Like most people, I need to get more vegetables into my diet. It just seems that other things like chips and crackers are easier to grab. The other day I was reading our local paper and I came upon an article by Diann Thomas. She has been writing about her successful weight loss; she included the tip about packing vegetables in canning jars. To me, this idea was genious!
Who doesn't have canning jars they could pack with vegetables? Or if you don't have any canning jars, compared to other glass containers, they really are quite inexpensive to purchase.
"Mom, can I have some celery?" Yes, that was just my daughter asking for some celery. SERIOUSLY, I wish you could have heard her! Putting prepared vegetables in jars works because they look appealing in the jars, and you can see the vegetables. They aren't just stuffed away in the vegetable bins of the fridge.
I know I post a lot of desserts on Red Couch Recipes, but we do like our vegetables too. Thanks for dropping by today.
