Please don’t think less of me.
I struggle with eating enough vegetables.
I just can’t get enthusiastic about salad.
Steamed vegetables are so bland.
I don’t like cauliflower unless it is smothered in cheese sauce.
I recently found a solution in this green monster smoothie because it is so delicious and the taste of the greens completely disappears under the yummy nutty flavour. It makes me feel simultaneously virtuous and self-indulgent while giving me a good dose of energy for the afternoon.
I was also overjoyed to discover the Eat the Rainbow website created by my friend’s daughter, Audrey, for her class genius hour project. You can learn more about Audrey and genius hour here. Audrey, like me, is a salad avoider. Instead, she discovered how vegetables transform when roasted from unplesant to tasty. That’s what her website is all about. I tried her roasted radish recipe (who knew?!) last night and it was delectable.
