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
I’m starting to feel like Barbara Streisand in ‘The Mirror Has Two Faces’, when she starts to really take care of herself and her tastes preferences change.
Don’t know if it is the little voice in my head that’s telling me:
‘This is good for you’
that all that demon sugar, fat, and salt has left my body, and I now appreciate whole foods with a clean palate. But either way…. It works.
I’m looking forward to a small barbecue on Sunday. But I’m doing it my way. And this time I’m bringing the healthy entree. With so many people trying to lose weight, I’ve 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 that’s fine. But with something like this on the table, how can anyone feel deprived?
