High Cruciferous Vegetable Stew

Friday, September 03, 2010

I swear, Joel Fuhrman needs to hire someone to give his recipes better names. Can you imagine having someone over for dinner and telling them that you are going to serve your specialite de la maison: "High Cruciferous Vegetable Stew"? Frankly, it sounds like something that you eat the day before you are executed. Or maybe during some kind of famine when you can't find anything else to eat.

The recipe is promising: three kinds of beans , two leafy greens, two green veggies , mushrooms, celery, leeks, carrots, parsnips, zucchini, tomatoes, and more. I think it's going to be tasty--and very green.

How about Green Giant Vegetable Stew? That sounds fun and adventurous, doesn't it? Or Three Bean and Ten Veggie Soup? Or Red and Green Stew? (two kinds of red beans)

Well, I guess if you're a nutritarian and tuned into nutrition above all else, "High Cruciferous" is an attractive title. Just don't be surprised when you cheerily ask, "Ok, everybody, who wants some High Cruciferous Stew?", and you're the only one who wants to eat it.

    Oh my gosh! You have had a rough week and I love your sense of humor amid the negativity. Great blog, really made me laugh. I had along, rough day at work and needed a good laugh.

    I'm glad you got a chuckle out of this. I needed a chuckle myself, as my other car was broken into last night. They didn't take much, but it was a violation nonetheless. Just what I needed in the same week I was rear-ended.

    Hey guys, who wants seconds of the Anti-Cancer Soup? Double your protection, you know!

    Well, good grief! If they don't like the sound of it, I say just give them the Anti Cancer Soup!

    HA! Yep, I think I would have to institute a name change to serve that at my house!
