Super Greens

4:24 PM Jackie Mart 0 Comments




Noticed this pasta at the grocery store! This is NOT a way I would recommend getting your greens in! The pasta is "enriched" wheat noodles with dried spinach, zucchini, broccoli, parsley, and kale.  You are better off adding those greens to a smoothie or chop the real deal up and add to your pasta! 

Here are some other ways to get your daily dose of greens in: 

-Add spinach to your egg bake, egg muffins, or toss into your morning green smoothie!
-Make "zoodles" with zucchini using a vegetable spirilizer.
-Steam broccoli and top with a little olive oil, lemon pepper and sea salt.  Serve as a side dish with your protein at dinner-time.
-Whip up some kale chips
-Juice your greens using a juicer.
- Use spinach instead of lettuce as a topping in your sandwiches or wraps.
- Make a big salad for lunch using all of the green veggies mentioned above. 
-Broccoli is used in my famous Detox Salad


Yield: 10 cups (lots for the whole week!!) 
Ingredients: 

  • 2 heads broccoli (1 bunch), stems removed 
  • 1 head cauliflower, stems removed 
  • 2.5 cups shredded carrots 
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds 
  • 1 cup currants 
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley 
  • 1/2 cup raisins 
  • 4-6 tbsp. fresh lemon juice, to taste 
  • kosher salt, pepper to taste (1/4-1/2 tsp. salt and lots of pepper) 
  • kelp granules to taste  

Directions: 

1. In a food processor (or chop by hand) process the broccoli (no stems) until fine. Add into large bowl. 
2. Now process the cauliflower (no stems) until fine and add into bowl. Do the same with the carrots. 
3. Stir in the sunflower seeds, currants, raisins, and parsley. Add lemon juice and seasonings to taste. (You can always add in broccoli sprouts as well!)
