That’s right everyone- today is Veggie Thursday!! On Veggie Thursday we make an extra effort to seek out more servings of veggies then we normally would.
This week seek out that extra serving of veggies in a fall veggie soup. Soups are a great way to get your veggies in like zucchini, squash, carrots, celery, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, tomatoes etc…add some protein like beef or chicken and you’ve got a whole meal.
Brian my M-TRAIN partner in crime has a great suggestion:
Well, you know I don’t like vegetables, so this is what I do: I take the nastiest veggies I can find (because they are usually the most nutrient rich), in this case Kale (make sure it’s dry, can’t have any moisture on it at all) and Broccolini. I toss them with a little bit of olive oil and sea salt. I distribute them evenly on to separate cookie sheets and bake them at 400 degrees for 10 or 15 minutes. It’s like eating potato chips it’s so good. Some of the nutritional value may be cooked out of the Kale, but the Broccolini needs the heat to allow the nutrients to be digested, so it’s an even trade. Nutritious and delicious.”
