New Weekly Health Challenge

And here we were letting you off easy for a spell.

Here’s your weekly health challenge, Apples:

Find a way to work vegetables into your breakfasts this week. Now we sleep at night because we know none of you are eating layered grease, aka egg sandwiches. But are you getting a serving of vegetables at every meal? It’s a smart goal.

A few ways to outdo Popeye (easy…he didn’t know about arugula, now did he?):

– Toss last night’s leftover dinner veggies into your scrambled eggs (thanks, Crystal!).

– Enjoy tomato slices with olive oil, sea salt, and basil leaves for breakfast.

– If you’re not someone who prefers a sweeter taste first thing, add some olives, asparagus tops, sundried tomatoes, leeks or scallions, and balsamic vinegar to your plain yogurt for a filling and flavorful breakfast.

– Fill dessert ramekins with a small handful of arugula, broccoli florets, or peas. Pour whisked egg over vegetables (about 1.5 eggs per). Season with freshly-ground black pepper and sea salt. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes (give or take). Garnish with a dollop of sour cream or a sprinkling of shredded cheese.

Let us know what you try this week!

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I noted in your kitchen tips how to clean a microwave. We haven’t had/used a microwave for almost ten years because we heard back then that they were harmful to foods (vitamins, enzymes, etc. that are heated in them). I’m kinda surprised you advocate this mean machine.

  2. If you’re having a smoothie for breakfast, you can throw some veggies in there without very much affect to the taste. Carrots are especially delicious in there!
