This Week's Healthy Recipes

Meal #1


Green Smoothie (Orange, ginger, banana, spinach, lemon, kefir)

A refreshing green smoothie, perfect for breakfast or a midday pick-me-up!


Prep Time

5 min


2 oranges, peeled

1 thumb-sized knob of ginger

1 large banana, frozen*

1 handful spinach

1/2 lemon, peeled

1/2 cup plain kefir or yogurt


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.


*You can dice your banana the night before and freeze it in a Ziplock bag, you can also freeze multiple bananas at one time, but put them in separate bags so they don't freeze into a huge lump. If you use an unfrozen banana you can add 1/2-1 cup of ice to make it colder.


Dandelion Greens with a Kick


Dandelion greens are one of my favorite bitters! They are not for everyone, but I enjoy their unique flavor. I decided to try them sautéed instead of in a salad and it was a huge hit! Makes good use of those dandelions in the yard or you can usually find dandelion greens at the grocery or Asian market.

Soak dandelion greens in a large bowl of cold water with 1 teaspoon salt for 10 minutes. Drain.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil with 1 teaspoon salt. Cook greens until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water until chilled.

Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and red pepper flakes until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds more. Increase heat to medium-high and add dandelion greens. Continue to cook and stir until liquid is evaporated, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.

Sprinkle greens with Parmesan cheese to serve.
