The green veggies are where the wealth of health lives, but lawd they don’t exactly compete with Ben or Jerry in the taste department, so imma help with that.  I eat kale, spinach, broccoli and green beans on the regular, here’s how I do it…

KALE

Step 1.  Wash kale in white vinegar and water (I put this little mixture in a spray bottle to make my life easier ¾ vinegar to ¼ water)  and remove the leaves from the stem.

Step 2.  Dry off leaves and store in salad spinner

Step 3.  Take said leaves out of salad spinner, place in a bowl then massage with Keith’s Crack Sauce.  

Recipe:

  • 1 Bunch of Cilantro

  • 2 large Garlic Cloves

  • 1 Cup Raw Cashews (soak for at least 12 hours if you do not have a high powered blender)

  • 1/4c EVOO

  • 2T lime juice

  • 1/2c unsweetened almond milk

  • 1T maple syrup

  • 1t sea or Himalayan salt

  • Dash of cayenne pepper  (more if you like it hot, hot, hot)

Place all in ingredients in blender and blend until creamy.  

Lasts for up to one week in fridge.

Step 4.  Add a handful of high quality, fresh parmesan + a pitted date cut into tiny pieces.

Step 5.  Pat yourself on the back… you’re fucking eating kale and enjoying yourself.

SPINACH

Step 1.  Buy Organic Girl baby spinach.  I swear to Pricilla it stays fresher longer and it’s the only one I trust not to wash myself.  

Step 2.  Lightly drizzle your serving with an easy balsamic dressing.  

Recipe:

  • 2T dijon mustard

  • 2T balsamic vinegar

  • 2T maple syrup

  • 8T EVOO

  • Dash of salt & pepper

Put all ingredients in a sealed container and shake to your heart’s content

Step 3.  Sprinkle with goat cheese crumbles and dried cranberries

BROCCOLI 

I’ve been known to snack on these instead of crackers and I hate broccoli.  Just sayin’...

Step 1.  Cut into florets + Preheat oven to 425

Step 2.  Wash with vinegar and water solution (same one used to bathe sir Kale)

Step 3.  Dry off Mr. Broccoli.

Step 4.  Spread zi broccoli out on a parchment lined cookie sheet, drizzle broccoli in avocado oil and sprinkle with garlic powder, pepper & Himalayan salt.

Step 5. Bake for 30-45 min depending on out crispy you likey.

GREEN BEANS 

these taste like French fries if you close your eyes real tight.

Step 1.  Buy washed & trimmed organic green beans (Whole Foods offers such things)

Step 2.  Preheat oven to 425

Step 3.  Cut open bag and dump le beans on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Step 4. drizzle beans in avocado oil and sprinkle with garlic powder, pepper & Himalayan salt.
