A Vegetable Kind of Day

I used to freak out if I didn’t fill at least two meals a day with vegetables. Now, there are some days I don’t eat anything green, and you know what? That’s okay as I get plenty of nutrients and vitamins from other foods I eat like meat & eggs, and did you know that fats like butter helps the body absorb calcium and the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K? That being said, there are days when I crave veggies like crazy, yesterday being one of them..

For lunch I made more basil carrots with 1/2 an onion and ate what remained of the Nutty Lemon Brussels. I rarely eat cheese, but Chris loves the Kerrygold brand, and we’ve been buying it at Costco. I’ve been nibbling on it here and there. Cheese is really good, especially when melted over veggies. :)

For dinner last night, I made one of my favorite combos…

First I sautéed 1/4 lb. of grass fed finished beef with 1/2 an onion until cooked through. I then stirred in some spinach and sauerkraut. After the spinach cooked down, I added a few TBSP of tomato paste mixed with a heaping spoonful of sour cream and water to thin. Yum.

Summer had her first green experience…she was not a huge fan.
