Eat more green in these Creative Ways

We all know that eating more veggies is good for our health, but finding fresh ways to incorporate it in our meals isn’t that easy. This is why Swedish appliance brand Electrolux has come up with some creative and flavorful ways to add more greens to your diet. ​

Grow and glow with Green

Smoothies Green smoothies are ideal for breakfast since these blended vegetables retain more of their fiber content, making you feel full longer.

Kickstart your day with Kimberly Snyder’s Glowing Green Smoothie, packed with lots of greens, and fruit to help balance that “green taste”. First, core and slice the apple and pear. Combine the romaine lettuce with the cold, filtered water and begin processing on low.Next, add the apple and pear slices, celery, fresh spinach, and banana. Lastly, add the juice of the lemon, ice, and blend until smooth.

Bring in the Indian twist

From cauliflower rice to cauliflower crust pizzas, this versatile and palatable produce seems to have no limit to its culinary potential. Another way to enjoy this powerhouse vegetable is to use it in a curry – bring an Indian flavor to your table this Cauliflower Mushroom Curry.

For the masala, sauté the medium slices of onions, tomato, garlic, and the ginger for 5 minutes. Allow it to cool and take it in a blender and add salt, granulated sugar, and chili powder. Blend until it reaches its paste-like consistency. For the curry, sauté the remaining onion. Once cooked, add mushroom and cauliflower and sauté for 10mins. Add the sauce and simmer for 10-15 mins until the curry reaches the desire consistency.

Healthy meals start with fresh ingredients and to helpkeep your produce fresh, Electrolux has also recently launched its latest line of NutriFresh™ refrigerators.  The new Electrolux NutriFresh™ Inverter French Door Refrigerator with FlexFresh (EHE6879A-BPH) has a feature that allows you to go from chilling meat and fish to cooking them in minutes, along with other features to keep food fresh.

Many people resort to deep freezing to keep meat and fish fresh and this Electrolux refrigerator comes with the UltraChill setting at -2°C which keeps items very cold but not frozen. This feature helps to preserve the texture of your food longer and reduces the need to defrost.

Different food types require unique storage conditions to stay fresh. This refrigerator comes with the FlexFresh drawer, an optimal storage compartment with five temperature settings (-23°C to +7°C), that enables you to store a wide array of food – from deli meats to seafood - at the right temperature to help them stay fresh. It also comes with the TasteLock Crisper with AutoHumidity Control, whichautomatically adjusts humidity levels depending on the contents of the drawer and releases excess moisture from the compartment to help keep fruits and vegetables fresh for up to 7 days.

A TwinTech Cooling System cools the fridge and freezer compartments separately, so food stays fresher and odours don't mix.

Another refrigerator designed to keep produce fresh for up to 7 days is the Electrolux NutriFresh™Inverter Top Freezer Refrigerator (ETB5400B-A-RPH). It comes with the TasteLock Crisper with NutriPlus™ filter, which creates a humid environment with optimal Vitamin C levels to lock in nutrients for longer, keeping your fruit and vegetables bursting with vitamins. It also has 360 Cooling which cools each individual shelf to maintain a stable temperature throughout the entire fridge. It not just prolongs your food’s freshness but also makes it tastier.

For keeping your meat and fish delicious, it has an enclosed Chill Room shelf that maintains optimal temperature in prime condition for longer. This refrigerator also comes with TasteGuard that eliminates 99.8% of bacteria for a cleaner, more hygienic fridge, and free from unwanted odour.
