Greens 24/7: Delicious Recipes for Green Veg at Every Meal, Review and Giveaway.

I have missed reviewing cookbooks on my blog, the last cook book I reviewed was in early January and now as we are heading towards the last week in February, I have missed writing about glossy pages full of recipes which makes me drool. I was sent this book, Greens 24/7 by blogger Jessica Nadel in  early December, which was perfect for looking at ideas and recipes to make in 2015 when we are all trying to eat healthier. I have to credit this book for finding a love of making juices and smoothies for breakfast instead of my usual fare of cereal or porridge. This book contains 100 easy vegan recipes, which to a meat lover is a pleasant surprise to me as I did not realise vegan recipes could be so versatile.
The front cover instantly had me sold as this features: several juices, a burger, chocolate cake and a pizza all which are vegan! For those who have never cooked primarily with green vegetables, there is a handy green fact file with the different types of greens, alongside recommended recipes which can be used making these recipes. For example, green vegetable kale, can be used to make cherry-kale, quencher smoothie, kale Waldorf salad with avocado, kale chips, kale and kabocha enchiladas verde and sweet massaged kale and fruit salad. Not sure how to eat greens throughout the day? Well there is a "typical day" of green recipes for: the parent trying to feed their kids green, for the super busy, for the health conscious and for those who love to entertain.

  32. I do a lot of vegetarian recipes but my favourite is my mushroom lasagne. It doesn't sound very inspiring but it is a special recipe from an old cook book. I've served it to dedicated meat eaters and they love it too. I don't do it that often though as it takes 2 hours from start to finish!
