I'm so excited to embark on this Journey with you this week. Did you know it is my daughter's bat mitzva on Tuesday 1/21/2020. I am committed to making the next decade truly special for myself, my family and all of you!
Vegetables come in all colors, don't descriminate against them!
What does that mean? It is hard to eat well, be full and satisfied and rarely feel tempted by other less productive foods when we are hungry or bored. If you only eat 2-3 veggies, then the other foods look a lot more appealing. Those other foods cannot hold a candle to the life long beneficial nutrients in vegetables. Yes they will help you to lose weight, but the will also make you full of rainbows and happiness and perfection and magic and fly.... maybe not.
But they will make you healthier, get sick less often, enjoy a healthier old age and set that example as normal for your family as well. Not bad, not rainbows and flying but chocolate cake does not do that either.
How can you enjoy your veggies so much that you get excited about eating them at every meal? Experiment!
Acorn squash is one those vegetables for me. The combination of minimal prep time, ease of eating, versatility ( making it taste differently , very easily) and cost, hit all the happy places in my heart.
