Trying new things.

Hello! I’m writing this from my phone because I’m in bed and don’t want to get up and get my computer.

Here’s the deal. For the past two weeks, I’ve been cutting out processed foods, but I’ve basically been eating the same things. I want to go on an adventure to the produce aisle and try all the fruits and vegetables and the like that I normally don’t pay attention to. My idea is to do at least one food a week.

I need suggestions, internet buddies. I eat cauliflower, broccoli, and bananas like it’s my job. Give me something good.

    -Baked apples. Core, stuff with cinnamon, bake in tinfoil.
    -Grilled zucchini with crushed red pepper. Slice them about the size of fries and cook until not-quite-soft.
    -Hot mixed berries. Buy a bag of frozen fruit, throw some into a bowl, cook. It’s like freaken cobbler.
    -Raw spinach & tomato wrap. Use a warm whole grain tortilla. Melted parmesan & mozzarella cheese make this one better, but I suppose cheese counts as processed?
    -Green smoothie: frozen mango & peaches, spinach, ice, water or almond milk. Blend.
    -Egg and asparagus on whole wheat toast. Sound weird. Is delicious. Especially if the yolk is runny.
    -Kiwi. They’re a natural blood thinner. Eat two if you’ve a headache.

  2. I’m a fan of sauteed spinache and mushrooms with garlic, rosemary and olive oil. You can throw in some potatoes as well. Fennel Au Gratin is fantastic too. I love eating blackberries plain. In fact I have some today.

  3. i always thought i hated asparagus but since trying it, i love it! i like to roast it, it gets nice and crunchy. with sea salt its kind of like eating french fries!
    i also used to hate olives and feta cheese, but one of my fav snacks now is those 2 with sliced baby tomatoes. so yummy!

  4. Roasted Brussels Sprouts are awesome! cut them in half, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle them with sea salt and roast at 400 for 15-20 minutes. Super good!

    grilled zucchini and yellow squash is also yummy

    one of my favorite breakfasts is poached eggs and asparagus — just sauteed in a pan with coconut oil (or olive oil) with a little salt and a squeeze of lemon before eating.

    Any kind of leafy green — Kale or spinach — soooo yummy!

    I also have been known to add some green beans to pasta water in the last 3-4 minutes of cooking, to have some extra veggies.

    Melons and berries are coming into season, so it’s a great time to have melon and yogurt (with a sprinkle of oats on top — yum!)
