Veggies, music, and an insane "diet"

Veggies. Ok, not the word some of you wanted to hear. I'm the odd one: I LOVE most veggies and I always have. When I was little, my parents thought I was gonna turn out to be a vegetarian... Not that there's anything wrong with that, haha. I just didn't like meat until I got a little older. But I still love my veggies. I prefer them raw, but if they have to be cooked, I'll steam them. You keep the nutrients in the veggies that way.

I like the boxed Green Giant stuff with no sauce. You take it out of the box, put the bag in the microwave for 4ish minutes and there you go! Instant veggies. (Sugar snap peas are my fave.)
And now, another good workout song:

Artist: Melissa Greene
Song: Next Step
Album: Next Step (2009)

And finally, I was browsing the 'net the other day when I came across a news article about a new "diet" that is supposedly going to help you live to 120 ( click ) . Seriously? That's ridiculous. Where do they come up with this stuff? How is cutting wheat, sugar, dairy, meat, and tap water out of your diet gonna help you live to 120? The sad thing is, some people will buy it...


  1. I hate that so few of the green giants are available with no sauce! I feel like I have to search to find the ones without cheese or butter!

  2. I know! It's a real pain. I was happy to find the sugar snap peas!

  3. Haha, when I was little the last thing I wanted to eat was a vegetable...unless it was broccoli and cheese sauce or canned green beans.

    But now I am in love with veggies. I would prefer them cooked, but I'll eat them raw. But raw broccoli just isn't my fav.

    Bizarre article. There was plenty of bias in it, but I'm not sure I'd want to live that long.
