Intuitively GREEN!

Hey there, my little lettuce lovers!

Seriously, I can’t get enough of you guys and your unending support in my recovery. I want you all to know that each and every comment brightens my day and makes me that much more positive that I’ll be up and dancing that jig (with can-can kicks and everything) in no time! 🙂

As you guys can imagine, the worst pain out of all this is not being able to get in the kitchen and just do my “thang”. But instead of pouting over the fact that it takes
ten years to hobble around and prepare a DECENT meal, I decided to look on the bright side and take this little “break” as a chance to experiment in other ways…

For the last few of weeks, I’ve been trying my hand at eating intuitively.
Perhaps you’ve heard one of  these girls talking about it?

I’ve flirted with intuitive eating in the past, and always thought it was in interesting CONCEPT but this time, I’ve decided to commit to the idea and APPLY it to my life.
I plan on explaining more in tomorrow’s post but for now, I thought I’d share a just little something I’ve noticed over the last few weeks while becoming more “attuned” to my cravings…


So I thought, well heck, it’s Wednesday…why not go out with a BANG for the final
green-themed week of Jenn’s super fabulous blog party and post some of my favorites?

WIAW Goes Intuitively Green

Sounds like a plan!

So check out a bit of the GREEN deliciousness I’ve been enjoying lately and then hop, skip, and/or dance a jig on over to Peas & Crayons to check out all the other awesome link ups!

Pea Toast

Pea-licious toast with sprouts and almonds, broiled blood orange and runny egg

Roasted Cabbage with Avocado

Roasted coleslaw topped with pickled ginger, avocado, crispy wonton-chips, furikake and drizzled in TJ’s Island Soyaki sauce

Clean Out the Fridge Salad

Spinach topped with egg, roasted beets, apple crisps, drizzled with chestnut honey mustard and a sweet potato on the side stuffed with ricotta and FROG jam

Green Egg Sandwich with Pumpkin Cream Cheese

Toasted cinnamon raisin English muffin, microwaved spinach egg white monster “thing”, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice cream cheese

Very Stuft Mama-esque, no? 😉
If only I had thought to make her microwave English muffin!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese

Limited Edition…aka “a piece of you will die once it’s gone”  😥

Spaghetti Squash Mushroom Marinara Salad

Spinach with warm spaghetti squash mixed with hummus & nutritional yeast topped with sautéed mushrooms and onions and jarred marinara

Roasted Cabbage Salad with Smoked Salmon & Blood OrangeSpinach (promise it’s under there) topped with roasted coleslaw, smoked salmon, horseradish mustard, blood orange, and sesame seeds

Reminds me of something Laura would make! 😉

Chicken Asparagus & Tomatos

Spinach topped with wild rice and cheese stuffed chicken (a fantastic all-natural score from Sam’s…and proof that sampling works), tomatoes, and steamed asparagus drizzled with mustard/nutritional yeast sauce

Cabbage Omelette

Egg white fritatta with coleslaw, sauerkraut (because what goes better with cabbage than MORE CABBAGE?!), cilantro, and hot sauce

Sarena and Sarah approve this message dish! 😀

Green Oats

Oats with spinach and cinnamon

Egg & Falafel Burger Salad

Spinach topped with roasted coleslaw and tomatoes, topped with a falafel burger (recipe coming EVENTUALLY…this one was thawed from the freezer from a past experiment trying to replicate this burger) and a runny egg

Things I’ve learned from eating these meals:

1. I REALLY have a thing for warm salads.
2. The combination of sweet AND savory will always win me over.
3. Roasted cabbage…OMG, why did it take me so long to do this?!
4. I, apparently, CANNOT LIVE without eggs.
5. And just in case you’re wondering…yes, that falafel burger WAS vegan until I bastardized it! 😆

What’s the last green thing you ate?

What is one food you cannot live without?
