When I think of Easter desserts I think of carrot cake. I’m writing this a few weeks before Easter self isolating at home thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic and I know that I most likely will not be able to see my family for a while, and definitely not by Easter. I was feeling homesick and so I opened up one of my mom’s cookbooks that she gave to me a while ago.
I decided to try drinking 16 oz of celery juice for a week. If you haven’t heard of celery juice, it became super popular after the Medical Medium (who isn’t a doctor or nutritionist and apparently receives health advice from a spirit??) wrote a book about all of its possible benefits, like gut health, reduced bloating, and detoxing abilities. Some of his claims seem a bit outlandish and dangerous (like that celery juice can cure ADHD or eating disorders) but I was curious to test if it helps reduce bloating and improve digestion.
You can’t go wrong with a good soup. I’ve been loving making this cream of spinach soup lately because it is not very time consuming and is so hearty, packed with flavor, and nutritious (bonus!). It’s also a wonderful way to get some greens in to your diet and can be meal prepped in advance!
It takes a lot for me to eat a salad. They’re a great way to get greens in but I just find salads boring. Most salads. This one, though, I love and actually crave.
This week I wanted to show how easy it is to get your greens in! Starting with the classic tofu scramble. If you’ve never heard of tofu scramble it’s a good alternative to scrambled eggs and an easy way to get protein in. Plus something about crumbling up the tofu with your hands is just so satisfying.
