pot.

Then, after they've simmered for a while and have softened up, I'll take out the whole portions of the greens and the onion/zucchini and throw everything into a big blender. Then I blend the greens smooth with the onion and pour the mixture back into the simmering tomato sauce or soup. Of course, my tomato sauce meals usually involve some grass-fed bison sausage, but that's just one of my personal favorites for an actual healthy meat.

I'm not a huge fan of the taste of these types of greens separately (kale, bok choy, mustard greens, etc)... however, pureed and blended into the sauce or soup actually makes a pretty delicious mixture and also adds TONS of nutrient density to your meals to satisfy your appetite and help you get leaner.

Another benefit is that since the greens are pureed in the blender after being softened, you actually absorb more vitamins and minerals, as the pureed greens are easier for your body to fully digest compared to just chewing them normally.

And this idea is a home run if you have kids... as this is truly a way for you to "sneak" more greens into your kids' meals without them even knowing you added them to the soup or sauce (as long as you did a good job with seasonings and recipe).

I hope you enjoyed this little tip today to help you and your family eat healthier and get leaner this year!

@ 1:45pm ET on March 22, 2010 great idea! I have always added frozen spinach to my tomato sauce as a way to hide it for the kids when they were young, but I love this idea and will try it too! Thanks a bunch! Patty
