Apples, Carrots, Juice

Saturday, December 08, 2012

I think one of steps toward eating healthier is getting the correct kitchen tools to help you in preparing them to eat. I have been eating an apple every day this week and what has helped me with this is a $5 apple corer (it's a 2pc manual tool bought at a chain store) and my Rada brand tomato-slicing knife. It's serrated and really sharp, so it's easy to cut the apple into slices (like a donut with a hole in the center) and then slice those in two. Bam! Easy to eat pieces in like one minute. I take them to work with me and eat either in the morning or at 2pm when I'm having my big bad slump. The other tool I have been using is my Rada vegetable peeler. It's quick to fix up carrots and then I slice them in bite-size pieces. I have been eating carrot and celery slices dipped in ranch salad dressing with pretzels as a snack in the evenings. It's an easy snack to prepare and eat.

    A love affair with apple juice, while not ordinarily the stuff of romantic novels, makes me feel excited. So reliable, so trustworthy, so respectable--apple juice and apples are the stuff of a sturdy solid romance.

    Just be careful of too much fermentation, though. Robert Frost wrote a delightful poem about a cow who ate too many fermented apples and went a bit "pazzo". emoticon

    And why is there no regular apple emoticon? emoticon
