These Toppling Creations Can Be Your Go-To Lunch

Green smoothies are everywhere. Thousands of recipes offer intriguing ways to blend leafy greens, such as kale, chard, and spinach, with fruits, plant milks, chocolate, ice, and more for a thick, cold, satisfying drink. Often filling enough to be a meal on their own, green smoothies can be a delicious part of a whole green sandwich fixings.jpgfoods, plant-based diet.

Green smoothies often aim to be slightly sweet. People who are not much into leafy green vegetables can enjoy them, because the fruit and other ingredients mask the taste of the greens. So even if you are shy about leafy greens, you can get a healthy dose of raw vegetables in your drink.

Green sandwiches are different. Green leafy veggies are the stars and their taste and texture are fundamental to enjoying the sandwich.

Leafy green vegetables are wonders of taste, nutrition, and appealing color. Calorie for calorie, these foods pack in more vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals (beneficial substances found only in plants) than anything else you can eat. These vegetables also give you omega-3 fatty acids.

I would add sliced cucumbers & shredded carrots. :-) Another possible spread for the bread is mustard, if the person likes it, since it is fat free. Thanks for pointing out about becoming aware of the # of fat grams in what your readers eat. Another choice in place of bread can be using a large collard leaf or red cabbage leaf as the "wrap". Gets even messier than w/bread, but is a good option now & then.

Organic whole wheat pita bread is a wonderful option too! Make a salad & just pour it into the pita!! Drizzle some low fat dressing into it.
