“Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon,” a very wise quote from Doug Larson. Very often many of us find ourselves satisfying our taste buds to what may seem soothing, than what is healthy and beneficial for our bodies. I made the change to a healthier lifestyle approximately two years ago, with the aim of loosing weight and starting living a healthier lifestyle, by being more cautious of what I put into my body. Although the transition took a while in getting adjusted to as a result of the vegetables being tasteless, dry and unenjoyable. My mom decided to make it interesting to eat by exploring her creativity, adding a little bit of good tasting low fat cheese melted onto the steamed vegetables, cream corn along with a combination of all natural seasoning of her choice, to give it the flavor and aroma that will have my mouth watering. The key towards acquiring the taste for vegetables is, finding a healthy way of getting it to be tasty by incorporating a little of what you like. Now I enjoy eating steamed vegetables, I have it for lunch and dinner very regularly. It’s less time consuming to prepare, tasty, and at the same time healthy.
