greenery

It’s summer, it’s sunny, and it’s the perfect time to introduce healthier choices to your diet. So much produce is in season, so save the meat for special occasions and colder times, and focus on greenery and colorful veggies.

1. Salad: arugula, cucumber, tomato, cilantro, avocado. Dressing: olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice (optional). Best part? No portion control needed.

2. Lightly steamed broccoli (no more than 5 minutes), crushed raw almonds or raw sunflower seeds (or any other nut, really), some salt or garlic powder if you’d like, and a drop of flaxseed or coconut oil.

Some jasmine green tea to boost the digestive process (I chose Numi), and voile! An all-green dinner is served.
