Veg Bad Week 8?
Has it really been a month since I've posted some Veg Bad goodness???? Well, I must say that when we had our staycation, it became infinitely harder to keep my veg intake up. One thing that I learned was that it's best for us to plan out our meals weekly, or else veg will fall to the wayside, even if we remember to eat it, it's only half heartedly.
But we did got to a couple of restaurants while on staycation and some that had great veg options included Rebecca's of Northville. I had a spinach, mushroom and egg croissant for breakfast double YUM! We also went to El Patio in Livonia. I had their potato burrito, not veg, but definitely plant based and tasty. We also went to Aubree's in Livonia and had the dinner for two, the salad was phenomenal considering it was not the star of the show, it was very well done, not an after thought.
Now, for me to share one of my favorite recipes from this past month. I think it will have to be...
1 bunch of asparagus
splash of water
fresh ground black pepper
Cut about an inch and half off the bottoms of the asparagus. Place in a glass loaf pan with a healthy splash of water (any microwavable container that will fit the asparagus will work, but the glass loaf pan is perfect). Microwave for about 5 minutes (I have a fresh veg setting on our microwave, I hit that and 3 cups and it always comes up 5 minutes, but I have no idea what power it's actually cooking on). When the microwave is done, drizzle the asparagus with olive oil, salt and pepper, toss to coat and serve.
