A Healthier Mindset: Eat More Greens!

When I think about eating healthier, my mindset is always about “what can I add to my diet?” vs. “what can I take away?” And for me that generally means loading up on vegetables (especially green things) and yummy lean proteins like chicken, pork, and fish. A big takeaway from working with Blue Apron for the past few months has been how easy it is to sneak in a LOT of veggies. Because as much as I love salad and steamed broccoli, sometimes I want something a little richer (especially as it gets colder!).

Two recipes I made this month that I really loved were Blue Apron’s Sheet Pan Chipotle Pork Roast (with butternut squash and brussels sprouts) and their Garlic & Olive Tilapia (over stewed chickpeas & vegetables). Both were DELICIOUS. I talked about the pork roast on stories last week but I loved how easy it was to make (and clean up) and the combo of brussels sprouts + squash was scrumptious). I felt the same about the Garlic & Olive Tilapia. It felt like I was eating a delicious, decadent Italian meal and I was shocked how much spinach it used. Also, I finally nailed the tilapia as mine is always dry – it turns out the key was to cook it maybe a minute less than I thought I needed to and to add just a little more olive oil when I flipped it over.

If you use my Blue Apron link, they have an amazing offer right now: $100 off your first 5 boxes. (Only a day left – ends 1/29!)

Blue Apron makes it easy to cook delicious, balanced recipes at home.

I love that they call out the wellness menu options (nutritionist-approved recipes!) so I can quickly select those.

The wellness menu features fresh produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, and natural sweeteners (I’ve been cooking with honey a lot which is new for me!). AND MORE VEGGIES!!!

And besides eating healthier, it’s also fun. I have learned so much from cooking with Blue Apron (especially with regard to sauces and glazes… I just feel more comfortable in the kitchen and often replicate Blue Apron sauces with other things I’m cooking). If you are feeling like you are in a cooking rut (or maybe want to learn a new skill or two), I can’t recommend it enough!

You’d never know it but there is a whole salad worth of spinach in this one!

    I used a meal delivery service a couple of years ago and loved it. It got me out of my usual recipes and introduced me to some new things. I now make several of them on the regular. This fish over beans and tomato and greens look SO GOOD.

    I sneak spinach into everything too–smoothies, sauces, pesto. I throw handfuls into my pasta water for the last 30 seconds of boiling. I lay a bed of raw spinach before I put takeout chinese or thai on top. I also love to sneak a cup of frozen riced veggies (broccoli or cauliflower) into everything too. You can’t taste it and it bulks up the meal and your fiber intake without adding many calories. I must try this blue apron meal. It looks amazing!
