Leftovers Roasted Balsamic Eggplant Salsa

Green foods make the world go round.

World go round. World go round…

Ok, no songs, but seriously, GREEN is the magic color in the food kingdom. I believe this green is what makes for some damn good food.

It’s always a surprise fascination to me when someone says they don’t like vegetables. Really?! I always wonder what happened in the early stages of childhood eating that turned them against broccoli and spinach and squash and such.

Alright, I admit, I used to hate tomatoes. Loath tomatoes. I’m not even sure why. I can tell you though, that to this day, amidst my tomato-LOVING tastebuds, I still cannot do tomato juice. No V-8 juice, no freshly juiced tomatoes, and certainly NO Bloody Mary’s. I’ve tried and I cannot. So I will cut these veggie-“haters” some slack.

I think you just haven’t had the right veggie, cooked the right way. Maybe that’s where I come in.

Besides *ahem* hiding *ahem* some greens in smoothies, sautéing them to perfection or even tenderly roasting that squash to crisp perfection, some still might not be swayed.


I’ll make a believer out of you.

If you’re still not convinced, here are some seriously tasty green recipes for you to try out.. or for fooling a veggie-hater not-so-mucher:

Rich & Creamy Tahini Kale Salad

My favorite Green Smoothie

The Perfect Pestacado for stuffing any green

Banana Zucchini Muffins or Zucchini Drop Cookies (both equally delicious and LOW added sweetener)

The Shaken Sweet Potato Smoothie, perhaps?

Carrot Cake Oats, anyone…?

How do you prefer your greens?

Do you have to hide your greens or eat them plentifully?
