I discovered another way to get a serving of fruit in when I waited too long to make a smoothie for breakfast and it was time for lunch! I made my salad (they all look the same you say?) and dressed it with Strawberry Vinaigrette: throw 5-8 strawberries in the blender with a Tablespoon or two of pomegranate balsamic vinegar (or any other vinegar or lemon juice), half as much water and a Tablespoon flaxseed meal. Whirl away and yummy!
Then, in the spirit of lean and green! I found a great quartet of hummus at Trader Joes and plopped the parsley scallion hummus on top. See photo with some of my favorite salt-free seasonings (also included: plain, roasted garlic & roasted red pepper)
Speaking of lean, green & clean – I caught a cicada on my front porch having just morphed & burst out of his old body beautifully green and resting in his body while it adjusted to his new form! How perfect is that as a metaphor for life?
