You’ve likely heard Kermit the Frog’s lament that “it’s not easy being green.” Have you ever thought that it’s not easy eating green? Here at Blendtec, green is one of our favorite food colors—because of the great taste of green foods and because of the many health benefits (for example, check out why you should include spinach in your diet). Maybe you associate green with broccoli and aren’t a fan of that fiber-packed veggie.
That’s okay—I readily admit that I loathe avocados and avoid them like nothing else. But I do love many other green foods. Here’s a sampling of the possibilities: artichokes, asparagus, brussels sprouts, cabbage, celery, cucumbers, green apples, green beans, green grapes, green peppers, honeydew, kale, kiwi, limes, pears, peas, spinach, sprouts, and zucchini. And don’t forget about flavorful herbs, which have many health benefits of their own.
If you’re still a bit skeptical about eating green—or just looking for some new ideas—check out these recipes, which cover everything from main dishes to snacks to treats for your skin!
