Today, it’s all about Vegetables.
I saw this special kind of broccoli at the grocery store one day and just had to take a photo of it. Isn’t it cool?
When I was a kid, I hardly ever ate salads and did not care much about the vegetables. Now, there are few vegetables I don’t like. I love them all pretty much, olives aside.
But still, I don’t eat them enough. Why is that? Is it because of the chopping and the dicing? Is it because I have been habituated to eat the noodles, meats and cheeses?
For about six months, I ate a mostly vegan diet. I read The China Study and that scared the crap out of me. Then, I let go of it because my family decided to give up sugar and we focused on doing that together. That was almost two years ago. We still don’t eat much sugar, but I am toying with the idea of going vegan again. What caused us problems the last time I went vegan is that I pretty much stopped cooking meals for my family and they didn’t like that.
No, I need another solution. These last few weeks, I’ve been cooking a lot at home. It is becoming a habit, which is good. Perhaps I can do like a vegetarian friend of mine does, and cook two entrees – one for her and one for her family?
I also have a friend at work, who read The China Study at my recommendation and he totally went for it. He has been eating vegan for several months now and he asks me why I am not doing it. 🙁 I’m just not… yet.
After watching Noah Kalina’s video on taking a selfie for 12.5 years, I thought that maybe one way to hold myself accountable might be to take photos of my meals? Wouldn’t that be interesting? I would certainly learn a lot! I’m not saying I’m going to do that. I am just thinking about it.
What about you? What is your relationship to vegetables? Do you eat a lot of them? Not enough? Tell us about it in the comments!
