I’ve been trying to eat more healthfully and so I’ve been trying to add more fiber and fresh foods to my diet. Israel has great vegetables, but I just hate cutting them. I know. That sounds awful. It’s a few minutes of my day. I have a good knife. But I don’t get any joy slicing and dicing.
I can’t seem to get past this aversion to vegetable dissection. But eating a cucumber whole seems weird and eating a tomato like an apple is not as easy as you might think.
I found these in the store last week. The carrot is included for scale. And it took all my strength to pretty it up like that.
Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, radishes, and a carrot for scale.
Feeling a lack of protein? Each vegetable is a hummus spoon. Even the spice in the hummus is evenly distributed throughout the container. No more stirring. No more getting too much spice in one swipe.
All I have to do is wash these bite-sized wonders and I’m good to go. Except that after a couple of handfuls of vegetables, I not only feel full, but a bit bloated as well. At least, I’ve added some fiber to my diet. That’s good, right?
