Eat Your Greens!

“Eat your greens!” as if you haven’t heard this phrase a million times already. With the best of intentions, we buy packages of pre-mixed salads only to watch them spoil within days.

Let’s be honest. No one wants to eat a boring, dry salad. So, it wilts away in the fridge.

Well, not this time! Thank you Flora Health for sending a couple of your tastiest culinary oils to try. #sponsored Read on to see how I incorporated them so I could eat more greens!

Staying true to eating healthier, I’m adding more salads to the menu using Tupperware’s Salad Spinner and Fridgesmart containers. I’m not talking boring iceberg lettuce salads here! Mixing various types of lettuces with flavorful vinaigrettes made with Flora Health culinary oils have made a tasteful difference.

For health safety reasons, remember to wash leafy greens. The spinner is not only easy to use but also effective. Remove lettuce from the store’s container to give it a wash. Rinse it in the colander under running water, place the colander inside the spinner, close the lid and spin to dry.

Keep lettuce fresh longer with Tupperware’s Fridgesmart containers. The venting allows for just the right amount of air and moisture to prevent early wilting and spoiling.

Experiment with culinary oils to add bursts of flavor! I’ve been excited to whip up variations of vinaigrettes using Flora Health Pumpkin Seed Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. After trying several ideas, one of my favorites is a mix of Pumpkin Seed oil, apple cider vinegar, and a bit of turmeric and honey. Delicious!

I encourage you to mix ingredients to your tastes. Start with 1 part vinegar to 3 parts oil then the rest is up to you. If you love chili peppers, sprinkle some flakes into the mixture. If you want a sweeter taste then add maple syrup. Click this link to for examples to get you started.
