I have to admit, I had fun yesterday creating green meals. One was WAY outside of my comfort zone, but turned out to be really good.
For breakfast I made some green oatmeal. Yeah, I got a bit adventurous with my oatmeal and added some spinach.
I know your thinking, she’s nuts. There is NO WAY I’m adding spinach to my oatmeal. But trust me when I say, it’s really good, and the spinach taste is very subtle.
I made a pot of creamy oatmeal. When done, I added blended organic baby spinach, maple syrup (to taste), and 1-2tbsp hemp seeds to my oatmeal. Next I mixed everything together, and garnished with shredded coconut.
And there you have it…Shamrock Oatmeal 😉
Next, I made a really yummy green smoothie as a midday snack.
After enjoying my green oatmeal, I was in the mood for a green smoothie. In my Vitamix, I added 1 1/2 kiwis (diced), 1 small green apple (diced), 1/2 green pear (diced), 1 large frozen banana (sliced), 1-2 handfuls of greens (I used a mix containing spinach, chard, kale & mizuna), and @1-2 cups coconut water. I blended everything until smooth, and topped with hemp seeds. If too tart, you can always add a natural sweetener (maple syrup, dates).
And then for lunch/dinner, I made a spinach pasta.
This was definitely the perfect “green” lunch in my Planetbox Rover.
I just boiled some store bought spinach pasta in salted water. When done, I tossed in a little olive oil and topped with raw pumpkins seeds.
And for dinner, I tossed the pasta is some homemade alfredo sauce, and topped with raw pumpkin seeds.
And that’s it…This is how I ate myself GREEN for St. Patrick’s Day 😉
