Vegetables should make you smile–look at them! The peppers are sunny yellow and October orange. The cauliflower’s texture looks like a moon surface (or at least something that might be on the moon). My Dad hated hearing the crunch of celery, but that is one thing I love about celery. And when you pop some peanut butter and raisins on that celery, you have a great snack. Or as my Dad and brother did one Valentine’s Day… they put the celery into a heart-shaped chocolates box and gave that to my Mom. Since she is a health nut, she was trilled!
Green onions add zip to Thai soup or pasta, and butternut squash should be roasted. I grew up with all our vegetables boiled or pressure-cooked, so this roasting method is AMAZING to me; it adds so much flavor. 🙂
So, enjoy your vegetables this week–I have about four weeks until my wedding, and I’m going to be eating a lot of vegetables and meat to help me look my best for the big day. 🙂 How do you like to eat your vegetables?
