Towards the end of Summer and in the fresh start of Fall, I relish the rich greens we get in the CSA box. You can always make a salad or chop them up for a soup, an omelette, or to wilt in a melt or in some ground beef, but I took some time to look at the nutritional aspect of these great greens so I could maximize my family's gains. I learned a lot!
I've shared a lot of recipes here on the blog, most of them simple, but none so simple as this: wash and eat.
It's easy to forget the beauty of eating fresh produce. Growing up mom always told us we didn't have to ask permission to snack on fruits or vegetables. We could help ourselves to the stock on the counter and in the fridge. I'm grateful for the fact that she helped me create this healthy habit early.
