a veggie post.

i love dipping a cucumber in ranch dressing. i love dipping carrot sticks in ranch dressing. i can safely say that i love eating any raw vegetable as long as i have ranch dressing.

however, i have never been a big fan of the cooked vegetable. growing up, i was never a fan of the mushy carrot. or the soggy onion. or even the soft broccoli stem. but as i inch towards the big 3-0... my taste buds have changed towards those warm vegetables.

tonight, tim made sauteed zucchini and onion with salt, pepper, garlic powder, crushed red pepper and a little bit of EVOO. it is one of my favorites!

my new favorite vegetable is an onion. i like it on everything! and i am just beginning to like eating it cooked..

one reason i love getting older, is the fact that i am starting to enjoy foods that are healthier... foods that i would of never touched ten years ago (like an onion)... i have gone out of my comfort zone with food. tim has definitely helped with this... otherwise my diet would consist of kraft mac and cheese, hot dogs, and spaghetti o's with toast.

Do you enjoy any foods now that you didn't when you were younger?

weighed in this morning. new number is 142.6... woooo hoooo! down 20.6 pounds since january 3rd. feels amazing...

Next weigh-in: Monday, May 23rd


  1. My food tastes have definitely changed! When I was a kid I wouldn't touch onions or peppers! I still don't like them raw...but tolerate them a lot more cooked with other things now! Still won't touch mushrooms though!

  2. i am right with you on the mushrooms.... they gross me out... possibly a texture thing. maybe i will start liking them as i inch towards the big 4-0!

  3. Ew! I hope not!! :)
