Eat Your Greens!

IMG_1762

I love greens so much! All of them. They are super detoxifying and alkalizing, and high in fiber, iron, calcium, and vitamin A. The versatility of greens allows them to be eaten during all meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner (including snacks!).

You can cook greens, chop them up and eat them raw in a salad or blend them in your favorite smooth.

Sautéed Greens

1 bunch greens of your choice (kale, chard, collards, mustard greens)
1 Tbsp. olive or coconut oil
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
2 Tbsp. coconut aminos
1 tsp. black pepper

Rinse greens well. Tear or cut leaves away from stems and discard stems. Coarsely chop.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic in oil briefly, and then add greens, a few handfuls at a time, stirring in between.

Stir in coconut aminos and pepper. Cover. Cook until just tender, 2-10 minutes, depending on the type of greens and your preference.

What’s your favorite way to eat your greens? Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Unless you’re a vegan, top those gorgeous greens off with a fried/poached egg or 2 and some hot sauce. My favorite meal. Thanks Erica!
