Over the last few years, I have really started paying more attention to exactly what I put into my body. I try to pay careful attention to the labels of the foods I am eating (and feeding my family) and I limit my intake of preservatives and heavily processed foods.
I am far from "crunchy", but I do try to be mindful of what I serve my family. I even went as far as planting a small garden in the back yard. Thank goodness we aren't reliant solely on the garden for nourishment, as this year has been more of a learning experience, than a bountiful harvest, but fun nonetheless. Next year, I hope to "have all the kinks worked out", but in the meantime, I'm glad I have organicgirl greens.
Organicgirl® is a small group of women and men in California's fertile Salinas Valley who want to offer you the best organic produce ever. Their goal is to provide delicious, fresh, organically grown, sustainable produce, shipped in 100% recycled/recyclable containers. They wash their produce 3 times before it even gets packaged, so all you need to do, is figure out what to do with it. Here's what I did with mine...
Since finding out about my husband's diabetes, we have become a bunch of salad eating fools... chicken salad, taco salad, taco chicken salad, cobb salad, BLT salad, tuna salad and one of my favorites, crab salad. This dish is super easy to throw together, only requires a few ingredients and can easily be served as a main dish.
I used a head of iceberg (coarsely chopped), some organicgirl romaine heart leaves (torn into bite sized pieces), some freshly grated Parmesan cheese, a little shredded Mozzarella, 1 package of lump crab meat, a few croutons and a sprinkle of dried basil. I usually dress this with a half/half mix of honey mustard and Ranch, but you can use whatever. Another way to add some fresh greens to your kids diet, is with every busy Mom's favorite... fish sticks.
Yes, fish sticks don't have to evoke moans and groans from your family. With this easy fish taco recipe, even the hubby will eat it. (it will be on whole wheat, low carb tortillas, if he has the sugarbetes, but he'll eat it nonetheless). Check out the recipe below...
