I aim to eat vegetables at every meal. Guess how I do it. Being LAZY!
Here are my favorite 5 LAZY VEGETABLES:
SIMPLE GREEN JUICE
Blend 1 cup cold water with 1 cup spinach or kale and a squeeze of lemon. If you want it a little sweeter, add 1/2 cup of fresh chopped green apple or 1/2 cup of frozen unsweetened berries! And never skip the lemon. It makes it taste like lemonade! PS: Add a shake of cayenne for an extra kick. Video Alert! Watch me make the simplest green juice ever. Click HERE.
Years ago, I was at a burger restaurant. The side options were the usuals of fries, house salad…and then I saw: “Veggie Dippers.” Man those sounded FUN, so I ordered them. It ended up being just a bunch of cut veggies & dip, but because of the fun name…I totally enjoyed them. I now serve “Veggie Dippers” regularly with lunch & dinner. Easy. Fun. Try it with cashew ranch dressing.
THE GREEN BASE
Put greens in a bowl & then put whatever you are going to eat on top. Done. Get genius GREEN BASE ideas HERE.
CRUNCHY CABBAGE SALAD
In a large bowl mix shredded cabbage, chopped green onion, sliced almonds, salt and pepper. Whisk apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and honey in a separate bowl and toss with cabbage mix. Let sit for 15 minutes before serving. Make a big batch, lasts 5 days in the fridge. Great side salad or wrap filling w/ your favorite protein. Video Alert! Watch me make crunchy cabbage salad.

MASSAGED KALE SALAD
Massage chopped raw kale leaves, fresh lemon juice, olive oil, and sea salt with your hands. The lemon & massage make the typically tough kale leaves super tender & delish. Top it with your favorite chopped nuts or seeds. Make a big batch, lasts 5 days in the fridge. Great with BBQ Chicken + Cauliflower Mac & Cheese. PS: Massaged kale is even perfect for tossing into morning eggs.
Let’s keep the LAZY theme going, shall we?
