A Spinach Accent

Yes, Spinach - not Spanish. ;)

Apple Jack Smoothie (but I forgot about adding a banana - oops!) and walnuts:
Mock Tuna Sandwich on spelt bread and spinach.
A Sarah-inspired quesadilla: refried beans, spinach, Daiya shreds, avocado, and green chile in between two brown rice tortillas.
 
Tomorrow: giving Spinach the day off.  Calling in Kale to cover her shifts.

  1. Oooh what a lovely spinach filled day! I'm so impressed that you worked some in to every meal :) The apple jack smoothie sounds so interesting! I'm definitely going to try that!

    Yay I'm so glad you tried the quesadilla!! How did you like the combo? I usually add avocado to mine too but didn't have any. I also used to love spicy refried beans but I can't find them anymore. Wah! I should just add chilis like you did :)

    Yay for kale!!! I won't be able to comment until I get back so have a great week!!

    1. I hope your trip is absolutely amazing! I still want to try the quesadilla your way, but I am out of Tofutti! Adding green chile would definitely make your beans spicy. :)

      I have liked nearly all of her recipes, and can tweak those that need it! I haven't checkout Happy Herbivore Abroad as of yet, but I'll see what it's all about soon.

  2. tomorrow is may day and I think spinach is doing heavy duty; it's sweet of you to give her a rest day.
    I got my blender back the other day and am SO pumped to see everyone's smoothies, instead of jealous. Was it still good without the banana?
    Did you make or buy the mock tuna? It looks great.

    1. Well, she kind of hand to work anyway as I had the exact same lunch today. Ha ha!

      I wish that I used a banana just to smooth it all out. It was a little applesauce-ish in texture.

      It's from the Happy Herbivore Cookbook, but it's also linked above!

    1. The mock tuna is pretty good, which is why I've been having it for lunch all week! I still have a fourth serving ready, but I'm going to have something different tomorrow - I don't want to bore my readers. Ha ha!

    1. They were all quite enjoyable. Have you tried spelt bread before? It's really, really delicious.

    1. I thought about it for awhile. Posts tend to write themselves, but titles are always a struggle for me! Ha ha!

      I'm happy about incorporating more green, now to just make it a variety of green. . . :)

  6. Your last line cracked me up!

    I read somewhere that people who had a taste for greens tended to live longer - which means you must be immortal I think!

    What's in your mock tuna?
