I PLAN TO MAKE THIS AN EXTRA HEALTHY JULY 4TH CELEBRATION.
I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD GET TO THE POINT WHERE THIS
VEGETABLE GRILL WOULD LOOK LIKE SUCH AN APPETIZING FEAST.
ALL IT NEEDS IS SOME PORTABELLAS, AND FRIENDS
Iím starting to feel like Barbara Streisand in ĎThe Mirror Has Two Facesí, when she starts to really take care of herself and her tastes preferences change.
Donít know if it is the little voice in my head thatís telling me:
ĎThis is good for youí
that all that demon sugar, fat, and salt has left my body, and I now appreciate whole foods with a clean palate. But either wayÖ. It works.
Iím looking forward to a small barbecue on Sunday. But Iím doing it my way. And this time Iím bringing the healthy entree. With so many people trying to lose weight, Iíve gotten a very positive response from friends. Someone is bringing the fruit. Someone else is getting the whole wheat buns. We will be grilling pineapple and peaches for dessert. And there will be watermelon of course. Some of the die hards insist on the traditional 4th of July menu, and thatís fine. But with something like this on the table, how can anyone feel deprived?
