Do It Veggie-Style. (+ Memorial Day Recipe)

Ok, maybe the title is a little suggestive, but I’m talking about vegetables, not something else.  ;)

It got your attention though, right? I did it because I’m extremely hot for my vegetables and I’ll do what it takes to convince you to become a little obsessed too. Why?

They’re a straightforward way to get the body and skin that you want.

Tell me…. are there really any debates (and there are a TON of debates in nutrition) about the fact that vegetables are good for you?? Not really. They have fiber to fill you up so you don’t eat the bad stuff, phytonutrients to fight cell damage, vitamins and minerals to get your skin glowing and looking younger and if you do it right, they are absolutely deliiiicious. You’ll be hooked.

You do NOT have to be vegan (or a masochist) to get into this.

Vegan’s a bit extreme and let’s be honest, it can be just as unhealthy as eating a bunch of crap processed food. Hell, Oreos can technically be considered vegan, but that doesn’t mean they’re good for you.

But now that we’re on the subjectwhat are the first four letters in vegan anyway?

Which stands for vegetables. Not 10 pieces of fruit, not vegan French toast or coconut bacon (which sounds pretty awesome by the way, but that’s beside the point). Vegetables.

Do you have some rebellious-kid block against eating them?

Get over it!  :) Cut up a veggie. Pour some vinaigrette over it. Eat and enjoy. You’ll want to do again—very soon.

It never hurts to keep it simple.

1.  S l o w l y  start adding them into what you make, starting one meal at a time (put that zucchini in your smoothie—I mean it). Goal: get vegetables into every meal.

2. Or start even easier and make a veggie dish for an upcoming holiday..…

Here’s an easy, non-mayonnaisey coleslaw recipe, just in time for Memorial Day. 

Make it, eat a boatload of it and resist the urge to eat that whole damn bag of Doritos this weekend—you know who you are.   ;)


Non-Mayonnaisey Coleslaw


1/2 medium cabbage, thinly sliced by hand or with a mandolin, or get a bag pre-shredded
1/2 red onion, very thinly sliced
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (preferably with “the mother”, Braggs is a great brand)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper


1. Put the sliced cabbage and onions together in a bowl.
2. In a separate bowl add the vinegar, honey, salt and pepper; whisk in the oil slowly.
3. Add the vinaigrette to the cabbage and onions and stir well to combine.
4. Let sit for at least 1 hour.
5. Enjoy :)

Cabbage and onions both contain sulfur and will make that beautiful skin glow and look younger naturally.
