The concept for the book, as you can see from the title, is helping you find ways to get more greens into your life. From breakfast (like the above pictured waffles) to dessert Jess finds healthy and delicious ways to pack in those greens.
With over 100 recipe, nearly all of them accompanied by large beautiful photos taken by the talented Jackie Sabon (Vegan Yack Attack), there is something for everyone. Among these nutrient-packed recipes you’ll find:
- Broccoli and Greens “Quiche”
- Cool Ranch Kale Chips
- Shredded Rainbow Salad (recipe to follow)
- Deconstructed Sushi Bowl
- Chocolate Hazelnut Avocado Torte
- Lemon and Parsley Olive Oil Cake
with chapters ranging from “Smoothies & Breakfast” to “Green Entrees” to “Green Cakes and Desserts”.
And yes, the desserts look DELICIOUS.
Greens 24/7 begins with a thorough introduction to over 30 different types of greens you’ll find throughout the book. In this section you’ll discover the health benefits of each green as well as tips on how to cook and eat them. This is followed by a “Typical Day” Greens Meal Plans which gives you several different types of meal plans like:
- For parents trying to feed their kids greens
- For the super busy, no-time-to-slave-over-a-meal cook
- For the health-conscious Trying to maximize nutritious content
- For those who love to entertain
And if you have ever read one of my cookbook reviews, you probably already know that meal plans are my favorite parts of any good cookbook.
Like her blog, this book is creative, inventive, and gorgeous. If you love good food, then this book is for you. Everything I’ve tried so far has been a huge hit and I can’t wait to keep digging in to this beautiful work of art.
