No Green Goes to Waste

I was thinning my beets a few weeks ago and thought, "Hey, I should eat these baby leaves instead of composting them." Maybe everyone else naturally knows to eat them, but I sure thought it was a brilliant plan. So here is my tuna sandwich topped with baby chard and baby beet greens—my first taste of the garden! Nothing compares to eating produce you grew with your own two hands.

1 slice sprouted Ezekiel bread (gluten lectins are destroyed in sprouting, but read ingredient label carefully)
Albacore tuna
Tomato slices
Baby chard
Baby beet greens
Any other greens you'd like
Pepper to taste

Yum! Okay, needing advice. Which would you recommend buying first: "Dinner at your door", or "The 28 day cleansing program"?? I want to invest in one of them, I just don't know which one! Thanks and love you! :) LOVE the blog! Keep it coming!

Hey Miss Tori. It depends how hardcore you're wanting to go with your diet. Dinner at Your Door has easy gourmet meals that are healthy but with meat, dairy, and bread. The 28-Day Cleanse has easy simple meals that are without meat, dairy, and bread, and are more Asian-based recipes. So since you're not in terrible health, Dinner at Your Door would be more fun for you since you have room to be flexible with what you eat. I still would say limit your meat, dairy, and bread though. Love you, girl!

Do you put anything in your tuna? or eat it plain?

A year ago I ate it plain. Now I add a little mayo. That's how I splurge nowadays.
