Hello, Healthy Eating!



The Chef: Brooke

The Menu
: A heaping pile of Brussels sprouts, a Granny Smith apple, toast, and almond butter. That's a mouthful! (Pun intended.)

The Goods: I probably should be on the cover of the 2010 January+February "Hello Healthy!" issue of VegNews, because that's how good I feel after this lunch. We recently received a giant shipment of Wilderness Poets nut butters, and I was looking for an excuse to try the Roasted Almond Butter variety. That's where my Granny Smith apple came in handy—apples and nut butter is a match made in heaven. I also sampled some Dave's Killer Bread that our fearless leader Colleen Holland brought back from the Portland Veg Fest this weekend, and at just 75 calories a slice, it was amazing! I moved onto some steamed Brussels sprouts, a treat that I loved as a child with plenty of vinegar, just like my dad, and then enjoyed this surprisingly hot Tuesday with a little stroll by the beach. Got to get that vitamin D.

Dave's Killer Bread RULES! How surprised was I to find a vegan sliced bread at the local grocery chain last month? I love how many seeds are not just on top but all the way through! :D Mm, Brussels sprouts with vinegar- sounds great!

You have made really nice blog so that people can know about various recipes. But I like that you have included healthy recipe as well so that people can stay healthy by making that type of dish. The above one is truly good recipe and I think it is much more healthy as it is full of green vegetables.
