A vegetable metamorphosis you have to eat to believe!

A vegetable metamorphosis you have to eat to believe!

If there’s one person on the planet who can prove plates full of veggies aren’t just for veg heads, it’s Martha Stewart. While far from a vegan manifesto, the title alone of her new book, meatless, can influence the masses to think outside the slaughterhouse.

Bill Clinton showed the public it’s possible to reverse illness by way of your mouth. Martha Stewart is showing the public that meatless meals can be decadent, trendy and impressive to the eye. Read more

A Perfect Marriage- Garlic and Greens

Simple ways to make vegetables fabulous any night of the week!

Today I’m sharing my tried and true methods of cooking green vegetables. Super easy, delicious and absolutely beautiful.

Remember, the we eat category is not about culinary prowess but about everyday healthy meals, snacks and side dishes that can be cooked on the fly.

Vegetables should be a large part of every family’s daily diet.

Green bean casseroles like your granny made do not deserve to enter your FIT body in 2012.

Gaaaaarlic, hints of hot red pepper, smells of the Louisiana French Quarter, and calcium from cute, crunchy seeds— that’s what I’m talking about. Leave the greens that taste like grass to the hippies. If I’m going to fill 1/2 my plate with vegetables every night, they have to be worthy of center stage.

Less is more when it comes to lovin’ those greens the FIT way! Read more
