amazing for you! You need to eat it.

Choose broccoli 2-3 times a week to equal at least 1 1/2 cups. There are a couple of types of broccoli that you may have available to you – regular broccoli, sprouting broccoli, purple broccoli, and ramanesco (picture above). All are great choices.

All parts of broccoli are edible – leaves, stalk and all. To eat the stalk, peel it, slice it and cook it up just like the florets. Can’t get your kids to eat broccoli? Cut them into tiny florets, call them trees and present with a tasty nutritious dip, like this hummus.

Go green with broccoli today! There are so many ways to enjoy it that “I don’t like it” is no longer an excuse. Check out this link for Eating Well for more broccoli recipes.
