HALF a PLATE of WHAT?

I don’t know what you grew up eating.  In my home, we had a meat or poultry, a baked potato, and frozen steamed veggies.  Yeah, those veggies lacked something called flavor!  So did the potato but we were able to doctor it.  Come to think of it, so did the meat, before we discovered salt and pepper.  Herbs?  That was a name of a few uncles. We grew up with the food pyramid and we ate those 7 grains daily.

Well, now, in our later years, we are at the dietician (who is one step above the nutritionist and Medicare will pay).  And this is what we have to eat – not just at dinner – but for every meal and snack:  VEGETABLES!

My husband NEVER ate anything green before.  This is RADICAL!  When I told my daughter that we have to cut back on costs because of the stock market nose dive, she said that Vegan eating is cheaper.  That would kill two birds with one stone – increase vegetable and cut down on money. Besides, if we shrink our stomachs, we will even eat LESS and thus, save even more money.  BUT we have earned the right to be overweight! We have earned the right to feel full all day long!  Haven’t we?

Well, I filled my shopping cart with all the vegetables I recognized.  Here’s to vegetable soup following by HALF a plate of salad, followed by carrots for dessert!
