Last Friday I talked about the importance of eating non-starchy veggies and challenged everyone (myself included) to include more into every meal.
Admittedly, my biggest struggle in this challenge has been adding greens to breakfast. Green smoothies make things simple enough; as do eggs and omelets with sautéed spinach or kale but this past weekend my mom made sticky buns and I had no idea how to incorporate greens with it in a way that wasn’t complete blasphemy. I am (slightly) ashamed to admit that I ended up just grabbing a handful of spinach afterwards and eating it raw. Gotta do what you gotta do though, right?
Anyway, with that in mind, I wanted to share some recipes for breakfast, lunch dinner and snacks that incorporate lots of delicious veggies! I hope this will encourage more of you to join in my #HappyHealthyApril Challenge. This challenge means a lot to me because as we get closer to summer, I see more and more ads and challenges to get that “beach body” and products and companies stressing workouts and diets that “shred fat”. I want to encourage people to focus on self-care and being happier and healthier mentally, physically and nutritionally.
