I will be writing a post a day for all 30 days. I hope you'll join me in writing every day about health. It's going to be a lot of fun and I'd love to see what you have to say about each of the topics, too. All you have to do to join is sign up here: Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge and you'll be able to start posting once April rolls around. Looking forward to writing with you!

Fast Food Anyone

I am a huge fan of greens. So this afternoon, when I needed a quick fix snack, I grabbed a bag of kale from the fridge, filled a small frying pan, add just a pinch of water, and set it to steam on the stove. With in about a minute they kale was a nice bright green and just slightly wilted. While a was pouring into a bowl, I had to laugh. There are times when we are hungry NOW and we usually will grab junk instead of waiting for a decent meal to cook. Yet, here I was with a healthy meal in less time then the time it would take me to put my shoes on and head out for fast food. Topped with a few nuts or seeds and I've also created a complete protein. How's that for fast food!
