They Hated Their Vegetables

Well that was true, something amazing happens when vegetables are “Spiralized”. Not only my grandchildren enjoy the preparation, My Spiral Slicer brings out the child in us all. Fast, delicious and fun; now gourmet cooking is a party. “Grandpa I want more” is what my 5 year old granddaughter Coral and twin boys Liam and Kai, both 3. To sat they are a challenge at meal time is polite, yet they look forward to our cooking parties and now they love vegetables.

February 21st we asked a local talented photographer, Natalie Linbergh Photography,  to capture this fun with the kids eating and loving My Spiral Slicer’s production. The kids realized something different was going on so they had no interest in eating, they became too excited. We had yellow squash, zucchini, cucumber, carrots, onion and sweet potato, along with all the spices and extra virgin olive oil. First we whipped up a salad with arugula and spiralized cucumber, what a fresh and pleasant texture and taste! The cucumber flavor really comes to life when spiralized. Our salad dressing was Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar and extra virgin olive oil from Costco.

Natalie is great with children and she distracted them enough for the cooks to prepare the meal. The cameras, lighting and presence of Natalie made the children too excited to simply sit so we had a kid party. You may view our photos here. You will enjoy seeing what your children will also be happy to do, eat, enjoy and love their vegetables. OK they do play with the food a bit yet we want they eating healthy foods and liking them. With My Spiral Slicer the kids are always in a fun mood, they tell me it is because they love the taste. Odd because serving them the same food as it is naturally and they say they hate it, “get that off my plate”.
For the main course we spiralized, both squashes, added a few carrots and sweet potato and began heating the skillet for sautéing the veggies. At the same time we heated a second sauce pan to prepare the pasta sauce, our choice was from the White Linen Collection Gourmet Pasta Sauces by Victoria, also sold by Costco. We added some fresh whole garlic, quick roasted in the olive oil and then added the veggies. Spiralized they cook quickly so in three minutes we were sitting down to a fast, delicious, low calorie, filling meal fit for a king.

How to Lose Weight Fast and Improve Your Health

Lose weight fast, eat all you want and improve your health. Ok it is not as easy as that yet this is truly worth your consideration. Vegetables are not fattening, they promote health and are fast and easy to prepare. The trouble is that we need meat, carbohydrates, cheese and bulky foods to feel satisfied. This is true yet this truth is the issue we are seeking to solve, we need to lose weight and stay strong, full of energy and not starve. All who have been on any diet knows what I am saying yet you are reading this for solution, solution is what you will get.

Baby Boomers began, as all young people, we were going to change the world. Some of us did but most of us worked hard and are now approaching slower years. Exercise for some is routine and good habits are in charge. For the rest of us, we need help, we have tried and we are still fat. We have all heard that we need to replace bad habits with good ones, that habits are good, all we need do is replace bad ones with good ones. We know that our thoughts have shaped our lives, so thoughts then, shape our now and our todays connected create our future, one now at a  time. Dr. Joe Vitale and Eckhart Tolle are of course two of my mentors of this clear self-empowering thought process.

“I need help now”, ok here it is, one habit that must be achieved is the habit of avoiding foods which are contrary to good health, this definitely requires a change in thinking. Whoa, you are about to say I must stop eating what I love? What about adding fast, great tasting meals in minutes, made with healthy foods that taste great, fill you up and allow you the chance to change that habit of eating fattening foods? Easy, well that is a relative word, you see easy is not being 50 pounds overweight and becoming slower with each passing year. We know all about that yet we are needing support, again, fast great tasting meals that fill you up, combined with literally changing your mind about foods. Self-respect and self-love must be boosted until we have no more reasons why we are not going to change today. This is a serious subject and I am offering you a path, a simple easy to grasp path to make the changes that successful people are willing to make. Please, respond to this blog, let’s share what works together, let’s support each other and find that elusive set of habitual changes we need to succeed.
