I am not good at eating green stuff.
Well I like grapes :) They come in green! Granny Smith Apples :) Corn on the cob comes in a green peel, does that count?
I like peas slathered in butter and salt. And I can do a salad with trace amounts of spinach and romaine leaves, sloshing around in ranch dressing, chicken, cheese, and boiled eggs.
I understand how this is not healthy.
I take multi-vitamins . . not the same - I get it.
Last year I bought some green powder to make green juice. I forced myself to drink it for about a week. Then I gagged it up and it came out my nose (sorry, but true). I just couldn't do it after that. And the canister has just sat in my kitchen. I recently had the brain storm to buy capsules and put the green powder in to those and just swallow them. Amazon Prime has delivered the capsules, now I just have to fill them with the green powder stuff.
Well, I am trying to be healthy and try more things. Yesterday I ordered a mozzarella chicken salad from Wendy's. First of all . . . that's an expensive salad. There was pretty green leaves on the top of the salad, and white, slimy stuff under the first green layer. Surprisingly I did like the mozzarella on the salad. So I counted the whole experience a win. And I'll probably add mozzarella to salads from now on.
I have avocados sitting on the counter that have been waiting for me. I've googled different recipes to do with these things. I don't like guacamole. Using them in a chicken salad sounded possible. Today though, I tried making them in to fries. Because . . . Fries! Right? Um . . . no. I choked down about three of them drenched in ketchup. Maybe tomorrow I'll try one smashed up in the chicken salad idea.
Tonight I am thankful that I haven't given up on my green experiments. I know, I know, you're thinking, "Jess, it's only been two days!". Guess what? That's two more days then I've done before! I usually make it about 15 minutes and bail on the whole idea!
