Beets & Broccoli for Breakfast

imgs_beetsbroccoliHow many times have you stored left over veggies in your fridge from last night’s dinner yet never got around to eating them?

Weeks ago, I discarded nearly $15 in old produce and I’m not doing that anymore. In an effort to waste less food and money plus get my super nutrients at the start of the day,Β Β I ‘m eating leftover veggies for breakfast. This morning, I re-heated a bit of broccoli & beets in a glass pan while I prepared for my day. (I’m no longer a fan of the microwave.) The process took a total of 2 minutes. While checking email, Facebook, and the weather, I ate a yummy bowl of beets & broccoli with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (ex voo), salt and pepper.

I’m writing from work now because as I climbed my usual eight flights of stairs today, I noticed how SUPER my body is feeling. Quite different from the days when I’ve had a bagel or toast for breakfast. Try eating your leftover veggies for breakfast so nothing goes to waste or the compost bin.Β Β Let me know if you feel any significant changes.

and speaking of beets (well beats), I’m working on a new podcast this week so please look out!

Thanks for reading and Happy Wednesday!!

  • During my farm stay in Bahia, Brazil years ago, I read the 1977 book, How to Save Your Own Life by Erica Jong. The other day I came across the notes I copied from the book: 1) Renounce useless guilt 2) Don't make a cult of suffering 3) Live in the NOW (or at least the soon) 4) Always do the thing you fear the most; courage is an acquired taste like caviar 5) Trust ALL joy 6) If the evil eye fixes you in its gaze; look elsewhere 7) Get ready to be 87 years old. So splendid. Happy Free Friday!! #selflove #sunshine #books #1977 #ericajong #ridingthewave #onlyyoucansaveyourownlife
