Check out this page for some orchid care info. Some people are intimidated by orchids, but you really needn't be. If I can do it, you can do it. And the beauty is truly worth the effort. |
So how about a healthy recipe to cap off the night? I made some delicious black eyed peas with sauteed greens the other night. This dish is flavorful, wholesome and full of fiber, protein and other nutrients.
Black-Eyed Peas & Beet Greens
1 c. cooked black-eyed peas
2-3 cups chopped beet greens and stems
1/2 lg red pepper, chopped
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. minced garlic
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 c. vegetable broth (or water)
2 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
1 Tbs. toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
salt and pepper to taste
1. Add olive oil and minced garlic to large skillet on medium heat. Add beet greens and stems and stir to incorporate flavors.
2. Add vegetable broth and seasoning and cook until greens begin to wilt.
3. Add black-eyed peas and red pepper to saute pan and continue to stir.
4. Finish off with apple cider vinegar and cook for a few more minutes allowing it to slightly reduce.
**This entire cooking process should take no more than 10 minutes. You don't want to kill the greens. I enjoy my greens just barely wilted so that I'm getting as many live nutrients and enzymes as possible.
Served with a side of quinoa or brown rice and topped with toasted pepitas. Enjoy!
My juice of the day is another new recipe. I call it...Sweet Clover Juice
1 lg. cucumber
1/2 c. pineapple
5 leaves romaine lettuce
1 lg. broccoli stem
sprinkle of cinnamon
