Spinach Spaghetti Salad

I'm a huge fan of using up leftovers in the most delicious way possible.

Rich Taiwanese spaghetti sauce pairs gorgeously with crisp spinach in this delectable and ridiculously easy dish.

What makes Taiwanese spaghetti different from normal spaghetti? All the stuff they put in it. Regular additions growing up included celery and carrot. I've also had eggplant and zucchini...and even potato!  It also tends to be runnier than Western marinara sauce...probably because nobody has heard of tomato paste.

It's a lot more nutritious than your normal run-of-the-mill sauce from a bottle, that's for sure!

Recipe for the sauce below~

Grapefruit-Sprout Smoothie + Why You Should Rotate Greens

Make sure to switch up your greens every week or so to avoid overdosing and causing alkaloid buildup. WAIT WE'VE BEEN EATING POISON OUR WHOLE LIVES?! Calm down. You're not dead yet. And it's only a little bit.

Perfect Green Smoothie! Surprisingly DELICIOUS

So Sherene made me my first green smoothie earlier this summer and OMG IT WAS SO GOOD.
Thick and creamy and sweet (actually a little too sweet for my tastes!) and you seriously could NOT taste anything green in it at all!

Determined to recreate the experience I took my immersion blender, several handfuls of spinach and made my own.  JUST AS DELICIOUS.

After some experimentation I've found the PERFECT starter smoothie. It's great for the uninitiated and uses only TWO very common ingredients you probably already have in your house.

The key is to BLEND YOUR GREENS AND LIQUID FIRST until they are perfectly smooth. This prevents leafy bits and guarantees a silky-smooth drink.

Trust me. I hate chunks. And there are no chunks in my smoothies.
