New Green on the Scene!

1 Comment

WOW, I am so excited!  Trader Joe’s has finally opened its new store in my neighborhood.  I could not believe the price of the organic produce.  I am lovin it!

While shopping for my weekly greens I came across Mache, it’s fairly new to the green scene and not widely found. Mache has a mild nutty flavor, some of you may know it as corn salad, rapunzel, field salad, or lamb’s lettuce, this comes from its resemblance to the size and shape of a lamb’s tongue. It is actually not a lettuce but a herb. ($1.99 a bag).

Mache’s nutritional benefits are that the omega-3’s it provides helps to lower triglycerides and improve HDL (good) cholesterol levels, and this reduces inflammation and helps with the risk of cancer and heart disease. Mache also contains vitamin C, iron, folic acid and potassium.

Mache can be used in soups,sandwiches, rice, sauces, omelets, steamed and served as a veggie side dish much like spinach and of course you can use it in salads and add it to your green smoothies.

I made a tasty veggie pizza.

AMT Sandwich (Avocado, Mache and Tomato)

I have also been adding Mache to my daily green smoothies!

Hi, I'm Celeste 'm a no flesh eating vegetarian who loves to run, cook and eat good wholesome food, living a healthy lifestyle has always been important to me. In 2011 I became a vegetarian because I was experiencing digestive problems it seemed after every meal and I just didn't feel good. After reading Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr I was convinced that eliminating all meat from my diet and adding more real foods was worth a try. Kris's book taught me so much about the power of whole fresh fruits and veggies, and their impact on our bodies. After a few months I started to feel the difference and I have never turned back. My hope is to share something that helps you on your journey to being Whole Body Healthy! Follow me on Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
