Falling in LOVE with Vegetables
Something weird is happening to me.
I’m craving vegetables!
Not cheeseburgers, not pizza, not ice cream.
Vegetables. Good ol’ vitamin and mineral packed veggies.
Green leafy ones are my favorite. I am in love with kale. IN LOVE! We eat it at least twice a week.
And I juice it too!
This is all so weird because while I was raised on plenty of vegetables, I never liked them because I was so involved in growing them, picking them, canning or freezing them. I hated everything that came out of the garden…well except for my families heirloom tomatoes, now those are seriously amazing!
Last night I made salmon and each one of us had a small piece, but the rest of our plates were filled with vegetables and brown rice. We had kale (of course) sauteed with avocado oil and 2 slices of beef bacon crumbled on top, pinto beans with onions and salad. I looked at my husband after I had filled my plate and told him there was something wrong (or finally right!) with me because my plate was piled high with these super healthy and nutritious foods, and I was EXCITED to eat them! It was amazing! My body was screaming THANK YOU!
Now if only I could get my husband to like beans, and my kids to like kale! Unfortunately, I think I was the only one excited about last night’s dinner!
I wish I would have taken a picture of it, but unfortunately I was so excited to eat it I couldn’t find the time to stop and snap a picture. I plan on recreating this meal next week though, so I’ll snap a shot then!
