Get a net.
I’m about to toss you some seriously scientific shizzle.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
-Sir Issac Newton
Applied to my life, this means that for every good action, there is bound to be some sort of bad reaction.
A few examples:
Action: Promise a month of recipes that will convince you to get your greens in.
Reaction: My computer crashes and I can’t blog for two weeks.
Action: Work overtime to get some extra green.
Reaction: Spend extra income on car repairs.
Action: Dog vomits unknown green substance on carpet after eating kitchen scraps.
Reaction: Dog proceeds to re-ingest green regurgitation.
Action: Plant garden to reap the rewards of fresh greens.
Reaction: Get a lush garden full of green……weeds.
Action: Wear lovely, new green top in accordance with new dress code to work.
Reaction: Have three adults and one child call you a leprechaun and wish you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
Action: Spend 1.5 hours shelling pistachios to make pistachio butter.
Reaction: Boss gags while tasting it.
Action: Have a refrigerator filled with green produce.
Reaction: That is green because its moldy after being a little over-zealous at the Farmer’s Market.
Use up the non-moldy greens to make Thai Inspired Broccoli Slaw
Meet the greens:
Thai Green Curry Paste
Baby Bok Choi
Prepared broccoli slaw is a tasty and easy way to get those healthy greens in. Give it some ethnic flair with a spicy green curry dressing that takes only seconds to put together. If you can’t find baby bok choi, go ahead and use regular green cabbage or leave it out all together.
Thai Broccoli Slaw
1 (12 oz) bag broccoli slaw
2 heads baby bok choi, shredded or 2 cups shredded cabbage
3 chopped green onions + additional for garnish
1 (4 oz) jar green curry paste (found in the ethnic food aisle)
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil
salt + pepper, to taste
Put broccoli slaw, bok choi, and green onions in a large bowl.
Whisk together green curry paste, vinegar, and coconut oil.
Pour dressing over the greens.
Toss to coat.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Reaction: Feel satisfied that another month of challenges has been completed.
And when some science geek gets all nerdy on you and tells you that this is a laughable example of Newton’s third law,
react by punching him in the pocket protecter and tell him to stop being such a douche.
Sorry about the language.
Perhaps I need something to wash away the series of unfortunate events that left a bad taste in my mouth.
Cheers to keepin’ it clean and gettin’ in all those greens!
