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?

Your body will get used to them, and you don’t have to eat them all at once. Divide them into two or three meals/snacks.
