Two for Tuesday

Why not?  I got up to make my SpinachJunkie breakfast and thought; while I’m here I’ll make lunch too.  So that’s two ideas for me to share with you for your spinach challenge of twenty-one days to form a habit of eating spinach every day.

I started my day with a simple and traditional breakfast of eggs and chicken sausages, substituting bread with a side of steamed spinach.  For lunch, or dinner, or to take with me on-the-go, I made a tuna and pasta salad to serve over a bed of fresh spinach.

Now I have my day clear for everything else on my to do list, after #1 Eating Spinach, of course!  Being back on the wagon of my spinach habit reminds me of how much better I feel when I eat better, and that in itself is positive reinforcement.

Cheerio and xo!
