Nifty Tip: Post Big Meal

Feeling overstuffed and overindulged?

Three to five servings of broccoli, kale or arugula the day after a big meal help flush out toxins from meats and processed foods. (Family Circle December 2010 )

Whats the best way to eat broccoli, kale, and arugula you ask? Here are my FAVES:
Broccoli- Roast with olive oil, chopped garlic, and black pepper in a 450 degree oven 10-15 minutes until ends start to char.
Kale- Saute with olive oil, thin sliced garlic, and the zest/juice from 1 lemon. Season with salt and pepper.
Arugula- Melt 1 TBSP butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add 1 TBSP of flour and whisk until mixture forms a brown paste. Add 1 c light cream, a pinch of nutmeg, salt and pepper. Continue whisking until edges just begin to bubble. Reduce heat to low and continue to stir until sauce thickens. Toss with whole wheat spaghetti until coated. Top with 1 c chopped arugula and 1/4 c shredded Parmesan and lightly fold in.
