I know nutritionists recommend eating a variety of colors of fruits and vegetables. As I was eating a bowl of Froot Loops for dinner last night, trying to justify the colorful cereal as a “fruit,” I thought that maybe I should re-evaluate dinner. I do enjoy cooking, but don’t always have the time – hence, Froot Loops for dinner. I know spinach is one of those “super foods,” so I decided to try to incorporate it into my diet. I tried a recipe for spinach mashed potatoes from Emeril a while back, and I loved being able to add a healthy kick to this starch. Plus, the little kid in me likes the idea of green mashed potatoes.
So, today I whipped up a batch of green mashed potatoes and turkey meatballs. It was almost as good as Froot Loops!
