WIAW #5

Before posting my day’s eats, in respect of this month’s green theme, I thought I’d list ten of my favorite green recipes:

Sea Salt Baked Potatoes

topped with arugula that has been dressed with a vinaigrette of

champagne vinegar, dijon mustard, lemon juice, olive oil, an egg yolk, and parmesan.

Green snacks that I enjoy are roasted and salted edamame, cucumber with hummus, kiwi and cottage cheese, and roasted brussels sprouts with a dipping sauce. I used to love green apples slathered thickly with peanut butter, but now I’m on a red apple and almond butter kick. Nevertheless, I’ll be sure to continue posting my green foods throughout this month. Keep posted!
