If you’ve been reading our posts by now you know that we’re girls who truly love their veggies–and that it wasn’t always that way for us!  In fact, if you read our latest book The Nutrition Twins Veggie Cure, you know that growing up, the second our mom would turn her back to do the dishes, we’d feed our salad that she served with dinner to our best friend, Mary, and her black lab Buddy who were waiting to play with us!  There are many reasons we’ve been able to be those lucky girls who just now love their veggies–and it’s recipes like this that are one reason we made the switch.  Eating veggies that taste like this made it easy!  Yep, mix it up with delicious flavors and you certainly have our mouths watering. When we saw this brown and crispy zucchini with Parmesan cheese from DairyMakesSense.com, and for only 140 calories, we have to admit we were chomping at the bit to try it! 😉

And if you need help making the switch too, we’ve got some delish recipes like Easy Crunchy Braised Cabbage, Colorful Detox Salad, Caramelized Cauliflower with Olive Oil and Lemon Juice, Easy Peasy Seasoned Brussel SproutsRoasted detoxifying Veggies. And now this yumster!
