wilted salad greens

Wilted Smoothie

"Starting new habits such as using up food scraps can be daunting, but starting first thing in the morning can kick things into motion. At home, and at the restaurant, we keep a bin for fruit and vegetable scraps. When I make my way to the kitchen in the morning, I check the bin and pull out wilted leafy greens and herbs to make a smoothie. It’s important to start my day feeling nourished by a tasty and healthy breakfast, and a sense of satisfaction from using ingredients that might otherwise have been tossed." —Justin Cournoyer, Ontario
