Organic girl protein greens
For this recipe, I use organicgirl Protein Greens. The greens are exclusive to organicgirl because they include sweet pea leaves which are naturally higher in protein than other greens. The sweet pea leaves are blended with other baby greens like spinach and kale. The blend contains 5g of plant protein for an extra boost to smoothies, salads, shakes and more. Add a few handfuls to a breakfast frittata for a protein packed meal that everyone will love. Cook organicgirl protein greens in a skillet with diced onion and chopped summer squash. Add eggs and goat cheese before baking in the oven. If you love organicgirl as much as I do, don’t forget to follow on Instagram for more meal inspiration.
protein greens blend
The organicgirl protein greens blend includes a mix of greens with sweet pea leaves. Depending on the season and availability, the blend may include the follow greens.
- Sweet pea leaves – these leaves add crunch and mild flavor. Fresh sweet peas are crisp and versatile. Use it as a garnish or topping salads, sandwiches and more.
- Baby spinach – loaded with nutrients and antioxidants, but low in calories. It’s one of the most versatile leafy greens.
- Baby bok choy – the flavor is mellow with a mild, peppery spice. It’s similar to cabbage.
- Baby kale – one of our favorite greens is versatile and can be eaten in just about anything. The small greens are great for a salad or cooked into any dish.
- Mizuna – a mild tasting green that can be eaten raw or cooked. It’s a member of the mustard family and is rich in vitamins but low in calories.
- Tatsoi – the mild mustardy greens are the perfect addition to this blend. It’s versatile and you can use it anywhere you would use spinach.
