09 Jul 2008 Cauliflower has Never Tasted so Good
 |  Category: health  | Tags: , , ,


Tim and I just got back from a quick 2 mile jog, and I just scarfed down some cauliflower. I’ve never eaten a vegetable so hastily, and I’m glad I had it around to eat instead of something else.

Once the snow melted up here (and even when it came back) I started jogging and wanting to kick off my winter pounds I’ve been storing. I was doing pretty good for about a month, even worked my way up to be able to jog 4 miles, which I was very proud of! But then before we went to Belize I got sick, and during the mission trip I didn’t get much exercise, so I had about a month off from working out.

When we got back I was kinda bummed ’cause that was 3 weeks that I had lost with trying to get into shape. So I wanted to give me a kick start this time around and read something to give me more information on nutrition, so I got the book, The Biggest Loser. The show is amazing, so I looked at their website and was reading information, and instead of printing everything off I figured I might as well buy the book. I’m still reading through it, but the thing I’ve tried to implement already is eating a lot more fruits and veggies, and more veggies than fruits.

I figured fruits would be easy to eat, and veggies not too bad, but eating more veggies than fruits is something I mentally have to work on. While Tim and I were jogging our second mile and my stomach started to feel empty I started thinking of all the veggies we bought yesterday, and then was wanting some type of dip to go with it…luckily we didn’t have any. So we got home and I went straight to the fridge and the phone, for the cauliflower and to ask my Mom how to cut up a head of the stuff. I was really impressed with how good the cauliflower tasted (especially since we don’t have dip in the house). I hope it still tastes as good tomorrow when I eat it for a snack and not only after jogging 2 miles.
