Easy Green Lunch

As you may have noticed, there are no amounts on this recipe! Use as little or as much of each ingredient as you want. Kale, tomatoes, and vegetable broth tend to be higher in pesticides or fungicides; therefore, organic ingredients are a better option. This meal is savory and takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. It’s a quick, go-to meal on busy days.

Tip of the Day

Your favorite drink tastes just as good in a smaller cup! Select smaller cans, cups, or glasses instead of large or super-sized options. Check the serving size and number of servings in the can, bottle, or container. Know how many calories you’re drinking so you don’t get more than you need.
