This Kiss FM promotion is your key to healthy living and tasty tips.
Buying dark leafy greens like Romaine lettuce, kale, Swiss chard and beet tops is good for the environment, especially if your store buys produce from local farmers. With little exception, buying fresh means less waste and more nutrition. And, a head of romaine or a bunch of kale has no bones, fat or gristle to waste. If you think about it, including fresh produce gives plenty of crunch and colour on our dinner plates. Naturally colorful food is a great source of vitamins and minerals. Every meal you make with living foods, preferably organic, is a bold statement and has far-reaching effects on our community; plus long term benefits for your health.
Today’s tasty tip: Wrap a ripe banana in a romaine lettuce leaf for a healthy no-waste snack soaked in antioxidants. The sweet banana offers a wonderful contrast to the crispy greens!
