Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter Y

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? The Daily Special: You Are What You Eat! I’ve been hearing this phrase my entire life, and it wasn’t until recently I actually began paying attention to it again. Oh sure, I knew moderation was key, exercise important, and water essential. I tried to maintain a balanced diet of fruit, vegetables, grains, dairy, meats, and even fats because it made a difference in how well I felt. Plus it reflected in my energy level as well. So, as I was collecting all this produce, it seemed like a no-brainer to share the snapshot with everyone. Bon Appétit.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

Ingredients:

Tomatoes

Green Beans

Assorted Peppers

Corn on the Cob

Zucchini

Onion

Garlic

Squash

Instructions:

Wash the vegetables. Eat them raw, cooked, puréed, chopped, minced, buttered, grilled, roasted, par-boiled, or baked.

“Make food simple

and let things taste

of what they are.”

~ Curnonsky (Maurice Edmond Sailland)

French Writer (1872-1956)

  1. Sneaky . . cheeky!

    And you’re absolutely right. I love a fried egg sammy as much as the next dude, but there’s only so much of the fried stuff . . and the junk food . . and the other indulgences that I can take. Being sensible and doing your thing in moderation IS the key, indeed. And the good stuff IS tasty stuff, so there’s that.

    Well done!

  2. Yay! You’re a team-player. Don’t get me wrong, I still have my weaknesses. By cooking for my husband, I choose healthier options than I did when I was living alone. As I’ve aged, though, I crave fewer sweets than I do carbs. What’s up with that?! 😜
