Eat your greens!

For those of you subscribing to my 12 for 12 video newsletter, you already know that April is officially the month to eat your greens.  1-3 cups a day!  To help folks out I am sharing 3 of my favorite recipes – enjoy!

Simplest Greens Ever!

1 bunch greens (Dino Kale is my favorite)

Chop greens.  Put into steamer basket.  Steam for about 5 minutes.  Top with any dressing/marinade – my fave is Soy Vey.

Tasty Breakfast Salad

I don’t know why I love this salad for breakfast, or what actually makes it a breakfast salad.  But I do know it is delicious and I love to eat it in the morning!

1 bunch arugula or 1/2 of a pre-washed container

2 medium or hard boiled eggs (pasture raised), chopped

Grated Parmesan or Parmesan crisps (optional)

Mix ingredients and add dressing.

Tasty Breakfast Salad Vinaigrette

3 tablespoons local honey

6 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

3 teaspoons Dijon mustard

3/4 cup olive oil

salt and pepper

Mix honey, vinegar and mustard.  Once blended add olive oil, salt and pepper.  Yum!

Kale Pizza

If I am ever going to be famous for a recipe, this one will probably be it.

Pizza crust (make yourself or try the fresh-made dough at Whole Foods)

2-3 bunches kale

1/2 cup finely chopped red onion

5-10 cloves garlic

Sliced kalamata olives (optional)

Organic feta cheese (optional)

Olive oil

Balsamic Vinegar

Preheat oven to 425.  Roll out pizza dough and top with olive oil.  Slice garlic thin and place on crust.  Wash and chop kale.  Place in bowl and ad olive oil and salt, massage kale until it start to wilt.  Add onions and a dash of vinegar.  Mix well with hands and then place kale on top of crust.  Add olives and feta if desired.  Bake 12-15 minutes until kale gets a bit crispy.  Works best on a pizza stone.  Enjoy!
