Greens with Italian Vinaigrette

I adore teaching TCM and the 5 elements... In Spring my yoga classes are based on liver/gallbladder meridian stretches. As green is the colour for this element, steamed or fresh greens are on our plates daily. Today's delicious greens with the vinaigrette dressing is quick and easy, try the recipe below.
I just finished teaching this side dish online as part of the spring menu. I then enjoyed lunch with my virtual client after we plated up and garnished the dish . How we adapt to change in these challenging times is key.
At this time, it is good to remind ourselves that green foods are high in tryptophan, an amino acid That helps produce serotonin a calming neurotransmitter. Stay well and take care.
