It’s Not Just Easy Being Green, It’s Better

Just to prove that I’m not just pretending to get all inspired about gardening, the other night we made our first meal from foraging. Nasturtium Pesto!

Who would have thought that an overgrown weed could be so delicious. Mixed it with walnuts and the regular pesto ingredients and voila!

Yum!

I feel like a real human, fossicking for food on the hillside. Well, actually to be fair, the man went out in the cold and the dark to do the picking of the weeds, but still…I ate them.

Speaking of greens, the whole point of getting into the garden, is to try and find a way to support our reckless addiction to green smoothies.

I can’t recommend it more, I have them for breakfast almost everyday. (Almost…lets face it…sometimes eggs win.)

Today, I have in my breakfast right here, kale, celery, banana, kiwifruit, spirulina, flax seeds, blueberries, 1/2 a cup of organic apple juice and water.

We have been doing this for over 6 months now, and I totally notice the general all rounded improvement of my health and energy. Sometimes I even forget to have a coffee cause I’m not craving that pick me up.

Speaking of which it is definitely time for coffee!!!
