Eat Your Greens

April 26, 2014

20140426-080121.jpg My fab organic grower friend Margaret has been bringing me the most awesome baggies of greens each week. I thought I would share some of the images as they are just so pretty to look at. If I painted, I would be painting up a storm with all this natural beauty.

20140426-080403.jpg What I find so interesting is how much the visual appeal of food contributes to wanting to eat it. That saying of we eat with our eyes first before ever taking a bite is so very true. The above arugula and spinach were just incredible. Truly, the best spinach I have ever eaten. The last image is of curly cress, which neither of us have had before. Margaret said it would be lovely added to an egg salad sandwich. Which sounds amazing. We had it mixed in with the other two for a pretty out of this world mixed greens salad.

A happy, happy Saturday and week-end to you all!
